Kasson-Mantorville High School ACT/SAT Code: 241-245
 

The ACT is a standardized test to assess college readiness and high school achievement. Most colleges use it as an entrance exam to make admission decisions.

Starting in March 2016 a new SAT was designed and administered to students. Read more about this test on the College Board website. The SAT is also a college admissions test. Most students in our area take the ACT.

For students interested in attending a community college after graduation, the Accuplacer ensures the students' placement in the correct classes. It is a computer based test that is untimed and tests students in sentence skills, reading comprehension, and math. To learn more about the Accuplacer click here.


The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a timed, multi-aptitude test, which is given at more than 14,000 schools and Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS) nationwide and is developed and maintained by the Defense Department (DoD). 

The ASVAB helps the DoD not just determine whether you are a good fit to join the service, but also which service branch you might be best for and even what military jobs you can hold after you finish basic training or boot camp. The better your ASVAB score, the broader your options.

Students at KMHS have the opportunity to take the ASVAB test in the spring of their junior year to fulfill their graduation test requirement. Learn more at TodaysMilitary.


On April 2, 2022, the PreACT assessment will be administered to all KMHS 9th & 10th graders.  Juniors will be taking the ACT test at the same time that day while the seniors will have a online flex day at home.

The results of the PreACT offer several benefits to our students, including:

  • Early practice for the ACT test
  • PreACT score and predicted ACT score ranges align to the ACT 1–36 scale
  • Students may opt to share their information with colleges and scholarship agencies
  • ACT Interest Inventory results provide students with a personalized view of interests with college and career alignment
  • Valuable results provide actionable insights to help educators, parents and students make important decisions for the future
  • Rapid reporting turnaround within 5-10 days of receipt of answer documents allows for early and effective planning to ensure students can attain the future and career success they envision

For your planning purposes, breakfast will not be served the morning of testing, however, lunch will be provided. Students will report to their assigned testing rooms at 8:00am.

Students will only need to bring  the following items with them that morning:

  • Some #2 Pencils
  • An approved calculator if they have one

There are several things parents can do to positively contribute to their child’s success.

  • Encourage your child to put forth their best effort with positive statements, expressing confidence in their abilities and efforts.
  • Make sure they get a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast.
  • Attendance during testing is very important.

Please reschedule any appointments that may take your child out of school on the testing dates. Your partnership is valuable in this effort, and we appreciate your support. 


The optional PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test) and the NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) will be given to juniors on October 13, 2021.

Registration opens the spring of students' sophomore year prior to the test date.  Limited number of spots will be open in the fall for late registration.  There is a fee to take the PSAT test.


The exam is given during the school day. Find out more about the PSAT test here.
