What is the ACT Test?

The ACT is a national college admissions examination made up of subject area tests in English, mathematics, reading and science.  The ACT “with writing,” includes the same four subject areas plus a 40-minute writing test.

The ACT showed up in the United States during the late 1950’s. The ACT organization is based in Iowa and writes the ACT Assessment and other tests.  ACT originally meant “American College Testing,” but since 1996 the acronym officially means nothing.  According to the ACT website, this is because of “ACT’s diverse and evolving roles.”  The ACT company is no longer a strictly American company and no longer offers only college test preparation, but also deals with test preparation and learning, in general.

Most U.S. colleges now require both the ACT and the SAT tests as part of the college application and acceptance process.
