Writing Test

Magoosh doesn't currently provide a grading service for ACT practice tests. But, if you plan to take the ACT with Writing, it’s important to evaluate your practice essay to see how you can improve.

As with any timed writing you’d do in school, there’s no one perfect way to respond to an essay prompt. So, how do you grade your ACT Writing test?

First, review the official Writing Test Scoring Rubric from act.org. Then, try to be objective as you grade your own essay. You can also ask a friend, parent, or teacher to grade it for you and give you a second opinion. Just understanding the ACT’s essay scoring rubric can help you tailor your writing process toward the standards that the ACT most values when grading the Writing test.
