New Options for the ACT Test Offer Students More Choices

ACT announced new options coming to the ACT® test starting with the September 2020 national test date. Learn from ACT experts as they explain the new options, why ACT is offering them, and how these options give students more choices, a better experience, and greater confidence that their ACT test scores reflect their overall academic achievement and potential.

In this webinar, we talk about:
  • ACT Section Retesting—Once students take a full ACT test, they can choose to retake the full test again or retake one or more single-section subject tests to improve their scores. Learn how to apply section retesting scores in your decision-making process.
  • ACT Superscoring—ACT will calculate superscores for all students. Learn what colleges can expect to receive with a superscore submission.
  • Faster Results with Online Testing—Students who choose to take the ACT online will receive their scores in as few as two business days. Learn how faster results will help you with your timelines.
