Parents of 8th Grade students:
The EXPLORE Test Results are being sent home today, Thursday, 12/10/09. Along with their score report, the actual test questions are being sent home so that you can go over any problems your child did not get correct. Their score report tells the answer they chose and what the correct answer was. This is a great tool to help your student learn from the test. Please contact the teacher for an explanation if you do not understand the question your child did not get correct. (Last year teachers were asked to go over the problems that some students got incorrect during classroom time.) The EXPLORE is the practice test that PREPARES STUDENTS FOR THE ACT TEST. The ACT Test (along with the student's grade point average) determines whether or not students receive the LOTTERY SCHOLARSHIP. They need a score of 21 or a 3.0 grade point average. They will take another practice test, the PLAN Test, in 10th Grade. Then they will start taking the ACT Test and can take it more than once to try to improve their score. Gayle Mayfield
