    What is the SAT?

    "SAT" stands for Scholastic Aptitude Test. It is a standardized test that measures critical reading, math and writing skills. SAT scores are one of the criteria colleges and universities use to make their admissions decisions. Each section of the SAT receives a grade between 200 and 800, and the final score is arrived at by adding the scores of the three sections together.

    What is the ACT?
    ACT originally stood for American College Testing. Now it offers a full range of programs and services beyond the college entrance testing. The ACT is an achievement test, measuring what a student has learned in school.
