State Testing Update

This year, students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades in South Carolina will take the SC College-and-Career Ready Assessment (SC READY) assessment which is comprised of the ELA (writing and reading) and mathematics tests.  Additionally, students will take SC Palmetto Assessments of State Standards (SCPASS) science and social studies tests.

Both SC READY and SCPASS, which are untimed tests, will be administered in an online-testing format. 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. Items on SCPASS will be multiple choice.

SC READY and SCPASS tests are aligned to state standards and what is taught in your child’s classroom.

See WMS Schedule below.

The Humane Society Needs You!

Sixth grade students have begun projects in which they are asked to investigate a "real-life" challenge and use critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and synthesis to propose a solution.   Project choices include video game design or creating an animal shelter for the community.
