Sophmore ACT "ASPIRE" Testing
Friday, May 1, 2015
About the test...
ACT Aspire—a product of ACT--is the first online assessment system to fully connect student performance from elementary grades through high school. ACT Aspire will provide educators and parents with the insights they need to help students get and stay on track by linking teaching and learning. ACT Aspire includes assessments that measure how much students have learned over time, as well as assessments that help educators better understand students' learning needs. The results will inform teachers about students' progress toward specific learning standards, so they can better tailor their instruction and resources to help students learn.
