General Test Tips

• Carefully read the instructions on the cover of the test booklet .
• Read the directions for each test carefully.
• Read each question carefully.
• Pace yourself—don’t spend too much time on a single passage or question.
• Pay attention to the announcement of five minutes remaining on each test.
• Use a soft-lead No. 2 pencil with a good eraser. Do not use a mechanical pencil or ink pen; if you do, your answer document cannot be scored accurately.
• Answer the easy questions first, and then go back and answer the more difficult ones if you have time remaining on that test.
• On difficult questions, eliminate as many incorrect answers as you can, then make an educated guess among those remaining.
• Answer every question. Your scores on the multiple-choice tests are based on the number of questions you answer correctly. There is no penalty for guessing.
• If you complete a test before time is called, recheck your work on that test.
• Mark your answers properly. Erase any mark completely and cleanly without smudging.
• Do not mark or alter any ovals on a test or continue writing the essay after time has been called. If you do, you will be dismissed and your answer document will not be scored.

Multiple-Choice Tips

English
• Be aware of the writing style used in each passage.
• Consider the elements of writing that are included in each underlined portion of the passage. Some questions will ask you to base your decision on some specific element of writing, such as the tone or emphasis the text should convey.
• Be aware of questions with no underlined portions—that means you will be asked about a section of the passage or about the passage as a whole.
• Examine each answer choice and determine how it differs from the others. Many of the questions in the test will involve more than one aspect of writing.
• Determine the best answer. Read and consider all of the answer choices before you choose the one that best responds to the question.
• Reread the sentence, using your selected answer.

Mathematics
• Read each question carefully to make sure you understand the type of answer required.
• If you choose to use a calculator, be sure it is permitted, is working on test day, and has reliable batteries. Use your calculator wisely.
• Solve the problem.
• Locate your solution among the answer choices.
• Make sure you answer the question asked.
• Make sure your answer is reasonable.
• Check your work.

Reading
• Read the passage(s) carefully.
• Read and consider all of the answer choices before you choose the one that best responds to the question.
• Refer to the passage(s) when answering the questions.

Science
• Read the passage carefully.
• Refer to the scientific information in the passage when answering the question.
• Read and consider all of the answer choices before you choose the one that best responds to the question.
• Note conflicting viewpoints in some passages.

• Review the latest information on permitted and prohibited calculators.
• You are not required to use a calculator. All the problems can be solved without a calculator.
• If you regularly use a calculator in your mathematics work, use one you’re familiar with when you take the mathematics test. Using a more powerful, but unfamiliar, calculator is not likely to give you an advantage over using the kind you normally use.

Test Booklet Instructions

The following instructions are printed on the cover of the multiple-choice test booklet. The instructions for the ACT writing test are different.

This booklet contains tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science. These tests measure skills and abilities highly related to high school course work and success in college. Calculators may be used on the mathematics test only.

The questions in each test are numbered, and the suggested answers for each question are lettered. On the answer document, the rows of ovals are numbered to match the questions, and the ovals in each row are lettered to correspond to the suggested answers.

For each question, first decide which answer is best. Next, locate on the answer document the row of ovals numbered the same as the question. Then, locate the oval in that row lettered the same as your answer. Finally, fill in the oval completely. Use a soft lead pencil and make your marks heavy and black. Do not use ink or a mechanical pencil.

Mark only one answer to each question. If you change your mind about an answer, erase your first mark thoroughly before marking your new answer. For each question, make certain that you mark in the row of ovals with the same number as the question.

Only responses marked on your answer document will be scored. Your score on each test will be based only on the number of questions you answer correctly during the time allowed for that test. You will not be penalized for guessing. It is to your advantage to answer every question even if you must guess.

You may work on each test only when your test supervisor tells you to do so. If you finish a test before time is called for that test, you should use the time remaining to reconsider questions you are uncertain about in that test. You may not look back to a test on which time has already been called, and you may not go ahead to another test. To do so will disqualify you from the examination.

Lay your pencil down immediately when time is called at the end of each test. You may not for any reason fill in or alter ovals for a test after time is called for that test. To do so will disqualify you from the examination.

Do not fold or tear the pages of your test booklet.

DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOKLET UNTIL TOLD TO DO SO.

Writing Test Booklet Instructions

The following instructions are printed on the cover of the writing test booklet.

This is a test of your writing skills. You will have forty (40) minutes to read the prompt, plan your response, and write an essay in English. Before you begin working, read all material in this test booklet carefully to understand exactly what you are being asked to do.

