|45 standard multiple-choice
13 student-produced response

ACT Test Format
The ACT consists of four multiple- choice tests: English, mathematics, reading, and science. The ACT with writing includes the four multiple-choice tests and a writing test. A student’s composite ACT score is the average of the student’s scaled scores for the four multiple-choice test sections. Example: If a student scored a 24 English, 28 Math, 26 Reading, and 23 Science, his composite ACT score would be (24 + 28 + 26 + 23)/4 = 25.25, which is rounded down to a 25.
Scoring for the Writing Test
- Two readers read and score each student’s writing test essay. Essays are scored holistically (i.e., based on the overall impression your essay makes).
- Each reader gives the essay a score ranging between a 1 and a 6, with 6 being the highest possible score. The two scores are added together to get a student’s Writing sub-score, which can range between a 2 and a 12, with 12 being the highest possible score. If the two readers’ scores differ by more than one point, a third reader will be called in to resolve the disagreement.
- A student’s English score and Writing sub-score are scaled to create a student’s Combined English/Writing score. The English score accounts for 2/3 of the Combined score while the Writing score accounts for the remaining 1/3. A student’s Combined English/Writing score will range between a 1 and a 36, with 36 being the highest possible score.
- Neither the Writing sub-score nor the Combined English/Writing score affects a student’s composite ACT score. Instead, they serve as stand-alone scores that appear on a student’s score report.
