Students in grades 9-10 will take the Utah Aspire Plus assessment this school year. This first-of-its-kind solution is a hybrid, meaning it contains test questions from the Utah and ACT item bank. Because this test is a hybrid, it will allow for a reliable predictive ACT score for students while maintaining alignment with the Utah core standards. The test will measure reading, English, math, and science producing sub-scores for each subject as well as an overall composite score.
More detailed information is available on the Utah State Board of Education’s Assessment site.