You will write your essay on the lined pages of the answer document provided. Your writing on those pages will be scored. You may use the unlined pages in this test booklet to plan your essay. Your work on these pages will not be scored.

Your essay will be evaluated based on the evidence that it provides of your ability to:

  • analyze and evaluate multiple perspectives on a complex issue
  • state and develop your own perspective on the issue
  • explain and support your ideas with logical reasoning and detailed examples
  • clearly and logically organize your ideas in an essay
  • effectively communicate your ideas in standard written English

Lay your pencil down immediately when time is called.

DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOKLET UNTIL YOU ARE TOLD TO DO SO.

    Workforce Developers

    Partnering for a stronger workforce

    Business executives and economic development consultants work to identify the best locations for expansion and relocation. The availability of skilled labor is a critical factor in making these decisions.

    A growing number of states, communities, and organizations are choosing WorkKeys and the National Career Readiness Certificate as the foundation for career readiness initiatives that energize their economic development and workforce strategies.

    Together WorkKeys and the NCRC help communities and economic developers:

    • Encourage businesses to stay in the community
    • Increase the tax base through more profitable business partners
    • Decrease unemployment rates
    • Improve the quality of life for community residents
    • Provide focused education and training to meet both individual and organization goals

    India s Fastest Broadband Internet Service Providers #indias #fastest #broadband #internet #service


    India’s Fastest Broadband Internet Service Providers

    The future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed, says science fiction author William Gibson. It’s especially true for the state of broadband in the country. Content delivery network Akamai notes in its Q3 2015 State of the Internet report that India, at 2.5mbps, had the lowest average connection speed among ten Asia Pacific countries surveyed in the region. The global leader, South Korea, has an average connection speed of 20.5mbps.

    If you’re looking for the fastest speeds in India, try heading to Kochi-based incubator Startup Village, the first in the country to get Gigabit (1000mbps) speeds in late 2012. India’s public universities are also providing phenomenally fast speeds, judging by Speedtest screenshots on a Quora thread. We also looked at various telecom forums, Reddit discussion groups, and of course, searched for connections and prices on our own as well, to try and catch all the major providers who are claim to be delivering high speed connections. Do note that we have not verified these speeds first hand.

    For the purposes of this roundup, we’ve tried to identify wired broadband ISPs in the country that that are offering download speeds of 50mbps speeds or higher to consumers. Well-known ISPs such as Tikona, Airnetwork, or Mach1 broadband, Alliance Broadband, or Excell Broadband (and many more) that offer a top speed under 50mbps didn’t make the cut.

    With a growing number of ISPs offering 50mbps at affordable prices, it seems to be a good cutoff point, available at monthly billing plans between Rs. 1,500 – Rs. 2,000, including taxes. Note that ISPs calculate speed in bits – so a 50mbps speed translates to downloads of 6.25MBps or megabytes per second speeds, which should be ample enough for a family to make video calls, stream movies or music, and download that Windows update simultaneously.

    1) Hayai
    Incorporated in 2011, Hayai Broadband Private Limited has the most consumer friendly prices and speeds, with monthly plans ranging from Rs. 899, pre-service taxes for a 100mbps connection with a 50GB data cap. The company offers 1Gbps speeds with a FUP (Fair Usage Policy) cap of 500GB for Rs. 5,099. The company also an arcane 95 percentile billing plan, along with all you can eat plans, but based on views of users on broadband forums in the country, it has been slow to expand, and there is a substantial waiting list for its service in Mumbai. The company has shared a list of cities it plans to expand to in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Delhi, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu.

    2) Hathway
    Hathway provides broadband services in over 13 cities, but not all of them support 50mbps speeds, which are presently available in the nine cities listed below. Plans range from Rs. 2,099 for a three month plan at speeds of 50mbps with a 20GB monthly FUP data cap. Hathway’s ‘Adv Fiber HD 125 plan’ offers 5mbps speeds with a 125GB data limit at a competitive three month subscription price of Rs. 3,749.

