In this Tuesday, April 1, 2014 photo, Joe Moore, right, and his mother Donna talk about the upcoming ACT Assessment test at their home in Springfield, Ill. Donna, a school board member in Springfield’s High School district and a mother of 7 children, ages 24 to 9, says her own children have largely viewed the state-paid ACT tests as just a practice before taking the test several more times. As Illinois schools shift to a new set of state mandated exams next year, the state board of education plans to keep asking schools to give the ACT, using the test to gauge college readiness for high school juniors. But for the first time in more than a decade, the State Board of Education may only provide the test to low-income students for free next year, requiring more well-off families to shoulder the cost of the five-subject, $52.50 exam.

Events at home occupy the thoughts of three Northwest College students more than usual these days.
