What is Test Information Release?

If you order and pay for a Test Information Release (TIR) during the registration process and test at a national test center on a national test date that offers this service, you will receive a copy of the multiple-choice test questions used to determine your score, a list of your answers, and the answer key. If you took the writing test, you will also receive a copy of the writing prompt, the scoring rubric, and the scores assigned to your essay. Information about ordering a photocopy of your answer document (including your essay if you took the writing test) for an additional fee will be included with your materials.

Ordering by Mail

You can order a Test Information Release (TIR) when you register, or during the six-month period after your test date. This service is not offered on any other test dates or for any non-national administrations (e.g., International, State or District, Special).

If you would like to order a Test Information Release after your test date, you should use the Test Information Release Order Form (PDF). Applicable dates, postmark deadlines and fees may also be found on the order form.

If for any reason we have to replace the test version scheduled for use at your test center or reschedule the administration, this offer becomes void, and we will refund your fee for this service. If you order and pay for this service when you register and test on an ineligible test date, we will automatically refund this fee.

Your request must be postmarked no later than six months after the test date.
Materials are normally mailed about four weeks after you receive your score report. You cannot expect to receive them before the registration deadline or in time to study for the next test date.

All orders received after score reports are first issued will be mailed three to five weeks after receipt at ACT.
