The ACA tests your ability to read and write at a college level. You will read a short article and will then complete a written response (an essay) based on what you have read.

  • You will have 90 minutes to complete the assessment.

    • Effectively introduce, support and conclude an idea within a 5-paragraph structure and within each paragraph.
    • Correctly employ grammar, sentence structure, spelling, capitalization, punctuation, tone, and word choice and usage.
