December is the most wonderful time of the year for so many reasons: Christmas, winter break, snowball fights, and more. December also marks the last ACT test of the year, and the best test for high school Juniors to take.
The Test Information Release (TIR) is a digital copy of the multiple-choice test questions, your answers, a copy of your answer document, the answer key, and the conversion table used in determining your ACT scores.
