   The ACT assessment is an achievement test, measuring students' academic achievement in four areas: English, reading, mathematics and science reasoning. The four tests are based on the curriculum taught in the nation's high schools.
   A record number of ACT tests, nearly two million, were administered during the 2000-2001 testing year.