    Top Speeds. 50mbps
    Cities. Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Surat, Pune, Goa, Vishakapatnam, Navi Mumbai
    Website. www.hathway.com

    3) ACT Fibernet
    Focused primarily in South India, ACT (Atria Convergence Technologies Pvt Ltd.) is the largest non-telco ISP in India. The company provides fibernet, digital TV and HD TV services, with affordable monthly tariffs under Rs. 2,000 for 50-100mbps speeds in Bengaluru. Its Fair Usage Policy (FUP) applies only on downloads, while uploads are not counted in FUP, according to the FAQs. As ACT Fibernet uses fiber-to-the-home technology, it doesn’t require any modem or a land-line phone, and can be plugged straight into a PC with an Ethernet port, following which one needs to log into their Web portal with their account ID and password. This can be a bit of a pain point, but ACT Fibernet lists five reasons why it has decided to go with such a configuration .

    Top Speeds: 125mbps
    Cities: Bangalore, Chennai, Vijaywada, Nellore, Eluru, Vishakapatnam, Coimbatore, Guntur
    Website: www.acttv.in

    4) YOU Broadband
    YOU Broadband offers cable modem broadband services to residential, SME and corporate customers in the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Haryana, Telengana, and Andhra Pradesh. The ‘YOU WTF 100’ plan offers a 100mbps plan for 200GB per month at Rs. 1,732 in Bengaluru. However, while personal user accounts may vary, Reddit users seem to prefer Act Fibernet over YOU Broadband in terms of consistency of speed, up time, and user support.

    Top Speeds: 100mbps
    Cities: Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Kakinada, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Navsari, Powai, Pune, Surat, Thane, Vadodara, Vishakapatnam.
    Website: www.youbroadband.in

    5) Den Boomband
    Primarily focused on North India, Den Boomband offers 50mbps plans starting at Rs. 1,200, with a 30GB FUP data cap. The 100mbps plans are priced at Rs. 3,500, with a 100GB data cap. The website has a map-based search to find out if it’s available in your locality, and uses a vote-based system to map out its expansion plans. Many users have complained about outages and slow speeds though, and Den has a 1.5 star rating on Facebook.

    6) Spectranet
    Headquartered in New Delhi, Spectranet says it provides truly unlimited broadband, with no caps on data consumed. Its ‘Success Unlimited’ plan provides 50mbps speeds at Rs. 5,547. Spectranet is currently running a three-month trial offer with 100mbps broadband speed in Gurgaon at Rs 1,199 per month with no download limit, and said that it will be rolling out this offer in other cities this year.

    7) Asianet
    Operational in a total of 14 districts in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, Asianet offers FTTH/DOCSIS 3 connections with plans for 50mbps speeds starting at an affordable Rs. 549, but with a 7GB usage limit. It has over five other plans at 50mbps, with the ‘Xtream 2499’, offering a 160GB usage limit at a monthly subscription price of Rs. 2,499. The ISP is notable for providing a FUP breaker, which is higher than the monthly usage limit, following which it charges users 20 paise per MB.

    Top Speeds: 100mbps
    Cities: Trivandrum, Salem, Coimbatore, Kottayam, Palakkad, Cochin, Calicut, Thrissur, Alleppey, and more.
    Website: www.asianetbroadband.in

    8) Jetspot Fiber
    Founded in 2015, Jetspot offers FTTH (fiber-to-the-home) plans starting from 5mbps at Rs. 699 per month with a 10GB data cap,to 60mbps speeds at Rs. 9,999 per month. For the Rs. 9,999 plan, speeds are dialed down to 10mbps after using 150GB. The company is presently running a promotional plan called the ‘Fiber Nitro’, for Rs. 999, which offers speeds of upto 100mbps uptil 10GB, and 1mbps unlimited speeds post the data cap.

    9) Airtel
    Telecom operator Airtel is offering FTTH plans in select buildings in Delhi NCR region, Mumbai, and Bengaluru. You will have to contact your local Airtel agent to find out if FTTH services are available in your area – ask for the availability of Airtel’s Bolt plans, which offer 100mbps with a monthly data cap of 100 GB starting Rs. 2,399.

    Others
    Apart from these providers, we found some more connections but didn’t see as much discussion around these. BSNL, the state owned telecom provider offers fibre to the home services in 18 circles. but has rather exorbitant prices for 50mbps plans, at Rs. 9,999 per month. MTNL also offers FTTH services in Delhi at a monthly service charge of Rs. 2,990, and Mumbai at Rs. 4,999.

    Tata Docomo had launched its FTTH services in July 2013, starting with Bengaluru. However, it is not very clear where else it is offering its services, as its website doesn’t seem to clearly mention any details on cities where it is available, and customer care is clueless as well. Tata Docomo offers a 50mbps plan starting at Rs. 1,999, which comes with a 20GB data cap.

