Ordering PreACT Assessments

You can still order PreACT 8/9 and PreACT for the 2023-24 school year.
To help you enroll, please review either the PreACT 8/9 and PreACT ordering instructions or video, then click an enrollment button to begin. Enrollment for the current school year will close on May 10, 2024.

PreACT® 8/9 and PreACT® will now offer an online administration option starting in the 2024-25 school year.

Since 2015, ACT has offered high school juniors and seniors the choice of online or paper/pencil testing during ACT® District Testing, testing students on a school day. We understand the value of aligning familiar testing experiences for younger students and extending the choice of administration methods to educators. Embrace the flexibility of the choice between paper/pencil and online administration on a student-by-student basis. You decide what is best for each student and for your school.

Coming Soon–Enrollment for the 2024-25 school year.

You can order all PreACT assessments for the 2024-25 school year from one location. 
We’re simplifying the signup and account management process into one online form for PreACT 8/9, PreACT, and PreACT Secure.  

*Schools in FL, KS, OR, and OK will continue in CCRIS for the 2024-25 school year. 


Sign up to be notified when enrollment for next year opens in June 2024.
