    American College Testing Program (ACT)
    Some colleges require the American College Testing Program as part of their admissions or placement procedures. The ACT is made up of four tests, each averaging about 45 minutes. Test items are designed to measure ability to perform intellectual tasks that college students typically perform. The tests are concerned with intellectual skills and abilities, not with specific and detailed content.
    The English examination is primarily a test of appropriate and effective written expression, concerned with elements of diction, style, phraseology, form and organization; other items are related to the mechanics of writing.
    The Mathematics test focuses on mathematical reasoning, skills and concepts. The Social Studies and Natural Sciences tests are designed to measure the ability to reason and solve problems. They also include items that test knowledge of information sources and the capacity for special study. A total score of these four tests provides an estimate of ability to succeed academically in college. The writing exam is optional, but recommended. 
    Most colleges and scholarship agencies participating in the ACT program recommend students take the test during their junior year, or early in the senior year. To register or for more information, visit the ACT website.
