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 SCPASS tests for science and social studies. The Aspire ELA and math tests will be given on April 28 -30, the Aspire science test on May 5, and the two SCPASS 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 SCPASS 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.
Thanks for your patience as we implement this new testing program. – Randy Stowe
