The ACT® English test is a 75 question test that measures the student’s understanding of  standard English covering items such as punctuation, usage, and sentence structure. The test also covers the production of writing to include topic development, organization and cohesion. Knowledge of language – word choice ans style – is also measured.

The test consists of five essays or passages of which there is a sequence of multiple choice questions about the text.  The test questions are numbered and referenced to the text for the questions.  The test is timed at 45 minutes.

The ACT® mathematics test is a 60 question exam which is designed to assess the math skills students have that were typically acquired of students at the beginning of the 12th grade/senior year.

The test uses multiple choice-questions that require reasoning skills to solve practical problems in math. Most questions are self-contained. Some questions may consist of several questions referring to a single topic.

The materials covered are considered to be the knowledge needed to be successful in entry level colllege math courses. The math test is scored with nine reports – one overall test score for the math section and eight others baed on specific math knowledge skills.

Calculators may be used on the exam, however, you should refer to the ACT® website for specific rules.

Areas covered in the exam are:

  • Preparing for higher math
  • Number and Quantity
  • Algebra
  • Functions
  • Geometry
  • Stastics and Probability
  • Integrating Essentila Skills
  • Modeling

The test is timed at 60 minutes.

The ACT science test is a 40-question test that measures the interpretation, analysis, evaluation, reasoning, and problem-solving skills required in the natural sciences.

The test presents several sets of scientific information, followed by multiple-choice test questions. The scientific information is conveyed in one of three different formats: data representation (graphs, tables, and other schematic forms), research summaries (descriptions of several related experiments), or conflicting viewpoints (expressions of several related hypotheses or views that are inconsistent with one another).

The test is timed at 35 minutes.

The ACT® is short for the orgiinal name American College Testing.  The test is a college readiness assessment for high school achievement and college admissions in the United States and a growing list of other countries. It was first administered in November 1959 as a competitor to the College Board’s Scholastic Aptitude Test, now the SAT®.

Today the ACT® is administred to over 2.1 million students in all 50 states and other countries. The ACT® is accepted by all four-year US colleges and universities.

The ACT® is divided into four sections (English, Math, Reading, and Science. There is an option for a Writing Test. The test takes around three hours to complete and extra 40 minutes if you do the optional writing test. However, when breaks are factored in, individuals can expect a total running time of four and a half hours. The sections are:

  • English – 75 questions and 45 minutes
  • Math – 60 questions and 60 minutes
  • Reading – 40 questions and 35 minutes
  • Science – 40 questions and 35 minutes
  • Writing (optional) is 40 minutes


The reading section of the ACT® is 40 questions and measures the students reading comprehension. The test asks the taker to derive meaning from several texts by using reasoning and implied meaning skills.

The test is timed at 35 minutes.

The test has four sections, three contain a long prose passage and one contains two sorter passages. The test is designed to asses the knowledge needed to be successful in a first year college curricula.

The Quantitative section tests an individual’s mathematical ability. The quantitative section is timed at 80 minutes.

Most math questions will be multiple choice, but some — called grid-ins — ask you to come up with the answer rather than select the answer.

The Math Test is divided into two portions:

  • Math Test – Calculator and
  • Math Test – No Calculator

Some parts of the test include several questions about a single scenario.

The Math Test will focus in depth on the three areas of math that play the biggest role in a wide range of college majors and careers:

  • Algebra which focuses on the mastery of linear equations and systems.
  • Problem Solving and Data Analysis which is about being quantitatively literate.
  • Advanced Math which features questions that require the manipulation of complex equations.
  • Geometry and trigonometry most relevant to college and career readiness.
We have had one result back from the SAT and that was a good result:
– Math 640
– Reading 530
– Writing 640
– Essay 10
