 ACT Vocabulary Test by Dynamic SheetsNew test sheet  
Before the ACT exam, students usually try to enhance vocabulary as strong as possible. Although ACT isn't a pure English test, three of them mainly rely on English skills. Like all English tests, you cannot expect to get a high score with poor vocabulary. Vocabulary is definitely the base to think, talk, read, and write, which is the foundation of any language skills. To build ACT vocabulary, you need to study firstly, and then review known words to keep them refreshed.

This app, ACT Vocabulary Test Online, is a tool to help you do build ACT words. Within modern education methodology, the app runs on random practice. It has a built-in set of ACT word list, more than 1000, which is matched with the middle level of 12th-grade students and is highly useful in ACT papers.

It is a game-style app. You don't need a detail plan or schedule to use it. Anytime and anywhere, you can access its web pages and practice or test as long as you have the Internet. Some people use it as a tool to evaluate ACT vocabulary. Others use it to study new words or review known words. Based on lots of exercises, you may finally familiarize with the built-in vocabulary and keep them warm until the test day.

The primary functionality of the app is to make ACT word question sheets dynamically, and then hosts the sheets as online practices. Showing quizzes and auto checking answers are its core features. Besides, students can store the result of each test for further analyzing. For example, the data is useful to compare with either previous data or even others' data to improve performance.

The app has some extra features that similar tools hardly have. It includes a sample sentence for each word, which helps very much to learn new words. It also provides definitions of 20 languages for every word and let ESL students select mother language and integrate it with English explanation.

As we mentioned, the app needs to store your test data because its core features are relied on previous practices' results. So you should sign on before any activities. ACT Vocabulary Test Online is free. You can use a generic examword.com account (email/access code) to sign on. If you don't have an account yet, create one is only to take a few minutes. Sign on and start to enjoy this great web app!
