American College Testing

The ACT college readiness assessment is a curriculum- and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students' academic for college.

The ACT is the capstone of the College and Career Readiness System. The test uses the same score scale as ACT Explore and ACT Plan, making the system an effective tool to monitor academic progress and student growth.

The ACT (No Writing) consists of four multiple-choice tests in English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science. The ACT Plus Writing includes the four multiple-choice tests and an additional Writing Test.

The ACT Writing Test is a 30-minute essay test that measures your writing skills - specifically those writing skills emphasized in high school English classes and in entry-level college composition courses. The test consists of one writing prompt that will define an issue and describe two points of view on that issue. The examinee will then have 30 minutes to respond to a question about the issue. See for more information about the Writing Test.

The ACT is given frequently throughout the year to allow students to have an equal opportunity to take this exam.  Through the Testing Center, incoming freshmen can take the ACT Residual given twice a month.
