Chalk Talk: ACT or SAT?
Deciding which test to take as a high school junior or senior can be a difficult decision, so let’s look at both the ACT and SAT to see if there truly is a difference. Both the ACT and SAT are entrance exams used by colleges and universities to help assist in their admissions process. The ACT is considered an achievement test. It is meant to measure what you have learned in school; while the SAT test is an aptitude test that measures reasoning, math, and writing. Test length varies between the two tests varies with the ACT having 215 questions with an essay and the SAT having 170 questions with an essay. The ACT has a science section that the SAT does not. Scoring varies as well with the ACT scores ranging from 1 to 36. The SAT is scored on a 200 to 800 point scale per section, with each of the 3 sections. Many colleges accept either SAT or ACT scores so you may be able to choose which test you take.
