The ACT Reading test gauges a student\'s ability to identify the main points and themes of written texts. Like the SAT, the ACT is used to assess a high school student\'s preparedness for college. It is administered by ACT, Inc. and stands for American College Testing. The reading portion is part of four ACT exam components, along with English, Mathematics, and Science. This test is taken on paper, but will soon be given electronically.
