Through MyACT, students can complete the questions in the classroom, at home, or up to 2 days after testing. For student testing paper, the non-test items will no longer be bubbled in on the on the answer document. For students testing online, this task will simply be moving into MyACT (previously completed in Student Web Services (SWS)). This flexibility allows schools to streamline this pretest activity, and determine when and where it is completed.
