Non-Profit ACT After School Program for High School Students
Organized by: Tramell Orr
Purpose We write this letter to propose a solution to the problem many teenagers who rely on a good ACT score face. The problem is that many teens are not familiar with the ACT and lack experience when taking it for the first time. Some students only take the ACT once and are either content with their score or displeased with their score. If a student takes the ACT without specific test strategies, their score will most likely be lower than the score they could potentially reach. Problem The average composite ACT score for the state of Ohio is 22. Some students who take the ACT are not familiar with the test the first time they take it. If a student only takes the ACT once and didn’t prepare properly there is a high chance they could have improved their score. As a result of an individual being inexperienced and unfamiliar with the ACT they will most likely have lower scores on the ACT than individuals who have a general understanding of the test. Solution to the Problem Recognizing the stress students are already under due to challenging classes, we propose an HPAC group focused on helping each student develop an effective and unique test strategy to use while taking the ACT. We want to ensure that every student who participates in our group doesn’t take the ACT for the first time without any prior techniques. HOW Costs We want to limit our HPAC group to no more than 20 students. Each students will need an Kaplan ACT Premier 2016 with 8 Practice Tests book. We also need Barron's ACT Flash Cards, 2nd Edition. Also, to keep students engaged we have to provide food for each session (one day per week).
