ACT Test Release Information for 2019
The test release information (TRI) for the ACT has recently been updated, so we’d like to highlight this optional service that allows you to request a copy of the questions and answers from your test.
How it Works
TRI is available to any student who takes the ACT at a national test center on a national test date in the months of December, April, and June. For a small fee of $20.00, it can be purchased online within five days of the test date, or by mail up to six months after the test date. Students who took or plan to take the test on the following dates are eligible for TRI:
- December 8, 2018
- April 13, 2019
- June 8, 2019
Your TRI includes:
- A copy of the multiple-choice questions
- A list of your selected answers
- An answer key
If you took the writing test, in addition to the items listed above, you’ll also receive:
- A copy of the writing prompt
- A copy of the scoring rubric
- A copy of the scores assigned to your essay
Information on ordering a photocopy of your answer sheet (including the essay) for another small fee will be enclosed with your materials as well.
Why You Should Get It
While the standard score report is helpful for gauging college preparedness and potential career fields, the TRI provides greater specificity on what subsections of each test (English, Math, Reading, Science, Writing) could use extra practice. It allows you to examine the mistakes that were made, and learn from them, allowing you to improve your skills and do better on a potential retest.
