A Raw score of each section is then converted to a scale score with the help of a conversion chart or an algorithm to give you a sectional score from 1 to 36.

Once after computing scale scores of all four sections – English, Math, Reading and Science, take the average of scale scores of four sections, round off the average to the nearest whole number to get a composite score from 1 to 36. Writing test does not have an impact on your composite score. The writing test is graded by two trained raters.

Each one of them will score the section on four different domains on a scale from 1 to 6 using the ACT writing test scoring rubric. Each domain score is a sum of scores given by two raters. The overall writing test score from 2 to 12 is the average of four domain scores rounded to the nearest whole number. If the two raters’ scores differ by more than 1 point then a third rater will grade the section to resolve the discrepancy.
