The sample ACT test questions include a passage and/or a test item from each of the four ACT tests in English, reading, mathematics, and science. Students who score at or above the College Readiness Benchmark on a test (18 in English, 21 in reading, 22 in mathematics and 24 in science) will be able to correctly answer the item for that test.
On August 12, Cynthia Schmeiser, president and chief operating officer of ACT's Education Division, held a telephone news conference to discuss this year's score report. Listen to Dr. Schmeiser's remarks (MP3; 15.7MB) and reporters' questions and answers (MP3; 30.5MB).
