What is the PreACT?
The PreACT is
a multiple-choice test aimed at preparing students for the ACT.
The PreACT has the same four multiple-choice sections as the regular ACT: English, Math, Reading, and Science. There is no Writing section. The test is also scored the same way as the regular ACT, on a scale from 1-36. The main difference is that it's considerably shorter. While the regular ACT is 2 hours and 55 minutes long (3 hours 35 minutes if you add the Writing section), the
PreACT is only 1 hour and 55 minutes long.
The questions on the exam are formulated from past ACT's, so
the difficulty level of the test is on par with the regular ACT. The point of the test is to help students get a better sense of where they would score on the real ACT and how much more they need to prepare before taking it.
If your student will be taking the ACT as a junior or senior, they might consider taking the PreACT in 10th or 11th grade to augment their prep efforts.
Since it is made up of actual ACT questions, it will give an accurate estimate of their score level and help diagnose weaknesses so they can study strategically.
