This user handbook includes four main sections: (1) components of the American College Testing (ACT) Program Assessment; (2) ACT Assessment Reports and Data Services; (3) using ACT student data; and (4) ACT assessment participation. The components described are the four tests of educational development, the High School Course/Grade Information questionnaire, and the student profile section. The following three reports are distributed for each student who completes the ACT Assessment on its national test dates: (1) the student report; (2) the high school report; and (3) the college report. These reports are described, and information necessary to interpret them is presented. Both high school and college uses of ACT student data are described. Information is also given about participation in the program, including registration, taking the test, and score reporting. Six tables and 16 figures supplement the discussion. Thirty-four references are listed, and one appendix summarizes ACT services and materials. (SLD)
