Wisconsin Student Assessment System required assessment for all students in grade nine and 10.
- ACT Aspire Early High School is a summative assessment that measures what students have learned in the areas of: English, reading, math, science, and writing.
- ACT Aspire Early High School 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 Early High School scores predict how a student 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.
The testing window for the ACT Aspire Grades 9-10 is from April 9 to May 11.
Students with significant cognitive disabilities will take the Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) assessment during the Forward and DLM testing window, March 19 to May 4, 2018.
