   What is ACT?   On their path to College & Career

ACT Aspire maps learner progress from grades three through high school on a vertical scale, anchored to the scoring system of the ACT.

ACT Aspire is the first computer-based, longitudinal college and career readiness assessment system that connects student growth from the elementary grades through early high school (3–10). This vertically-aligned system of summative, interim, and classroom assessments is built upon the same rigorous psychometric and research foundations as ACT Explore®, ACT Plan®, and the ACT® college readiness assessment.
