Secrets of the trade

“Maybe it could be optional for students who believe they can take the college level course of math.”

Let me tell you something about ACT/SAT tests and college. Not only do your overall scores qualify you to get into a good school, but the individual subject scores help the school decide where to place you in certain subjects. Specifically, at the school where I work, a student must achieve 17 or higher on the math portion of the ACT in order to be able to take the “college level course of math.” It’s not about beliefs of the students, it’s about scores.

Or admissions offices could just ask students if they think they could handle it.
