ACT Test Dates:

The ACT is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions in the United States produced by ACT, Inc. The required portion of the ACT is divided into four multiple choice subject tests: English; Mathematics; Reading; and Science Reasoning. Subject test scores range from 1 to 36. The English, mathematics, and reading tests also have subscores ranging from 1 to 18. (The subject score is not the sum of the subscores.) The “composite score” is the average of all four tests. In addition, students taking the writing test receive a writing score ranging from 2 to 12, a “combined English/writing score” ranging from 1 to 36 (based on the writing score and English score), and one to four comments on the essay from the essay scorers. The writing score does not affect the composite score.Most Juniors take the ACT test two times. Fees are paid by D211 and registration is completed by HEHS. In addition, ACT exams are offered nationally six times a year with HEHS being one of the host sights for the exam. Registration and payment is required at ACT.ORG or by mailing an application by the deadline dates. Online registration is preferred. (ACT website)
