Lost and found: ACT exams

Tests taken at Mariner found last week
Aug 28, 2019

Last week, The Beacon reported that 40 ACT exams taken at Mariner High School in June had been lost in transit somewhere between Mariner and Iowa, where the ACT’s headquarters is located.

Word came out two weeks ago that the exams had been lost when students who took the test received emails from the ACT saying that the tests went missing with FedEx and that they would be allowed to take a new exam, for free, in September.

Brad Greenfield, whose daughter took the exam in June, told The Beacon that they had reached out to ACT multiple times after they still hadn’t received her scores, before finally being told that the exams were lost.

Well, luckily, those tests taken in June were found last week, per Edward Colby of ACT. The package containing the exams had a tracking number, but was missing for nearly three months.

“The missing answer documents have been found and are now in the process of being scored,” Colby said in an email last Friday. “FedEx found the missing package at one of its facilities earlier this week and immediately sent it back to us. So, this situation has been resolved.”
