Aspire testing dropped for Pre-ACT in grades 8, 9

Posted on: October 22, 2016

Little Miami students in grades 8 and 9 will not be administered the Aspire assessment this November as they have been in the past.

The ACT organization has released a new Pre-ACT assessment, where the student report includes a subject and composite ACT score prediction, an item analysis, Your Education and Career Journey section, and a Your Interest-Career Fit section.  Little Miami believes this assessment will provide students with better college and career information.  

The Pre-ACT will be administered during a student's 10th grade year.

If parents so choose, students in grades 8 and 9 have the option to participate in a Saturday administration of the Aspire assessment. The cost of the assessment is $24. Interested families should contact their student's principal.
