|American College Testing Assessment Program (ACT)
The ACT Assessment test is an admissions requirement at some colleges. The instrument consists of a battery of four academic tests that measure academic development in English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science Reasoning. The optional ACT Plus writing test is not available at DANTES test sites during testing year 2008-2009. If a college or program requires a writing assessment, it is recommended taking the ACT Plus Writing test at a National Test Center on a national test date. The ACT provides scores on the four tests, a composite score, and seven sub-scores which provide more detailed information concerning an individual's academic development. Calculators are permitted but not required. DANTES funds one administration at a DANTES Test Center, for eligible military service members, on either the ACT Assessment or the SAT I. For additional information, see your Education Counselors.
