Illinois Switches From ACT, Will Give Students SAT Instead

Chicago (AP) — The state of Illinois will stop giving the ACT college entrance exam and instead has contracted to give high school juniors the rival SAT, according to state records. The company that offers the ACT has filed a protest with the state seeking to cancel Illinois’ new contract with the College Board, which offers the SAT, the Chicago Tribune reported. The three-year contract is worth $14.3 million, state records show. Illinois has given the ACT for free to 11th graders for 15 years.
