8-4 students will take the EXPLORE test Friday, October 25 and make-up's will be held for 8-1 and 8-3. This serves as the entry measure of academic progress in ACT's College and Career Readiness System. The EXPLORE program is a curriculum-based assessment program designed to help 8th grade students gain an understanding of their readiness for college, and guide them as they start thinking about future educational career planning. It allows them to establish a four year program of study early, that will help them achieve their career and educational goals. EXPLORE assesses academic progress, provides and early indicator of college readiness, helps students understand and begin to explore the wide range of career options open to them. EXPLORE standards, like all ACT College Readiness Standards, are aligned with the Common Core State Standards.
