The ACT test is a curriculum- and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students' academic readiness for college.

  • The ACT motivates students to perform to their best ability and often results in increased college enrollment, especially for underrepresented students.
  • Test scores reflect what students have learned throughout high school and provide colleges and universities with excellent information for recruiting, advising, placement, and retention.
  • To support college and career planning, the ACT career exploration component helps students identify personally relevant career options.

The ACT test measures what students have learned in their courses and measures their skills in English, math, science and reading. The ACT helps students:

  • Understand what they need to learn next so they can build rigorous high school course plans.
  • Identify career areas that align with their interests.
  • Increase the likelihood that they will consider pursuing a college education.
