ACT & SAT Test Prep Through OhioMeansJobs

HTHS students have access to full length ACT practice exams and full length SAT practice exams through their Ohio Means Jobs accounts.  Students can login by following the link below and navigating to "Assessments and Training" in the "Plan It" section, or by going to the backpack and clicking "Assessments and Training." Students may take any of the practice tests, but should start with the first test, then do the second because portions the other tests may be completed in English, math, and science classes. Nevertheless, students who wish to take all three tests on their own are certainly permitted.
