ACT-R - American College Test ResidualThe ACT-R is a college admissions exam that tests the areas of English, Math, Reading, and Science. The ACT-R is a curriculum based test. The questions on the ACT-R are directly related to what you have learned in your high school courses in English, Mathematics, and Science. The difference between ACT and ACT-R scores is that ACT-R scores cannot be transferred to another university.
