ASPIRE by ACT
In April 2016, elementary schools across the Archdiocese of Chicago administered the ACT Aspire summative test for the first time to all students in grades 3rd-8th. The ACT Aspire test assesses students’ academic proficiency in five academic areas: English, Reading, Math, Science and Writing. The test is aligned to the rigorous curriculum standards that inform classroom instruction in all classrooms across the Archdiocese.
The ACT Aspire test evaluates student understanding of concepts and asks students to demonstrate their proficiency with grade-level skills. Additionally, ACT Aspire engages all students in a written response to a grade-appropriate prompt. Assessment of writing has high value for college bound students. The results of the test are outlined in the below graphs.
