More Greenville County High School Students Pass HSAP
More than 85 percent (85.3) of Greenville County high school students passed the High School Assessment Program (HSAP), the state’s high school exit exam, on the first attempt in spring 2013. The 2013 passage rate exceeded last year’s passage rate of 82.8%.
GCS students also outscored the 2013 South Carolina average of 82.0% percent for all high school students in the state who passed both sections of the test on the first attempt.
All students must pass the High School Assessment Program (HSAP) Exit Examination to qualify for a standard South Carolina High School diploma. The HSAP consists of two content areas: English/language arts and mathematics. The tests are initially administered to students in the second year of high school. Students who do not pass have additional opportunities to retake the test in later grades.
First attempt HSAP scores are used in federal accountability (ESEA) letter grades and State School Report Card ratings.
