    What is Act Notes?

    Act Notes refers to various entities, including a software tool, a type of service, and a type of data. As a software tool, Act! is a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and marketing automation solution that enables users to manage notes, tasks, communications, and appointments effectively. It is designed to assist businesses in organizing customer interactions and streamlining various business processes.

    As a type of service, Act Notes is related to the Test Information Release (TIR) service offered by ACT. This service allows examinees to receive a digital copy of the multiple-choice test questions, their answers, their answer document, an answer key, and a conversion table used to determine ACT scores. The TIR service is available for purchase, specifically for National testing examinees, on select national test dates, and can be requested in alternate formats through MyACT. It can also be requested during registration or for up to six months after the test date. Additionally, it is provided free of charge to students who qualify for a fee waiver.

    Regarding data, Act Notes pertains to ACT data, which includes the Year-to-Year Average ACT Composite Score Changes and the ACT Superscore Database. The database provides detailed information on the distribution of ACT scores, including counts, percentages, and cumulative data. It is based on three scoring methods: the most recent score, the highest score from a single test attempt, and the superscore—the latter being the highest subject test scores across all test attempts. This database is beneficial for states, higher education institutions, and students, especially those seeking merit aid or college admission, as it aids in understanding the impact of superscoring on students’ scores.
