The ACT College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) are the backbone of ACT assessments. Empirically derived descriptions of the essential skills and knowledge students need to become ready for college and career.
The CCRS give clear meaning to test scores and serve as a link between what students have learned and what they are ready to learn next. Parents, teachers, counselors, and students have used the Standards to:
- communicate widely shared learning goals and expectations
- relate test scores to the skills needed in high school and beyond
- understand the increasing complexity of skills needed across the score ranges in English, Mathematics, Reading, Science, and Writing
