Floyd Co. students perform well on the EXPLORE exam
Several Floyd County students recently received perfect scores in one or more areas of the EXPLORE exam. According to ACT, Inc., who produce the exam, EXPLORE contains four curriculum-based assessments â€” English, mathematics, reading and science, just like the regular ACT. The assessment is based on the major areas of high school and postsecondary instructional programs and measures the skills and knowledge needed for college success. Additionally, EXPLORE includes a career exploration component that stimulates studentsâ€™ thinking about future plans and relates personal characteristics and aptitudes to career options.
