ACT Aspire


From grades 3 through 10, ACT Aspire® offers a unique, connected approach to measuring student progress. The system is anchored by the ACT® test for students in grades 11 and 12 and provides empirically based readiness benchmarks at every grade.

ACT Aspire can be used to highlight progress toward the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards and Benchmarks and outcome data links to the reporting categories of most state standards. This means ACT Aspire measures student progress using the most comprehensive academic guideposts available.

Our solution is predictive, providing a two-year projection of student growth that enables teachers to craft an optimal academic experience for every learner. ACT Aspire Early High School also predicts subject and Composite score ranges on the ACT. The cross-grade connection and predictive capabilities separate ACT Aspire from all other assessment systems.

Research shows that today and in the future, good jobs will require a greater level of knowledge and skills after high school. ACT Aspire can help all your learners measure their progress toward the readiness they will need for future success, whether they transition to college or career. ACT Aspire is the first digital, longitudinal assessment system to fully connect student performance with readiness benchmarks from the elementary grades through early high school.


Assessment is not the endgame of learning. It is a toolset consisting of summative and periodic components. No single element, no matter how well-intentioned or detailed, can match a complete assessment solution.
