About The ACT

The ACT is a college and career readiness exam. It measures English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing. The exam takes about 4.5 hours. The ACT measures how well a student is prepared for college and career after graduation. 

No specific score is required on the exam, but students must take the exam to graduate; There are no exceptions.

These test results are important for helping teachers and schools understand where students need support as well as establishing our school’s STAR rating from the Nevada Report Card.

All ACT testing for this requirement must be completed at school, in person, and on computers. There are no remote options; Students must test at Odyssey to meet this requirement.
