The South Carolina College- and Career- READY Assessments (SC READY) are statewide assessments in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics that are aligned to state standards and what is taught in your child’s classroom.  

All students in grades 3–8 are required to take the SC READY except those who qualify for the South Carolina National Center and State Collaborative (SC-NCSC).

Tests may be administered via an online format (beginning April 19) and/or paper and pencil (April 26-28) format. Schools will notify parents of the type of format and the testing schedule which will be administered at your child’s school.

SC READY 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. Items on SC READY will include selected response, short answer, evidence-based selected response, and text-dependent analysis. Evidence-based selected response will require students to read a piece of text or a passage and choose the best answer from answer choices. Text-dependent analysis will require students to read a piece of text or a passage and draw upon that text for their extended written responses.
