    @roycroftmom This is totally different from the run of the mill everyday test situation. Hopefully your child will never have someone imply they cheated and have to feel the pressure. The timing was inexcusable. My daughter did not cheat and goes to an elite university so I know she has the ability but ACT’s tactics are not acceptable. The information we sent proved our case, so she didn’t have to go through taking the test. Easy for you who has not been in the situation. Armchair quarterbacks always win.

    @8056ah - could be incorrect but thought that for these retakes due to testing irregularities it has to be in a separate room with a special proctor. ACT sets it up. I don't think they count any retake done during a regular administration of the test. Hopefully someone will confirm or correct that.

    I agree the timing was inexcusable. Hopefully your daughter will sail through the high stakes high pressure finals at her elite university as well.

    Did your child have both identical responses as well as inconsistency’s in test scores? Would love to hear what you submitted to prove innocence @JBStillFlying

    ^@8056ah my D didn't get her scores flagged, and we hadn't heard of this happening with such frequency at the time that she sat the exam. She didn't know anyone this had happened to, unlike my son two years later who actually DID know of a few kids (but he himself took the SAT and only one time, thus by-passing any of this "irregularity" stuff). It never occurred to us a standardized test result could turn into such a nightmare. My youngest will be testing in a year or so and I'm very concerned.

    Cfrn2001 I had no idea how much this site would explode whdn I started it. Like you and many others, I was fighting to defend defend the honor of my daughter, who worked so hard. Unfortunately, sll mh attempts failed. Although my daughter was not effected, since she had completed for first semester at university, she still lives with the accusations of being called a cheater.

    Personally, I believe a class action lawsuit is the only hope to take action against the ACT. I wrote to all my state representative's and Washington, however 1 voice is not enough to get the attention needed to address this growing problem.

    Don't give up!

    All my best,
