Who Are ACT Item Writers?
ACT item writers are educators like you from across the United States. We work with a diverse group of item writers to help ensure that our English, Reading, Mathematics, and Science Tests represent what is being taught in classrooms nationwide and reflect a balance in gender, race/ethnicity, and geographical representation.
- Teachers for grades 3 through 8 can develop test materials for grade-level Reading, Science, and Mathematics Tests. Teachers for grade 8 can also develop test materials for the EXPLORE® program.
- High school teachers can develop test materials for the EXPLORE, PLAN®, and ACT® programs.
- Postsecondary educators can develop test materials for the ACT program.
