Kendall Students: What's New with the ACT this Fall?

Sep 3, 2020 | Kendall

Many colleges require students to take either the SAT or ACT. Starting in September 2020, the ACT will implement new standards and rules:


- new sectional retesting, 

- online testing, 

- the ability to superscore. 


Let’s take a look at how each of these changes impact you. “Sectional retesting” means that you will be able to focus on individual test sections to increase your composite score. For example, a student who struggled on the math section can focus on improving their math score during their next attempt, rather than repeating (and studying for) every section. 


Also starting in September 2020, the ACT test will be available online. The benefits of the new online testing include students being able to take the test in the comfort of their own home and results will be available within two days. 


Finally, the ACT will be “superscored” which means that the best scores from each subject across multiple tests will be compiled into an overall score. 


This is great news! These changes allow you to target specific skills needed to improve your score - and have your hard work reflected in your final score.


We can help you take advantage of these changes. At Mathnasium of Kendall, we give our ACT Math Prep students both the skills and confidence needed to be successful.
