THE NEW PSAT: ACT announced a new test on March 22: the PreACT, a multiple-choice test for 10th grade students preparing to take the ACT. It will be available to schools, districts and states in fall 2016. According to ACT's press release, the test's subject areas will be English, math, reading and science. PreACT will have fewer questions but will use the same 1-36 scoring scale as the full-fledged ACT. The test joins ACT and ACT Aspire Early High School on ACT's menu and will cost $12 per student.
