How do students sign up to take the ACT?
11th Graders Only:
How are the tests scored?
Scores range from 1 (low) to 36 (high) for each of the four tests and the Composite. The Composite score is the average of the four test scores, rounded to the nearest whole number.
We base ACT scores on the number of questions answered correctly. We do not deduct any points for wrong answers. Then we convert the raw scores to scale scores. Scale scores have the same meaning for all versions of the tests.
Three of the four tests also have subscores, which range from 1 (low) to 18 (high).
There is no direct, mathematical relationship between subscores and test score. Also, the test scores in English, mathematics, and reading do not represent the sum of the subscores in those areas.
