Students may register for one of two Test Options: The

ACT (No Writing), which includes the four required multiple-choice

Tests, or the ACT plus Writing, which also includes a

30-minute Writing Test. The optional ACT Writing Test

Complements the ACT English Test. The combined results

from both tests provide information about your

Understanding of the conventions of standard written

English and your ability to produce a direct sample of your

writing. Taking the ACT plus Writing will provide you with

Two additional scores: a Writing sub score and a Combined

English/Writing score. Taking the ACT Writing Test does not

affect your subject area scores or your Composite score.

Not all colleges require or recommend taking the ACT

Writing Test.
