Chalk Talk: SAT vs. ACT
Standardized tests were developed to evaluate students’ college readiness. The SAT is the older of the tests, and the ACT was created because of complaints of bias on the SAT. Of course, the SAT has been significantly revised, and continues to be, in order to eliminate bias. They are both very similar tests. Both require a large time commitment, with breaks given between some sections. Both test similar core proficiencies. The ACT includes a science section, which the SAT does not. The SAT begins with a written essay, whereas the ACT ends with one. The main difference has to do with the approach the tests take. In a general sense, on the SAT students identify errors, whereas on the ACT they solve errors. Many people find the ACT to have more difficult math, but on the flipside, students with learning challenges tend to far better on the ACT.
