The Explore test is the first of three in the EPAS system. Students take the Explore test as a Freshman, the Plan as a Sophomore and the ACT as a Junior. The ACT is a strong indicator of college readiness skills and is used by the State of Michigan and most universities to evaluate a student's readiness for college and plays a strong role in the admissions process. At Kensington Woods, students take the Explore and the Plan as Freshmen and Sophomores not only to practice test taking but also to evaluate their skill set to allow for more growth.
