Aiken County Public Schools
"Building for a Better Tomorrow, One Child at a Time"
Updates on your investment in public education!
Writing and English will be given on Tuesday, April 28.
Reading will be administered on Wednesday, April 29.
Mathematics will be given on Thursday April 30.
Science will be administered on Tuesday, May 5.
It is important to remember that this is a timed test! To find out how many questions will be given and the time students have to complete each section, please visit the home page of the S.C. Department of Education and click the ACT button. Youíll also find FREE test questions and resources!
The biggest change that our students will notice is that each Aspire†sub-test†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 studentsí knowledge of the South Carolina science standards while still being able to compare our studentsí achievement with their peers nationally. †
