Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) TestingThe Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) Writing tests will be administered to students in Greenville County Schools in grades 3 through 8 on March 19 and 20. The writing test consists of extended response item administered on Day 1 (March 19) and multiple-choice items administered on Day 2 (March 20).

PASS has been designed to assess higher levels of learning as well as basic skills.  Students are asked questions that test their knowledge and skills in a variety of ways. PASS tests are untimed for each day of testing; however, each session must be completed during a single day unless the student has an IEP, 504 Plan, or ESOL accommodation plan specifying administration of a single test over several days. During the March Writing Day 1 assessment, all students must complete the extended-response portion test in one day.

Help us help your child perform to the best of his or her ability.  For more information about testing or your child’s progress, please call your child’s school.
