ACT - Need info on new writing score rubric
My son got a composite score of 35 on Sept 2015 ACT which rolled out new writing essay format. He scored 11/12 on all 4 categories in the Essay which is in very close to perfect. But his writing score is scored as 31/36. We are confused as to how 11/12 in all categories translated to 31/36. He would have not taken the test again with his current composite score, but now re-thinking. We are thinking of submitting for re-scoring the essay, but do not know anyone who has done it and had good experience with that. We have sent email to ACT requesting this info, but have not heard back in a week and their phones are always busy.7 replies
