Test Descriptions

Get detailed information about each test section and what is covered.

The ACT measures the knowledge, understanding, and skills that you have acquired throughout your education.

The test contains multiple-choice tests in four areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. Each of these tests contains questions that offer either four or five answer choices from which you are to choose the correct, or best, answer. 

If you register for the optional ACT with writing, you will take the writing test after the four multiple-choice tests.
