MPS is no longer offering the PLAN test to 10th grade students. ACT is phasing out the PLAN and introducing an Aspire test. Stay tuned for details.


The PLAN was a "pre-ACT" test that predicts success on the ACT Assessment. It also contained a career interest inventory. 

Reasons to take the PLAN:

·        Taking PLAN is a great way to get familiar with the format of the ACT and prepare for the ACT

·        Teachers and counselors use PLAN results to help you choose the right high school courses to prepare you for college

·        PLAN identifies your academic strengths and weaknesses so you’ll know if you’ve developed the skills and knowledge you’ll need to succeed in college

·        PLAN connects you with information you’ll need to start your college search.

·        PLAN helps you learn about careers that match your interests.  Learning about the world of work now will help you choose your college major later.
