TCU Superscores the ACT

April 2nd, 2013 by

TCU joins a lengthening list of colleges and universities superscoring the ACT (most colleges automatically superscore the SAT). To superscore the ACT, colleges recompute the “composite” score by selecting the highest subscores from different test dates to come up with a new higher composite or superscore.

Since students are increasingly turning to the ACT as their test of choice, and 20 percent of the states in the nation require it for student assessments, more students have multiple test results that could benefit from superscore policies.
