Dumb question, but did the ACT change the format for its English section?

My English teacher told me that the ACT has changed the English test a little. She said it's more comprehensive than before and that they've reduced the number of grammar questions and increased the number of rhetorical skill questions. Mind you, that she's 70 years old and gets stuff confused very easily. Just making sure everything's the same since I'll be taking the test in June.

    heh?? I can't hear you sonny??....but seriously, is this really true? and do HS kids really know the difference between grammar and rhetorical skill questions enough to know that they increased one and decreased the other?
