Registration Tips

If you’re looking for information on how to register your child for the ACT, here are some nuts and bolts about the process:

How to Get Your ACT Score Report

ACT scores are generally available for online viewing on your ACT web account within 2 weeks after your testing date.

Official score reports are released by postal mail within 3-8 weeks after each test date; however ACT  (With Writing) score reports are only released after the writing score is available, within 5-8 weeks after the test date.

Online score release dates for 2015/16 testing dates are available here.

Ivy League Tutoring strongly recommends that you order and pay for a Test Information Release (TIR) at the time of registration in order to receive a copy of the test booklet with a list of your child’s answers and the answer key. If your child took the writing test, you will also receive a copy of the writing prompt, scoring rubric and scores assigned. This service will provide your child with the opportunity to review the questions they missed (with a tutor or independently) to improve upon their score.

What Is the ACT Composite Score?

The score which colleges care the most about is the ACT composite score, which ranges from 1-36. The composite score is calculated by adding the four sub-test scores for English, Mathematics, Reading and Science (each on a scale of 1-36) and dividing by four to get the average.

Superscoring

Historically, college admission offices have not superscored the ACT and have only used a student’s single highest composite score from a single test date. However, that is beginning to change as growing numbers of students are taking the ACT multiple times, and some colleges now will superscore the ACT.

Superscoring is when a college takes the highest subtest scores from various test dates to a get a new higher “superscore,” also known as the “combined highest composite” score. This scoring system allows for the fact that students do not always perform at their best on any one given test date. In addition, this scoring approach is already standard procedure in SAT scoring.

Students should refer to individual college admission websites to determine each college’s policy towards ACT scoring. If information about superscoring is not posted on the college’s website, you can call the admissions office to inquire about the policy.

Thank you so much for being the best teacher I have ever had. You are a very nice person and taught me many things I had missed in previous years. Your giving me time to figure things out on my own gave me more confidence and made me believe in myself.
