This test is for Kindergarten students and has been completed for the 21-22 school year.
To be eligible for graduation, all students must now participate in Nevada’s College and Career Readiness (CCR) assessment in their junior year. A particular score on the CCR assessment is not required for graduation, but certain scores have benefits such as avoiding remedial college courses, scholarship awards, and college entrance. Nevada has contracted with the ACT Plus Writing. This exam is done on the computer and will take approximately four hours.
This is a timed test. Students are not allowed to return to a section once it has completed. They are also not allowed to work ahead. CLICK HERE to download a study guide.
