American College Test (ACT)
The American College Test is a multiple-choice battery of tests measuring skills in English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. The ACT packet, available in the Student office, includes the registration form, interest inventory, and student profile. The combined results of the test and interest inventory can be used to plan your career or choose a major. The test results are used for admissions, for placement in English and math courses, and for awarding scholarships. Each section of the ACT is related on a scale of 1 to 36. The subscores are averaged to create a composite.
Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT I)
The Scholastic Aptitude Test is a multiple-choice battery of tests measuring ability in English and mathematics. Verbal and math scores are given on a range from 200 to 800. A “total” score is calculated by adding the English and math scores.
These are tests administered by College Board that measure achievement in a specific subject area such as English, foreign language, science, or math. Some highly selective universities may require these tests. There is no need to take these unless the university you plan to attend requires it for admission or placement. Some schools will accept the ACT in place of the SAT II.
