How transferrable are the Explore scores to the actual ACT? DD16 took the Explore last year at school. She did well, does this mean she'll do as well on the ACT?

I haven't read all of it, but it may answer your question better than I could.
Based on comments I've read online in forums like this one, and ds's scores on the EXPLORE one year and the ACT a year later, I think a 25 on the former is roughly equivalent to a 25 on the latter. Ds stopped taking the EXPLORE when he was at or near the ceiling (25) in all four areas, and got three 27's and a 20 on the ACT.
