According to ACT, Inc., the ACT is designed to measure student achievement, not IQ, in English, math, reading, science, and writing. It assesses students’ educational development and ability to complete college level work. Much like the SAT, the ACT also measures how good a student is at taking standardized tests.
As of 2011, roughly 50% of American college-bound seniors took the ACT. Historically, it has been taken, and accepted, more in the middle of America than the SAT which has been dominant on the coasts. These days, any college that wants SAT scores will also take ACT scores and vice versa. Preference should be decided by your student’s particular strengths, some kids do better on one than the other. Please ask us if the ACT might be right for your son or daughter.
