Review these FAQs for answers specific to the ACT Score Reports.

When were ACT Score Reports made available Encoura?

The College Score Reporting service began transitioning to the Encoura platform in Fall 2019. Organizations were transitioned in stages according to how they received score reports (Paper, CD-ROM, and/or AIRO). 

How do I request access to Encoura for ACT Score Reports?

Requesting access is easy! Fill in the form above, and our team will reach out to confirm a few details. Once confirmed, you will be sent an activation email with a link to set your username and password.


Do institutions already using Encoura need to request access?

No! You may simply request for a member of our team to update your permission settings to allow you to download the files.

If the person responsible for handling ACT Score Reports at a member institution does not have an Encoura Data Lab account, an account administrator at the institution can create a new account and grant permission to download ACT Score Reports via the administration panel. Account administrators may grant the permission to as many users as needed.

Scores can be downloaded in Encoura Data Center in either a standard CSV (comma delimited) format or in a PDF.

How are institutions notified when new ACT Score Reports are available?

You have the option to receive email notifications when new Score Reports are available. Notifications are delivered based on the settings established in your account. Scores are delivered, by default, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday but you can also choose daily or weekly delivery.

Can we automate downloading ACT Score Reports?

You sure can! Encoura features an Application Programming Interface (API) that facilitates automated data delivery. Documentation for the API, including sample scripts, can found in Help Center once you have your account.

My institution receive scores for multiple locations. Will that continue in Encoura?

Yes, institution systems receiving schools as part of a reporting group will continue to receive score reports sent to all of your locations in Encoura. We can also set up a reporting group if your institution would like all ACT Score Reports for your campuses routed to a single location. 

We don't consider test scores for admission. How would ACT Score Reports be useful to us?

As part of our efforts to support student on their path to college and career success, ACT allows each student sitting for the test to send an official copy of their score report to up to 5 institutions at no cost. The reports are sent directly to you from students who are familiar with your “institutional identity” and interested in your college, scholarship, and talent placement opportunities. The information in these reports can be used to complete applications, complete profile information, and shed light on educational attainment when awarding scholarships or military appointments. 

Who can I reach out to if I still have questions?

Questions can be directed to your dedicated Regional Director or submitted online. Our Enrollment Outreach Manager will ensure the question is routed to the appropriate team member for the best response.
