Requirements for the 2020-21 administration of statewide assessments remain unchanged under state and federal law. Schools should begin planning for in-person testing in order to meet these state and federal requirements. This includes planning to assess students who are receiving instruction remotely (virtually). Please note that remote (virtual) testing options are not available for statewide assessments.
- ACT Aspire® is a summative assessment that measures what students have learned in the areas of: English, Reading, Math, Science, and Writing.
- 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® scores predict how a student will perform on the ACT when they reach 11th grade. Students who need academic interventions or challenges can be identified earlier in their high school careers.
