Enhanced ACT Test Score Reports 

June 29, 2016

Part 4: The new 2016-2017 ACT® test score reports

Over the past four weeks, we’ve described enhancements to the ACT test score reports that, starting with our September 10, 2016 test date, will allow students and educators to better navigate results and gain more meaningful insights.  These updates include:

  • A comprehensive set of reporting categories will replace subject test subscores for each subject area of the test
  • ACT Readiness Ranges will make it easier for the student to understand which academic areas require additional assistance   
  • A graphical design of paper score reports, using easily understood visual elements, color, and indicators to make insights easier to understand
  • ACT STEM College Readiness Benchmark, which highlights the probability of success in STEM college courses
  • The Interest-Major Fit level score, an indication of whether students’ interests match their collegiate pursuits
  • Career Connector, which summarizes students’ work-relevant interests and indicates possible career possibilities

 

Additionally, as announced on June 28, 2016, ACT will report the optional writing score on a 2–12 score range beginning with the September 2016 test date.

The 2016-2017 sample ACT score reports are now available:

ACT Student Score Report 2016-2017 (PDF, 2 pages - designed to print on 11 x 17 paper) 
ACT High School Score Report 2016-2017 (PDF, 2 pages) 
ACT College Score Report 2016-2017 (PDF, 2 pages)

These updates to the score reports reflect ACT’s focus on innovative, user-centered reporting and our commitment to empowering individuals with usable, intuitive college and career readiness insights. The changes resulted from input from thousands of students, parents, and educators.


NEW ENHANCEMENTS TO THE WRITING PORTION OF THE ACT

AS OF SEPTEMBER 1, 2016 

Changes to the ACT Writing Test Score Range Starting September 2016

June 28, 2016

 

Beginning with the September 2016 national test date, ACT no longer will report the writing test score on a 1–36 scale. We will instead report the writing score on a 2–12 score range, with 12 being the highest possible score. The new reported score will be the average of the four 2-to-12 domain scores on the essay. The contents of the writing test itself, an optional section of the overall ACT test, will remain unchanged.

This adjustment follows feedback we’ve received from leaders in education, as well as students and parents, since changing the score scale in 2015 to a 1–36 scale to be consistent with the multiple-choice ACT test scores. The change caused confusion among some test takers, who attempted to compare their writing score to their multiple-choice scores. Each ACT subject test measures different skills, and many students earn higher scores on some tests than on others.

The writing test itself, which was revised last year, will remain unchanged. The essays will still be scored using the same rubric, on four domains (ideas and analysis, development and support, organization, and language use and conventions) by two independent readers. Scores on the four individual domains on the ACT writing test will continue to be reported on a 2-to-12 range as they are now.

Although the writing test score was reported on a 2-12 range prior to September 2015, we are NOT reverting back to the same 2-12 range. The former writing test was designed differently than the current writing test.  The current writing test asks students to analyze and evaluate multiple perspectives and provides more specific actionable information about student ability by reporting directly on domains.
