ACT EXPLORE Test - Duke Tip

Presentation of EXPLORER recognition

Younger children with exceptional academic abilities also need motivation and support. In addition to honoring our 7th Grade Talent Search participants, we are pleased to recognize participants in our 4th-6th Grade Talent Search, as well.  These students recently took EXPLORE, an exam developed by ACT as an assessment for 8th graders.  Duke TIP offers the EXPLORE testing experience to students enrolled in this younger talent search as a means of evaluating, and perhaps showcasing, their academic abilities.

The students we are honoring today scored in the 99th percentile or higher on the composite section of the ACT EXPLORE test.   That’s better than most all eighth graders!  Of the 7,708 4th, 5th or 6th graders who took the EXPLORE test this year, only 194 qualified for this recognition.
