The ACT is America's most widely accepted college entrance exam. It assesses high
school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level
work. The multiple-choice tests cover four skill areas: English, Mathematics, Reading,
and Science. The Writing Test, which is optional, measures skill in planning and
writing a short essay.
