*The ACT is no longer given to students free of charge as part of State of Michigan testing or MME. The SAT has replaced the ACT section of the MME beginning with the 2015-16 school year*
The ACT is one of America's most widely accepted college entrance exams. It assesses high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work.
The multiple-choice tests cover four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science.
The Writing Test, which is optional, measures skills in planning and writing a short essay.
Students wishing to take the ACT will need to register for the ACT. The ACT test is given at various high schools throughout the local area on designated national test dates.
Students with either a 504 Plan or an IEP should talk to their counselor before registering themselves online, as they may qualify to take the ACT with accommodations through ACT's special testing program.
