Summative Assessment Reporting
In the ACT Aspire development process, we worked with educators, students, and parents, to better understand their reporting requirements. Careful effort ensures that the final product will connect teaching and learning in ways that are valuable to all levels of stakeholders. To that end, ACT Aspire reporting philosophy follows these guiding principles, based on User-Centered Design.
Reports display information in a clean, direct manner — with both numerical and graphical representations supported by descriptive text. Thus, the full range of faculty – from novice through expert — can immediately gain actionable insights.
We report a score scale and an “ACT Readiness Benchmark” for English, reading, math and science at each grade to provide additional perspectives on student readiness. Users can use the new ACT Readiness Benchmarks from grades 3-7 to determine if students are on track for readiness at the appropriate grade/subject levels.
