Testing

Academic assessment is absolutely essential to a strong educational program. The results of these tests provide valid and reliable data needed to evaluate the effectiveness of your educational program. The required testing for all students consists of:

  • Pennsylvania State School Assessment Tests (PSSA) as established by the Legislature will be administered at the required time and grade levels.

  • Final exams will be administered at the end of each school term in the following academic areas: English, Mathematics, Science, Foreign Languages, and Social Studies. The grade for each of these tests will appear as the Final Exam grade on the student report card and will be equivalent to a nine-week grade in computing the final grade for each course.

Virtually all colleges and universities throughout the U.S. will accept either ACT or SAT scores.One advantage of the ACT is that you don't have to report your scores to colleges unless you choose to do so.

The ACT includes four testing areas: English, reading, math and science. Students also receive career-planning information based on an interest inventory they complete when they register for the test.
