The ACT Interim assessments were originally produced by ACT to serve as benchmarks aligned to the core content measured on the PreACT and ACT and sold under the brand name, Aspire. The items were originally aligned to the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards. When the assessments were transferred to the Mosaic by ACT® Adaptive Academic Learning platform, the items were also aligned to the core concepts of instruction aligned to state standards.
