  •  

  •  ACT Aspire provides an array of features and functions which includes:

    • a standards-based system of assessments to monitor progress toward college and career readiness.
    • a school-wide assessment, data management, and reporting functions for all students grades 6-10.
    • assessments in summative, interim, and classroom formats.
    • alignment with the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks.
    • capability of predicting outcomes on the ACT.

    Why are the ACT Aspire assessments important?

    • Parents, students and educators will be able to track student progress using comparable measures from one grade to the next.
    • Easy-to-use data helps students and families better understand academic performance and ultimately build a stronger, better-equipped workforce.
    • Predicts how students will perform across grades and on the ACT.
    • Gives students in grade 8 and above an indicator of Progress Toward Career Readiness.
    • Along with the valuable new measures of readiness (STEM scores, text complexity, etc.), there is deeper, more valuable data that will enable educators to better inform instruction and parents to better understand their students' progress.

    The ACT (Grade 12)

    • Because the ACT is a curriculum-based assessment, test results are used to improve school and district curriculum, improve instructional practices, make educational interventions, and assist in educational and career planning.

    Why the ACT for all seniors?

    • The ACT is accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the United States.
    • Schoolwide testing raises college awareness and exposure among all students, rather than just self-selected, college-bound students.
    • ACT Test results indicate the number of students who are ready for college-level coursework.  The Benchmarks are the minimum scores on the ACT English, Reading, Mathematics and Science tests to indicate at least a 50 percent change of students obtaining a B or higher or a 75 percent change of obtaining a C or higher in a corresponding, credit-bearing college course.
    • Offers education and career planning sections.
