Coming Soon - Score At The Top 

The ACT has been gradually changing, and will continue to do so in the fall ― with some changes mimicking those planned for the SAT:

  • 1 Reading passage will likely include two reading selections – just like the SAT
  • Incorporation of a few more probability & statistics questions
  • Additional scores ― similar to the redesigned SAT:
    • STEM score
    • Career Readiness Indicator
    • English Language Arts score
    • Text Complexity indicator
    • Reporting categories consistent with college & career readiness language
  • Enhanced Writing Test based on the newly developed ACT writing competency framework that provides scores in four domains (starting Sept 2015 ― and more closely aligned to the redesigned SAT):
    • Ideas and analysis
    • Development and support
    • Organization
    • Language use

We’ve been closely following the ACT changes, some of which have already happened ― and are already incorporating them in our private test prep tutoring and small group workshops.
