Starting in September 2020, the ACT test will offer new options for students that are designed to save them valuable time set aside for college planning. Students might be wondering what these enhancements will look like, what to expect, and how these enhancements will affect first-time testing or retesting on the ACT.
Learn from the experts behind these enhancements as they explain why ACT is offering them and how they give students more choices, a better experience, and greater confidence that their scores will reflect their overall academic achievement and potential.
We’ll cover the new options at length:
ACT Section Retesting—Take a full ACT test once, then choose to retake the full test or retake one or more single-section subject tests (English, reading, math, science, and/or writing) to improve the ACT test scores. Learn how section retesting allows for a greater level of focus while more closely aligning to typical college exams.
ACT Superscoring—ACT will calculate superscores—average scores from multiple test attempts—for all retests on the ACT score report. Learn how this shows proficiency in the subject area and how colleges will use the ACT Superscore in admissions decisions.
Faster Results with Online Testing—Students can choose to take the ACT online to receive ACT test scores in as few as two business days. Learn how faster results gain critical time in the decision-making process. (Students can also choose to take the test on paper and receive results in 2-8 weeks.)
