ACT or SAT selection survey opens August 15, 2022

ACT or SAT selection survey open August 15 – September 15, 2022

Each spring, juniors take state-sponsored college and career readiness tests. Each district, community school or chartered nonpublic school chooses which test to administer — either the ACT or SAT.

On Aug. 15, superintendents and community school and chartered nonpublic school administrators will receive a survey link to indicate their selection of the ACT or SAT for the class of 2024. The survey asks school leaders to confirm they will give the same test given in spring 2022 or choose another test for 2023. The survey will be open until Sept. 15.

To help districts make this important choice, the Department has updated its webpage for the state-funded ACT and SAT tests. For more information, such as test dates, view the SAT and ACT overview or watch the following recorded presentations:

Because the home districts of students attending joint vocational school districts and educational service centers will select the ACT or SAT test, joint vocational school district and educational service center superintendents will not receive a selection survey. However, these superintendents can work with local districts, community schools and chartered nonpublic schools to arrange to administer the state-funded college and career readiness tests to students attending their schools. Additional details on collaboration are available here.

The ACT and SAT vendors will contact participating districts in late October. Districts that will administer the tests online must become vendor-approved testing sites according to steps outlined on each vendor’s website for Ohio.
