9th Grade students will take the Winter MAP test in ELA and Math. MAP, or the Measure of Academic Progress, is a computerized adaptive test which helps teachers, parents, and administrators improve learning for all students and make informed decisions to promote a child's academic growth. MAP is used to measure a student's progress or growth in school. The testing information is important to teachers because it indicates a student's strengths are and help that is needed in any specific areas. Teachers can use this information to help them guide instruction in the classroom.
Here is the schedule for Brick and Mortar students:
All testing will be in the Media Center

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Preparing students who are College and Career-Ready is an important responsibility of Greenville County Schools and the State of South Carolina. We want to ensure that all students have the skills necessary to pursue future education or begin a career after high school. To this end, the South Carolina Department of Education is offering students in grade 11 who did not test last spring (ACT or SAT) the opportunity to participate in this year’s administration.
The ACT is offered in February 2021(Actual Date TBD), and the SAT is offered on Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
You may explore the links below for more information on the ACT or SAT to help determine the best test for your child. Should you have any questions about the tests, please contact your school counselor.

· SAT Information: https://goo.gl/WW6DXT
The ACT and SAT prompts your student to complete a pre-test survey. The student must provide a mailing address, which is used to mail the student his/her scores. The student may choose to send test scores to up to four colleges or scholarship programs and provide other optional student-specific information (e.g., student achievement, courses, grades, future plans, religion, and interests). The testing contractor (i.e., ACT or College Board for SAT) retains both the student’s test scores and, if completed, the student information identified in the surveys. ACT or College Board may use and share information obtained from the optional section of the survey with others for additional uses, such as research.
Please complete the Google Form below to indicate your testing choice.
If you have any questions, please email the testing coordinator, Mr. Kenneth Skipper at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 864-355-8727.
