The PLAN test is offered to high school sophomores (and some freshmen) as a sort of practice for the ACT exam taken during their junior and senior year. The scores also give an indication of where the student’s test-taking skills before taking the ACT.
The highest sophomore score was posted by Kane Anderson ’15, who ended up in the 99th percentile of test takers. This means that Anderson scored better than 99% of students who took the test. Freshman cadet Nishan Khanal ’16 finished in the 98th percentile and Wade Lueckenotte ’15 tested better than 92% of PLAN students.
Anderson’s best performance came on the English and Math sections of the test, scoring in the 98th percentile. Khanal led the way in Math among cadets, scoring in the 99th percentile.
Anderson’s test-taking skills are not limited to the PLAN exam. He also posted the best score on the PSAT for the Class of 2015 in October. In addition to placing higher than 99% of students who took the PLAN, his overall score on the PSAT was better than 89 percent of students who took the test. Anderson also posted a very impressive score on the Writing portion of that exam, scoring in the 99th percentile of students who completed that section.
Other notable performances include Guangning Wei ’15, who scored in the 96th percentile of math students, and Sergio Salas ’15 testing in the 97th percentile for the reading section.
