ACT Plus Writing Option
A candidate who has completed the ACT plus writing test within ten years of the EPP admission application date may use their ACT scores to satisfy the basic skills requirement if they meet all of the following:
- A Minimum composite score of 22 or above
- Minimum score of 20 on English/Writing
Candidates who do not meet all of the above scores are encouraged take the Praxis I® Pre Professional Skills Exam, or another basic skills assessment to fulfill the basic skills testing requirement. Your scores are available to review on your unofficial transcripts through eSIS. Transfer students may need to request official copies from ACT http://www.actstudent.org/scores/send/.
Frequently asked questions regarding ACT:
Q: Can I retake the ACT plus writing if I did not get the minimum scores on it in High School?
A: Yes, but remember it is an all or none requirement. It means you would need to take the entire exam (including the science section.) and receive all four the above minimum scores, on that test attempt. You cannot blend your best scores from multiple exam attempts.
Q: Can I appeal a section on the ACT like the Praxis I?
A: No, the ACT is considered a singe exam with multiple sections. The Praxis I is considered three separate exams with three separate scores. The UWRF appeal process requires passing at least two the the three exams. To appeal the ACT would require an exemption for the entire exam.
