Accommodations and English Learner Support for the ACT test

Test Accommodations for College Board and ACT Tests

Accommodations in your student's Frisco ISD developed IEP or 504 plan do not automatically apply to College Board or ACT tests. Accommodations for these tests must be requested through a separate process. There is no guarantee your student will be approved to use accommodations during the administration of the College Board and ACT tests. The approval of accommodations for these tests is determined solely by the College Board and ACT testing services. Families, and not Frisco ISD staff, are ultimately responsible for obtaining these accommodations. Frisco ISD will assist with the accommodation applications as a courtesy for all students with IEPs and 504 plans for families who timely follow the application process. It is important for families to adhere strictly to the Frisco ISD specified timelines for submitting all requests for accommodations and to provide all requested documentation. Failure to timely submit the requested information to Frisco ISD staff may result in an inability to submit the accommodation request. Any additional educational and neuropsychological testing needed or requested by the College Board or ACT is the responsibility of the family and will not be provided by Frisco ISD staff. Due to processing time, the Frisco ISD deadlines for accommodation requests and documentation are prior to the dates given by College Board or ACT. These dates are final. If you are requesting after the deadline, we will work with you to apply for accommodations for the next available test date.

For more information on submitting an accommodation request, contact the campus CCMR Facilitator.

TSIA (Texas Success Initiative Assessment)

The TSI is another exam to determine college readiness and is usually administered directly on college or university campuses. Frisco ISD does not currently administer the TSIA on any of our campuses. Dual credit students are required to either take the TSIA or meet the waiver requirements for the TSIA through other testing options. Students interested in taking the TSIA should contact the college directly where they are applying. Due to COVID 19, the TSIA is currently not being administered but it is anticipated that there will be testing options opening up soon.

Free Personalized Online Exam Preparation

The College Board and Khan Academy have partnered to provide students with free, personalized SAT test preparation. All Frisco ISD 10th and 11th grade students took the PSAT in October and all 11th graders took the SAT in March. Students can link their scores to the Khan Academy site and receive a personalized pathway to learn content and skills. Students who have not yet taken a PSAT or SAT can complete diagnostic tests online and also receive a personalized learning pathway. Research indicates that students who spend 20 hours studying on Khan Academy earn a 115 point average increase on their SAT. All of the resources are free. For more information on how to enroll, please see the website or follow these directions.

The ACT organization also provides free online ACT preparation through the ACT Academy. For more information, please visit the website.

College Admissions

While most colleges and universities require a college entrance exam such as the SAT or ACT, some universities are going “testing optional” and not requiring them as part of the admissions process. Please review the website for any college or university that you are interested in to learn about their specific admissions requirements.
