In Episode 264 of the Prepped and Polished Podcast, Aaron shares the differences between the Digital SAT and the ACT exam.

The main differences Digital SAT and the ACT are:

  1. The Digital SAT is taken on a computer and the ACT is a paper test. There is a digital version of the ACT but it is currently available for international students only.
  2. The Digital SAT has adaptive difficulty while the ACT is a fixed test. The math and science sections of the ACT are getting more difficult. The Digital SAT adjusts to the test taker’s answers and can get easier or more difficult depending on how the test taker is doing.
  3. The Digital SAT has multiple choice questions as well as open response questions while the ACT is all multiple choice.

Note: We are only looking at the digital SAT and the paper based ACT. There is a computer based ACT but that is for international testing only as of this recording podcast.
