Retest Restriction – If a student tested previously via residual or any other non-national testing, the retest should be taken on a national test day. If this is not possible, a minimum of 60 days must elapse before another residual test may be taken. This restriction is necessary to ensure that recent familiarity with questions on the test form is not reflected in inappropriately higher scores. It is the responsibility of the testing institution to incorporate this restriction into its residual testing procedures. If the 60-day time limit is violated, the retest scores will be canceled automatically. No refund will be made for such canceled retests.

Scores  –Residual ACT scores are for students who: 1) are enrolled, 2) have been admitted, or 3) are applying for admission to SE.  Students may view scores after 1:00 p.m. on the following Monday after each test date in the Administration Building, Room 101.  Scores are valid only at SE and cannot be transferred to any other institution or agency.   No score reports will be generated by SE (or ACT) to students, high schools, colleges, or scholarship agencies.

Calculators – ACT permits examinees to use a calculator on the Mathematics Test (Test 2) but not on any of the other tests.  Use of a calculator is optional.  All problems on the Mathematics Test can be solved without a calculator.  Any four-function, scientific, or graphing calculator may be used, unless it is specifically prohibited as described below.
