Starting next fall, IHS freshmen will be required to take a pre-ACT test as soon as they start the school year, USD 257 school board members decided Monday night.

The test is a good predictor of how a student will score on the actual ACT test, typically taken during a student?s junior or senior year as part of a college preparation assessment. Some colleges and universities require a minimum score for admittance.

By taking the preliminary test, students will have a better idea where they need to focus skills, Iola High School principal Scott Crenshaw told the board.
