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. 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 (unfunded). The ACT provides scores on the four tests. 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.
