Disrupted Learning: What We Know and How to Move Ahead

Join ACT for a 60-minute webinar on the effects of disrupted learning during the pandemic. This moderated discussion will delve into data-driven insights regarding pandemic-related score declines and overall education trends to help understand the pandemic’s effect on student success. It will also explore what students themselves told us about how the pandemic affected their learning, and allow time for you to submit questions to our researchers.

You’ll hear from ACT Principal Research Scientist Dr. Jeff Allen about how much ACT test scores have declined, and the implications for understanding the effects of disrupted learning.

ACT Lead Research Scientist Dr. Raeal Moore will dive into what more than 20,000 students told us about the consequences of learning during the pandemic and how their college choices changed as a result. This Student Voice research examines the student experience from when the pandemic hit the U.S. through present day, including suggestions from students for how to improve their learning experience.
