QuotEd ACT Science

QuotEd ACT Science contains questions and definitions of key Science terms to prepare users to be successful on the ACT and other high-stakes Science assessments. QuotEd ACT Science has four main components. First, the Question of the Day asks users a new Science-based question each day. The questions are multiple-choice and typically include a short reading passage and an accompanying graphic. Users are given two opportunities to answer the question successfully before they are given the answer. The second component is the Science Strategies section, which provides information about the ACT Science test to users. The third component is…

QuotEd ACT Science contains questions and definitions of key Science terms to prepare users to be successful on the ACT and other high-stakes Science assessments. QuotEd ACT Science has four main components. First, the Question of the Day asks users a new Science-based question each day. The questions are multiple-choice and typically include a short reading passage and an accompanying graphic. Users are given two opportunities to answer the question successfully before they are given the answer. The second component is the Science Strategies section, which provides information about the ACT Science test to users. The third component is the Science Glossary section, which contains an alphabetical index of terms and their definitions, categorized by different Science disciplines (e.g., Biology, Chemistry, and Physics). Lastly is the Jump to Question component. In this section, users can answer questions about a range of scientific topics to better prepare them for the ACT.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Science teachers can use the Question of the Day as a bell-ringer activity to start class. By answering these questions and discussing the process they used in order to correctly answer them, Science teachers can help prepare their students for high-stakes assessments.
  2. Teachers can have their students define key Science terms using the glossary.
  3.  Teachers can assign students a specific question to answer from the Jump to Question component of this app, and students can present to their classmates how they answered the question and provide a rationale for why their answer is correct.
