The ACT is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions in the United States.

Historically, the ACT consisted of four tests: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science Reasoning. In February 2005, an optional Writing test was added to the ACT. The main four tests are scored individually on a scale of 1-36, and a Composite score is provided which is the whole number average of the four scores.
