【官方通告】ACT机考(CBT)将于2018年9月正式与国际考生见面!

为了增强ACT考试的安全性,给予全球考生公平、公正的考试环境。在去年8月,ACT官方宣布引入机考模式,定于今年9月于国际市场推行。然而,ACT机考并未如期而至,众说纷纭之际ACT官方最终给出了明确的答案。ACT考试国际机考模式(CBT)将于2018年9月正式启用于国际考试中心。

ACT俱乐部作为ACT官方授权的推广机构,将最新信息传递给大家。

ACT官方发布:

The computer-based testing model for the ACT test® is scheduled to launch in all international markets in September 2018. With this change, there will be an increase in the number of testing opportunities for your students. Each year, there will be six test windows (up from the current five test dates). In addition, the goal is to make each window two days long, with two sessions each day—a morning session and an afternoon session, depending on location.

ACT考试将于2018年9月在国际市场推行全球机考模式(CBT -- The computer-based testing)。实行这种调整,将为国际学生增加更多的考试机会。每年即将有6次考试安排。(改革前,国际生仅一年5次考试安排)此外,考试时间由1天调整为2天。根据不同考试中心,安排两部分——即为上午和下午不同科目的测试。

Delivering the ACT test online will also reduce the time between testing and reporting. Instead of completed test materials being collected, packed, sent, clearing customs, sent again, received, unpacked, and finally scanned, and returned back to the examinee, multiple choice scores will be available to students as quickly as 48 hours after the student completes the test.

ACT在线机考模式也将缩短考试与成绩报告的发布时间。将取而代之繁复的考卷收集,打包,运送,清关,收取,接收,解压和最终扫描,及反馈给考生成绩的复杂环节,机考的到来,将多项可选的考试评分以最快48小时的高效反馈给学生。

Registration for the 2018-2019 administration of the ACT test in International locations opens in July 2018. In the meantime, the ACT team is working diligently to ensure all systems are prepared and communications sent to various stakeholder audiences, partners and potential examinees, to ensure a successful transition to this new delivery model.

2018-2019 在国际考试中心的考试报名管理工作将于2018年7月正式开始。同时,ACT团队正在努力确保所有考试系统准备就绪,并向相关工作者、合作伙伴和潜在考生发送信函, 以确保成功地过渡到这种新的交付模式。

Frequently Asked Questions

常见问题解答

When will the ACT start as a computer-based test?

The first computerized ACT test at international test centers is scheduled to be fully operational in September 2018. We expect registration for the September date to open July 18, 2018.

什么时候开始正式执行机考(CBT)?

国际考试中心的第一次ACT机考(CBT)计划在2018年9月全面投入运行。我们计划9月的报名时间将于2018年7月18日开启。 

Will there be an option to take the paper-and-pencil version after the 2018 launch?

No. When the computerized ACT test is fully operational for international administration, that will be the only mode of testing available for the examinees taking the ACT test with standard time internationally.

在2018机考推行后, 是否可以2选1,进行纸考或机考版本的选择?

不可以。当ACT机考模式完全推行于国际考试中心,这将是在国际上以固定时间安排的ACT考试,也是ACT国际考生的唯一考试模式。

Many students are worried they will not get a good score on a computer-based test because they have not taken one before. Will ACT provide practice opportunities that will simulate the test?

ACT currently offers a CBT experience through ACT Online Prep (AOP). Note that the knowledge and skills tested on the ACT test will remain the same, as will the types of questions asked, so test preparation materials such as The Official ACT Prep Guide and Preparing for the ACT will continue to provide valid, useful examples of test questions and a simulation of the testing experience.

许多学生担心在机考中考不出好成绩, 因为没有机考经验。ACT考试是否可以在考前提供相似的测试机会?

ACT目前通过ACT在线备考系统(ACT Online Prep ,简称AOP),提供CBT机考体验。注意在ACT机考中知识点和技能的考察与纸考保持一致,正如所问,备考资料(如OG备考指南“The Official ACT Prep Guide”)将继续提供有效、有用的考试样题示例和模拟测试体验。

Will the computer-based test used internationally be equivalent to the paper-and-pencil test used in the US? How will colleges compare them?

The college reportable scores on the computer-based test will be equivalent to those earned on the traditional paper version, and colleges will be able to evaluate them in the same way. The duration of the testing experience may vary between computer-based and paper-and-pencil tests, but the level of skills assessed will remain the same.

国际上使用的机考与美国使用的纸考是否具有同等效力?大学将如何看待两者?

大学申请的送分报告,无论机考分数还是传统纸考版本具有同样的作用。大学将会以同样的方式进行评估。考试持续时间可能会因机考和纸考形式而有所不同, 但评估的能力基准仍保持不变。

Is ACT planning to reduce the number of test dates?

No. In fact, with the launch of computer-based testing in 2018, we plan to expand the number of ACT testing sessions for international students from 5 up to 24, which includes morning and afternoon sessions in a window, depending on location. Students will select one day and session (morning or afternoon) when registering for the ACT test. Additionally, a student can test once per window from the first test date in September, to the last test date in June. Therefore, the maximum number of opportunities a student could test from September to June is six.

ACT考试是否计划减少考试排期?

不会。实际上,随着2018年计考模式的启动,我们计划将国际考生的ACT考试频次从5期增加到 24次,其中包括一期中上午和下午的部分,视考点而定。当学生报名时,将可以选择一天的部分考试(上午或下午)。此外, 学生可以每次只参加一部分的考试,如9月第一次参加机考,到次年6月为止。因此,从第一年9月到次年6月,学生可以最多参加6次完整的ACT考试。

Continuation of this level of service will be reliant upon positive results for testers, counselors and admissions advisors. ACT is committed to supporting international students in reaching their educational goals by offering our test in as many countries and on as many dates as we can, while maintaining test security and keeping costs down.

维持这一服务将依赖于考生的正向结果,顾问和招生部门的反馈。ACT致力于帮助国际生实现其教育目标的可量化性,在尽可能多的国家,提供最大限度的考试日期选择,同时保持ACT考试的安全性并降低成本。

How many sections will there be in the computer-based ACT, and how many questions in each section?

The ACT test will have the same four content sections and continue to measure English (75 questions), math (60 questions), reading (40 questions), and science (40 questions), with an optional writing section (1 question).

机考将由几个部分组成?每部分分别有多少道题?

ACT考试将维持四个科目的考试内容不变。并延续英语(75题), 数学 (60题), 阅读 (40题), 科学 (40题), 以及一个可选的写作部分。

How can students prepare for the new test?

Students should prepare for this test just as they would prepare for the current version. Focus on mastering the content through rigorous coursework, tutoring, and test preparation. ACT Online Prep provides diagnostic assessment and other information in a computerized or mobile delivery method to help students prepare for the ACT. Closer to the beginning of CBT, an online tutorial and computer-based practice tests will be made available.

备考生如何为ACT机考模式做准备?

备考生们应该像以往准备纸考版本一样做准备。专注于通过严谨的课程知识、课外辅导和备考资料来掌握考察科目。ACT在线备考课程(AOP)提供的自测评估和多平台解决方案,可以帮助学生高效准备ACT机考。更接近机考CBT的原形,融合在线教程并进行机考的实践演练。
