Purpose Purpose: “Contains five curriculum-based tests (four multiple-choice tests and an optional writing test) that measure academic achievement in English/writing, mathematics, reading, and science as well as noncognitive components (high school course/grade information, ACT interest inventory, and the student profile section). Results of the cognitive section are used by high schools and post-secondary institutions to understand what students are likely to know and ready to learn next in preparation for, and the transition to, post-secondary education. Results from the ACT are used in admissions, scholarship determination, academic advising, course placement, and career counseling.”
Publication Date 1959–2016.
