11th Grade ACT Testing is Going Digital

As part of Canyons District’s commitment to college-readiness, the District’s high schools sponsor on-campus ACT testing for 11th-grade students each spring — and this year, all testing will be digital.

The adoption of online testing is in line with plans announced in 2019 by makers of the ACT to move to computer-based testing in order to provide more opportunities for test-taking.

The online format is familiar to Utah students who have been taking digital end-of-year tests for some time. It covers the same content as the paper exam and has the same questions, time limits and scoring system. Computer-based test-takers are still permitted access to scratch paper and a calculator. Two additional benefits: The online test features an on-screen timer, which can help test-takers manage their time, and digital-test scores tend to be reported more quickly than those for paper exams.

The date scheduled for districtwide ACT testing for high school juniors is Tuesday, March 7.

More information about the online ACT, including free practice tests and study guides, can be found at ACT.org. School counselors are also an excellent resource.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
