SCPASS & SC READY

Standardized testing is almost here. We will begin testing on Tuesday, May 10th. Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will take several tests over a 2 week period. SC Ready is the test for English Language Arts and Math. SC PASS is the test for Science and Social Studies. Each of these tests measure a student’s understanding of the South Carolina standards for that subject.

Students take the ELA test over 2 days. The tests are not timed, but must be completed that day. Students may not have any electronic devices that can communicate, record, time, create images, or store images. The test administrator will collect all devices and return them after the test session is completed.

Parents should not schedule doctor’s appointments or any other out-of-school functions during testing. Your child’s attendance is important. Children tend to perform better when testing with their class, rather than on a make-up. Please ensure your child gets a good night’s rest and is at school on time. Encourage your child to do his/her best before leaving each morning.
