The ACT® test was developed by the American College Testing Program. The ACT exam has four sections: English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. The maximum score is a 36. The ACT test is used to screen college applicants. All students under 21 are required to have a National ACT score as part of the admission process. Some other reasons a student might need a National ACT are:
- applying for scholarships
- concurrent enrollment students
- health science majors
- removing course deficiencies
There are two types of ACT (National and Residual).
Northern Oklahoma College in Tonkawa and Enid administers the National ACT on all six test offerings. National scores may be used at any institution.
