Students Will No Longer Take The ACT Aspire Test

Friday, June 23, 2017


Alabama will stop giving the ACT Aspire test to students. The state Board of Education voted unanimously not to renew the contract with the company. Superintendent Michael Sentence says there are several issues with the last administration of the test. He says test results are often delayed and when the state receives them some of the data is bad. Alabama began the ACT Aspire test in 2014 as the annual reading and math assessment for grades three through eight in public schools. Sentence says schools will use the GlobalScholar test next year until the state transitions to a new standardized test.
