Are you aware of the new changes to the new ACT essay?
If you are taking the ACT test on or before September 12th, you will need to learn about the new ACT essay.
Here’s how things are changing
Time: Students will have 40 minutes instead of 30 minutes to complete the essay.
Content: Students will receive a description of a controversial issue and then there will be three prospectives on the issue (adopting one of the prospectives as your own, taking the stated perspective to create your own, or coming up with an entirely new perspective to create your argument.)
Two designated graders score each of the following sections of the test from 1-6, and at the end, they come up with a final scaled score of 1-36.
Here are the 4 categories of evaluation
- Ideas and analysis (Argument)
- Organization (Introduction, body, conclusion)
- Development and support (Evidence)
- Language use (Grammar & mechanics)
