ACT assessment is a three-hour college entrance exam composed of four tests in academic areas (English usage, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning). Scores are reported on a scale of 1-36 for each academic area, as well as a composite score that averages the four tests. As well as using the ACT composite score as part of the admissions process, some colleges may award college course credit for ACT individual tests in the academic areas.
