What is the purpose of the ACT Aspire tests?
While state tests are not the only measurement used to determine how your child is doing, it does enable educators to compare how students are progressing over time. This helps informs teachers on how to develop plans regarding student growth and learning loss, and the impact COVID has had on student learning.