    General Test Tips

    • Carefully read the instructions on the cover of the test booklet .
    • Read the directions for each test carefully.
    • Read each question carefully.
    • Pace yourself—don’t spend too much time on a single passage or question.
    • Pay attention to the announcement of five minutes remaining on each test.
    • Use a soft-lead No. 2 pencil with a good eraser. Do not use a mechanical pencil or ink pen; if you do, your answer document cannot be scored accurately.
    • Answer the easy questions first, and then go back and answer the more difficult ones if you have time remaining on that test.
    • On difficult questions, eliminate as many incorrect answers as you can, then make an educated guess among those remaining.
    • Answer every question. Your scores on the multiple-choice tests are based on the number of questions you answer correctly. There is no penalty for guessing.
    • If you complete a test before time is called, recheck your work on that test.
    • Mark your answers properly. Erase any mark completely and cleanly without smudging.
    • Do not mark or alter any ovals on a test or continue writing the essay after time has been called. If you do, you will be dismissed and your answer document will not be scored.

    Multiple-Choice Tips

    English
    • Be aware of the writing style used in each passage.
    • Consider the elements of writing that are included in each underlined portion of the passage. Some questions will ask you to base your decision on some specific element of writing, such as the tone or emphasis the text should convey.
    • Be aware of questions with no underlined portions—that means you will be asked about a section of the passage or about the passage as a whole.
    • Examine each answer choice and determine how it differs from the others. Many of the questions in the test will involve more than one aspect of writing.
    • Determine the best answer. Read and consider all of the answer choices before you choose the one that best responds to the question.
    • Reread the sentence, using your selected answer.

    Mathematics
    • Read each question carefully to make sure you understand the type of answer required.
    • If you choose to use a calculator, be sure it is permitted, is working on test day, and has reliable batteries. Use your calculator wisely.
    • Solve the problem.
    • Locate your solution among the answer choices.
    • Make sure you answer the question asked.
    • Make sure your answer is reasonable.
    • Check your work.

    Reading
    • Read the passage(s) carefully.
    • Read and consider all of the answer choices before you choose the one that best responds to the question.
    • Refer to the passage(s) when answering the questions.

    Science
    • Read the passage carefully.
    • Refer to the scientific information in the passage when answering the question.
    • Read and consider all of the answer choices before you choose the one that best responds to the question.
    • Note conflicting viewpoints in some passages.

    • Review the latest information on permitted and prohibited calculators.
    • You are not required to use a calculator. All the problems can be solved without a calculator.
    • If you regularly use a calculator in your mathematics work, use one you’re familiar with when you take the mathematics test. Using a more powerful, but unfamiliar, calculator is not likely to give you an advantage over using the kind you normally use.

    Test Booklet Instructions

    The following instructions are printed on the cover of the multiple-choice test booklet. The instructions for the ACT writing test are different.

    This booklet contains tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science. These tests measure skills and abilities highly related to high school course work and success in college. Calculators may be used on the mathematics test only.

    The questions in each test are numbered, and the suggested answers for each question are lettered. On the answer document, the rows of ovals are numbered to match the questions, and the ovals in each row are lettered to correspond to the suggested answers.

    For each question, first decide which answer is best. Next, locate on the answer document the row of ovals numbered the same as the question. Then, locate the oval in that row lettered the same as your answer. Finally, fill in the oval completely. Use a soft lead pencil and make your marks heavy and black. Do not use ink or a mechanical pencil.

    Mark only one answer to each question. If you change your mind about an answer, erase your first mark thoroughly before marking your new answer. For each question, make certain that you mark in the row of ovals with the same number as the question.

    Only responses marked on your answer document will be scored. Your score on each test will be based only on the number of questions you answer correctly during the time allowed for that test. You will not be penalized for guessing. It is to your advantage to answer every question even if you must guess.

    You may work on each test only when your test supervisor tells you to do so. If you finish a test before time is called for that test, you should use the time remaining to reconsider questions you are uncertain about in that test. You may not look back to a test on which time has already been called, and you may not go ahead to another test. To do so will disqualify you from the examination.

    Lay your pencil down immediately when time is called at the end of each test. You may not for any reason fill in or alter ovals for a test after time is called for that test. To do so will disqualify you from the examination.

    Do not fold or tear the pages of your test booklet.

    DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOKLET UNTIL TOLD TO DO SO.

