ACT research and solutions provide valuable information and data to educators and institutions—for increasing not only postsecondary access, but also the likelihood of success through degree completion. Through research, assessments, and surveys, postsecondary institutions have the ability to make effective data-driven decisions that directly impact increased postsecondary access to an institution. Whether through impactful outreach and access initiatives or through informed persistence, retention, and success programs, ACT can be of great value in ensuring a more informed and data-rich process.
