ACT Aspire® is an online summative assessment that measures what students have learned in the areas of: English, Reading, Math, Science, and Writing. ACT Aspire® scores predict how a student will perform on the ACT when they reach 11th grade.
The PreACT provides students with a structured testing environment similar to what they will experience when taking the ACT, ACT test-quality questions, and predictive scores on the familiar 1–36 scale. This helps students get comfortable with the test and understand how they’re doing in core subjects. It also helps parents and educators identify areas where additional support might be necessary. This test experience is usually provided in the fall for grade 11 students.
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) entered into a partnership with ACT®, Inc. during the 2014-15 fiscal year to comprehensively assess Wisconsin high school students. The ACT with writing consists of four multiple-choice tests: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science; and a 40-minute essay test that measures student writing skills.
DPI also uses The ACT® with writing for the high school accountability measure in order to determine the extent to which schools and districts across the state meet proficiency standards.
MAP Growth is an online assessment that helps teachers understand what students know today, so goals can be set to improve growth throughout the year. Students are usually tested two or three times each school year in reading and math. Students cannot pass or fail this test. MAP scores do not affect a student's grade.
