Okay so last year I took a pre-ACT test for Duke Tip. (Oh, did I forget to mention how hard it was? It was HARD.) It's this thing 7th graders can qualify for if they make really high grades on their state tests. (They are called EOG's for us.) About 40 people in my school qualified.

Now this year everyone in the 8th grade has to take the Explorer Test. It's a Pre-ACT test. What the heck? I've already taken it but I have to take it again. (In some areas 9th graders are people that take this test.)
It 'prepares you' for the real ACT, blah blah blah. Okay great, but the other test I took had the same motto. >_> So I'm already prepared. Razz

This tests also shows where your struggling and job paths you should consider taking. Yeah thats great, but thats called an aptitude test not the ACT. >_<

So have any of you guys ever taken it?

Nope nope. :3

We have Algebra 1 next year though, for those who qualify this year. If you don't you get Extended Algebra, and you take Algebra 1 in ninth.

Yeah that got that here too. Some people can take Algebra 1 in the 8th if they have high enough grade. Soo yeah I'm taking it this year, and man is it a pain. Razz I'm not looking forward to Algebra 2 next year. e_e

The eighth graders here take the Explorer test too. And then us Sophomores had to take a similar test (that took five hours and was a complete waste of time). I hate these tests for multiple reasons:

1. They only test us in the 'core' classes, math, science, and some type of reading comprehension test. They don't do social studies tests, or language arts, and it's unfair because some kids are really bad at math and science but they excel in social studies/history and so it reflects a bad grade!
2. It's compare with all of the kids in the U.S so your results can come out looking horrible (even if you did average/slightly above) because there are tons of kids who excel in these kinds of things and bump up the grading curve.
3. IT'S A HUGE WASTE OF TIME. They say it prepares us for the ACTs but first of all what 8th grader is already worrying about/studying for the ACTs? And second of all if we really wanted to know what they're like/how we'd do, we'd take the pre-ACTs as Juniors!

Sorry I just really hate these things >.>

That kinda sounds like the SAT's. I know that our school has paid for us Sophmors to take the PSAT's which is the practice version of the SAT's. I just got the review packet yesterday and the test is Wednesday for us, so, yah, something similar I propose.

lol Moss. I love it when you rant. :DD

And yeah, the ACT is a lot like the SAT. .-. I got to pick in Duketip which one I wanted to take but they 'strongly suggested' I took the ACT. >_>

I think the SATs are really good because it might have something to do with college.

Well, they both have to do with college. With SATs (used to stand for Scholastic Aptitude Test but now it's just an empty acronym) the results go to colleges and they determine if you're eligible to go to their school and the ACTs (used to stand for American College Testing, I think it's now an empty acronym too but I'm not sure) are basically used for the same thing except they focus on math, reading, and science. But I'm not sure which would be considered harder.

No, I'm pretty sure there level of difficulty is the same. But they reason they suggested we took the ACT is because more high schoolers in my area are taking that test now.
