From ACT:  HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEWS?

To help your students reach their maximum potential for college and career readiness, we are enhancing the ACT® test with options that keep students’ needs in mind.

Beginning with the September 2020 national ACT test date, students will have more options when taking the ACT:

  • ACT Section Retest—Students who have already completed a full ACT test can choose to retake one or more sections (English, math, reading, science, or writing) without having to retake the entire test.

  • Superscore reporting—To support the growing trend of students taking the ACT test multiple times, score reports will now include a calculated ACT Superscore, along with an ACT Composite score.

  • Faster results with online testing—Students will be able to choose to take the ACT online at a test center on national ACT test dates and get their multiple-choice test results as early as two business days after taking the test.
