State Testing Update for Spring 2015
Aspire (3rd-8th)- April 28-May 1
SC PASS (4th-8th) - May 7 & 8
     This past summer the S. C. Legislature changed the state testing program. A new test called Aspire will be given in grades 3 through 8 to test reading, writing, English, math, and science. Students in grades 4-8 will continue to take the SC PASS tests for science and social studies. The Aspire tests will be given on April 28 through May 1, and the two SC PASS tests will be administered on May 7 and 8, 2015. 
     The biggest change that our students will notice is that each Aspire subtest has a time limit. Students will be tested for approximately one hour per day, and the writing test must be completed in 30 minutes.  Some students may not finish before they must stop working and turn in their tests.  Our students are more familiar with the SC PASS tests, which have no specific time limits. Teachers are currently providing practice for students so that they will become more comfortable with the timed tests. The two different science tests will allow us to assess our students’ knowledge of the South Carolina science standards while still being able to compare our students’ achievement with their peers nationally.
