Results and Reports
This report features a student’s summary profile of ACT Engage® scores (expressed as both scale scores and percentile scores), student self-reported behavioral indicators (e.g., days absent in the last month, homework not done, prior grades), and information on how to understand the scores. The Student Report also provides interpretive feedback for each ACT Engage scale. The scores are sorted into three categories that help to emphasize the developmental aspect of the feedback:
- Capitalize on Your Strengths, which includes high scores.
- Continue to Develop Your Skills, which includes moderate scores.
- Make Plans for Improvement, which includes low scores.
Finally, the Student Report provides a Recommended Plan of Action to help students get started with their developmental plans.

The Advisor Report includes the same information as the Student Report. In addition, it contains the Academic Success Index and the Graduation Index, predictive scores you can use to identify students who may be at risk of academic difficulties or dropout. The index incorporates information from the different ACT Engage scales, behavioral indicators, and self-reported grades into a single number that facilitates identification of students most at risk.
The Roster Report contains information from all ACT Engage assessments scored for a school. It includes students’ names, IDs, behavioral indicators (e.g., days absent in the last month, homework not done, prior grades), demographics, ACT Engage scale and percentile scores, ACT Engage Academic Success and Graduation indices, and flags for scoring issues (e.g., missing data, response inconsistency). Those students who were flagged during the scoring process are highlighted in yellow on the Roster Report for easy identification. The Roster Report is in a Microsoft® Excel format, which gives schools the flexibility of merging ACT Engage scores with other school data.
ENGAGE Grades 6-9 provides two aggregate reports:
The School Aggregate Report includes information about all ACT Engage assessments administered by a school during its window of administration, featuring aggregate summaries at the school level. Schools can use it to identify areas where school-wide resources or interventions may be needed. The report contains average scores showing how your sample of students scored on the ten ACT Engage scales, behavioral indicators, and the Academic Success and Graduation indices.
The District Aggregate Report includes all ACT Engage assessments administered by a district during its window of administration; it is available only to those districts that administer ACT Engage in multiple schools. It features aggregate summaries at the district level, and districts can use it to identify areas where district-wide resources or interventions may be needed. The report contains average scores showing how your district’s sample of students scored on the ten ACT Engage scales, behavioral indicators, and the Academic Success and Graduation indices.