    Writing Test Booklet Instructions

    The following instructions are printed on the cover of the writing test booklet.

    This is a test of your writing skills. You will have forty (40) minutes to read the prompt, plan your response, and write an essay in English. Before you begin working, read all material in this test booklet carefully to understand exactly what you are being asked to do.

    You will write your essay on the lined pages of the answer document provided. Your writing on those pages will be scored. You may use the unlined pages in this test booklet to plan your essay. Your work on these pages will not be scored.

    Your essay will be evaluated based on the evidence that it provides of your ability to:

    • analyze and evaluate multiple perspectives on a complex issue
    • state and develop your own perspective on the issue
    • explain and support your ideas with logical reasoning and detailed examples
    • clearly and logically organize your ideas in an essay
    • effectively communicate your ideas in standard written English

    Lay your pencil down immediately when time is called.

      WorkKeys

      Educators

      Using WorkKeys in your classroom

      If students are going to be adequately prepared for the workforce, they need to understand the requirements for jobs they are considering. WorkKeys helps students determine the skill levels required for various jobs.

      An increasing number of states are recognizing the importance of statewide WorkKeys testing, reexamining state standards and the content taught in high school to ensure that they focus on college and career readiness skills. The ACT ® test and WorkKeys assessments are recognized as the leading educational assessments for use in statewide testing.

      States Using the ACT and WorkKeys

      Alaska
      Public high school juniors take WorkKeys assessments in Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Locating Information under a program called Alaska Career Ready. The goal of Alaska Career Ready is to provide families with a free resource that helps them prepare their students for the world of work. Students are eligible to earn the ACT National Career Readiness Certificate.

      Michigan
      High school juniors take the Michigan Merit Exam (MME), which includes state-developed tests, the five tests in the ACT with writing, and the WorkKeys Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information, and Locating Information assessments. Students are eligible to earn the National Career Readiness Certificate.

      North Dakota
      High school juniors are required to take either the four multiple-choice ACT tests or the WorkKeys Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information, and Locating Information assessments. Students are eligible to earn the National Career Readiness Certificate.

      Wyoming
      High school juniors are required to take either the four multiple-choice ACT tests or the WorkKeys Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information, and Locating Information assessments. The cost for either set of assessments for all students is paid by the state. Students are eligible to earn the National Career Readiness Certificate.

      Workforce Developers

      Partnering for a stronger workforce

      Business executives and economic development consultants work to identify the best locations for expansion and relocation. The availability of skilled labor is a critical factor in making these decisions.

      A growing number of states, communities, and organizations are choosing WorkKeys and the National Career Readiness Certificate as the foundation for career readiness initiatives that energize their economic development and workforce strategies.

      Together WorkKeys and the NCRC help communities and economic developers:

      • Encourage businesses to stay in the community
      • Increase the tax base through more profitable business partners
      • Decrease unemployment rates
      • Improve the quality of life for community residents
      • Provide focused education and training to meet both individual and organization goals

      Learn more about the NCRC

      Industry Associations

      ACT partners with associations and advocacy organizations representing the needs of industry sectors to develop national skills credentialing systems.

      Using WorkKeys and the National Career Readiness Certificate as a foundation, industries can build credentialing systems, such as the Manufacturing Skills Certification System, that promote career pathways. After this, ACT research tools and analytic expertise can help inform ongoing skills development. This allows individuals to match their career development with evolving workplace needs.

      The Manufacturing Institute

      The National Career Readiness Certificate is the world-class market leader in ensuring young adults are equipped with the basic academic skills necessary to pursue additional education, training, and employment in the manufacturing industry. The partnership between the NAM and ACT is critically important to begin addressing the workforce crisis.

      Emily Stover DeRocco, former president of The Manufacturing Institute and senior vice president of the National Association of Manufacturers.

      The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER)

      The WorkKeys assessments ACT has built and refined over almost 20 years of solid research in the workplace will help indicate that our trainees are ready and able to succeed. The assessments and the National Career Readiness Certificate provide a consistent measure of skill levels and help identify specific training needs.

      —Don Whyte, NCCER president

      The Center for Energy Workforce Development

      It is imperative that we understand what it will take to get potential candidates properly trained and ready to move into entry-level positions as quickly as possible. ACT’s workforce development solutions, including WorkKeys assessments and the National Career Readiness Certificate, as well as their international reputation as a data-driven assessment firm, makes them an ideal partner for CEWD as we begin the process of building tomorrow’s energy workforce.
