Changes to elementary and middle school tests coming

State testing for students in Grades 3-8 includes a new, timed test this school year called ACT Aspire. In Richland Two, our students will take the paper and pencil ACT Aspire tests for writing, English, reading and mathematics. They will not take the optional ACT Aspire test for science that some districts may use. Students in Grades 4-8 will continue to take SCPASS for science and social studies. Schools have the option of administering SCPASS as an online test or a paper and pencil test. Third-graders will not take any state tests for science and social studies.

Special needs students will be provided with accommodations to take ACT Aspire™. To learn more about these accommodations, please review the Accessibility Users Guide here.
