Information for families about assessment in grades 3-8


With assistance from ACT, the SC Education Oversight Committee has developed a resource for school districts and schools to use to inform students and parents of students in grades 3-8 about upcoming changes in assessment. Although ACT has developed a letter and materials to educate families about ACT Aspire, this additional resource also includes a schedule for testing in South Carolina and reminds families that students will also be taking SCPASS in Science and Social Studies.
 
For additional family-friendly information about overall changes in testing, visit the EOC website.

2014-15 Accountability Manual Available
2014-15 Accountability Manual graphic
 
The  2014-15 Accountability Manual for schools and school districts is now available electronically. The manual, which is published by the SC Education Oversight Committee,
outlines what data will be published in the school and district report cards for the current school year.
New summative assessments in ELA and mathematics required by Act 200 of 2014 for school year 2014-15 and college and career ready assessments in high school mandated by Act 155 of 2014 necessitate changes in the reporting of student academic performance. State law requires that for school years 2014-15 and 2015-16, the EOC will not rate schools or districts but will instead report on student performance.
Copies of the Accountability Manual will be shipped to school districts in May 2015. For additional information or questions, contact Dana Yow at danay@eoc.sc.gov or 803-734-6148.
