Students in grades 9 and 10 will take the ACT Aspire exam in the spring.
This exam is a summative assessment that measures what students have learned in the areas of: English, Reading, Math, Science, and Writing. The ACT Aspire is an online assessment. Only a small number of students who require testing in a specialized format such as Braille or large print materials, or those students who require American Sign Language translation will be tested with a paper and pencil test.
ACT Aspire exam scores predict how students will perform on both The ACT and ACT WorkKeys when they reach 11th grade. Students who need academic interventions or challenges can be identified earlier in their high school careers.
