The Writing Section

If you decide to take the full ACT, including writing, you will complete the writing section after the four multiple-choice sections. The writing section is a 40-minute essay test that evaluates your writing skills, focusing on concepts taught in high school English classes and entry-level college composition courses.

During the writing section, you will encounter a complex issue and be presented with three different perspectives on that issue. Your task is to develop your own perspective and construct an essay that analyzes the relationship between your viewpoint and one or more of the provided perspectives. It is vital to remember that the viewpoint you choose will not affect your grade; rather, your essay will be graded based on the following domains:

  1. Ideas and Analysis: This domain assesses your ability to generate productive ideas and engage critically with multiple perspectives on the given issue.
  2. Development and Support: Your performance in this domain reflects your capability to discuss ideas, provide reasoning, and strengthen your argument with examples.
  3. Organization: Scores in this domain measure your skill in organizing ideas coherently and purposefully, demonstrating a clear relationship between concepts.
  4. Language Use and Conventions: This domain evaluates your command of written language, including grammar, syntax, word usage, mechanics, and ability to adapt your writing style to communicate effectively.

Each domain is scored individually, and the average of the four domains contributes to your overall subject-level writing score, ranging from 2 to 12.

Accommodations for the ACT

ACT is committed to providing appropriate accommodations for test-takers with special needs or disabilities. To request accommodations, you must work with a school official who can help you through the process. Here are the key steps to follow:

  1. Register for the test: Log into your MyACT account and link a valid high school to your profile before registering. This allows ACT to communicate your registration to the associated school official.
  2. Confirm accommodations: During the registration process, indicate that you need accommodations. If you did not select this option, contact ACT as soon as possible to update your registration.
  3. Submit your request: After registration, you will receive an email that must be forwarded to your school official. Additionally, complete the Consent to Release Information to ACT form and provide it to your school official. Your school official must submit your accommodations request in TAA (Test Accessibility and Accommodations) before the late registration deadline.
  4. Review the decision notification: Your school official will receive the decision notification. If your request is denied, review the notification with your school official and consider submitting an appeal before the late registration deadline.
  5. Make arrangements for special testing: If approved for special testing accommodations, work with your school official to schedule your test within the special testing window. In most cases, students approved for special testing will take the exam at their own school. If your school cannot administer the test, contact ACT promptly for further assistance.
  6. Print your admission ticket: Remember to upload your photo if you have not done so already, and review your admission ticket to ensure that your accommodations are correctly indicated. Note that your testing location might be changed to accommodate your specific needs.
