I like your site. I just read through all these ACT essay scoring posts; I’m posting here because of the score similarity with the above poster. I’m really confused now, as the ACT has the online “Preparing for the ACT 2015-2016” guide that explains how to score the essay writing test (pages 59-62) and refers to the rubric on page 59. My son had a Dec. 2015 ACT essay score of 29, with domain writing scores (in order) of 11, 10, 10 12, for a raw score of 43. The rubric says to take the raw scores and use the graph (42-43) to get the scaled score of 33. Not a 29. Do they not use their own graph that they provide, and instead base the scaled score on the varied results of different test dates?
