SAT

The SAT college entrance and placement exams are created by the College Board, a national nonprofit membership association. High school students take the SAT to measure their critical thinking, reasoning and writing skills and their ability to complete college-level work.

ACT

The ACT college entrance and placement exams are created by ACT, the independent, not-for-profit organization formerly known as American College Testing. High school students take the ACT to assess their general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work.
