  • Free ACT and SAT Practice!

     albert

    All UCPS high school students have access to timed practice ACT and SAT tests as well as independent practice through Albert. Students should log in with Clever, beginning with the student startup page. 

    Once logged in, students will see a course with their grade level and ACT/SAT Practice in the title. They can click into the course and begin the practice test. Each section is timed just like the real ACT/SAT tests. Students can take individual sections of each test separately. After taking the tests, students can see which skills they need to work on. A second practice test will open at the beginning of the second semester.

    • Students have access to a timed practice SAT and ACT assessment. 
    • Once students have completed the timed test, they can practice. Scroll to the bottom of the landing page on Albert and choose the subject from the "Independent Practice" section.

    A video explaining how to access the tests, practice skills, and convert the number of questions answered correctly to an approximate ACT or SAT test is coming soon!

    Albert provides score calculators so that students can see an estimate of what their score would have been on these assessments.
