If you have noticed that your son or daughter received an unusually low score on his or her ACT writing section, you are not alone. There is a widely noted trend of lower-than-expected scores on the writing section of the ACT since the arrival of the new ACT essay format in September 2015. For instance, some students scoring in the 30's on all other test sections have received essay scores in the 20's. On average, scores on the new writing section have been 3.2 points lower than students' composite scores.
When most people think about college preparation, their first thought is SAT/ACT preparation. While standardized test preparation is still part of the process, it is only one of many important aspects of college preparation.
