ACT

The ACT test 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 skill in planning and writing a short essay.

The ACT is currently administered on paper in the domestic sites and administered online in the international sites. Current COVID-19 situation may impact the administration of ACT. Please check the ACT website for the most up-to-date announcements and resources.

Student Participation

The ACT is administered in select DODEA high schools. Students and their parents may self-register for their selected ACT exams.
