2018 SC PASS and SC READY Testing Information

 Standardized testing for SCPASS (Science or Social Studies) and SC Ready (ELA and Math) will be taking place in May.  Below is some information that we hope you find helpful. Please review the information, and if you have any questions, contact the testing coordinator, Ms. Bush, at 355-7929.

  • Testing begins at promptly 8:35, so please have students at school on time.
  • Doctors’ appointments or other out of school functions should not be scheduled during testing times. 
  • Cell phones, smart watches, and other electronics should be stored in the locker or left at home. Students may not be in possession of any electronic devices that can be used for communicating, timing, creating images, or storing images.  If brought into the test session, they will be collected by the test administrator and returned after the test session is complete. There is a protocol for devices necessary for medical monitoring.
  • Please see the attached schedule for testing dates and times. Note that each grade level tests separately. ​The tests are not timed. The students may actively work on the test as long as needed, but they must complete the test by the end of the school day.  The majority of the students are projected to finish around 11:30 each morning.  
  • Students will be provided state testing accommodations according to IEP, 504, or ESOL plans.
