Super-Scoring on the ACT and SAT

The composite score on the ACT is calculated by averaging four individual subject scores(English, Reading, Math, and Science).  When a student takes the ACT more than once, JBU will make a new composite score for the student, averaging the highest subject scores. See below for an example:

    ACT 1      ACT 2    ACT 3
English 25 27 24
Reading 26 23 29
Science 30 29 28
Math 31 33 32

Composite 

28 28 28

Superscore: 30

 

The composite score on the SAT is calculated by adding together two subject scores (Verbal and Math). When a student takes the SAT more than once, JBU will make a new composite score for the student, adding together the highest subject scores that the student has received.
