ACT expanding test score reports

Washington (AP) -- The ACT college admissions exam is broadening how it reports students' scores.

The exam's traditional 36-point scale remains unchanged, but the ACT said students will also receive a score on two new readiness indicators next year, reflecting how they did in terms of career readiness and understanding complex text.

Two other new categories will offer students a separate score on a performance measure that combines the science and math portions and a second in the area of language arts that combines how they did on the English, reading and writing portions.

The ACT said the optional writing section is also being modified to make the essay topics more advanced.
