The popular ACT college admissions exam is broadening how it reports students’ scores. The exam’s traditional 36-point scale remains unchanged. But, starting next year, students will also receive an ACT score on two new “readiness indicators” reflecting how they did in terms of career readiness and understanding complex text, the nonprofit testing organization announced Friday. A new category will offer students a separate score on STEM performance — short for science, technology, engineering and math — that combines the science and math portions.
