It assesses high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work.  The score range is 1-36.The multiple-choice tests cover four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. An optional 5th test, Writing, measures skill in planning and writing a short essay. (It cannot be taken separately.) The Writing test may be required for admission, depending on the university.
