EVANSTON — All Evanston High School students will spend the morning of Tuesday, April 23, in testing, according to a release from the school district. The students will attend their normal classes in the afternoon.
“Due to the important information this testing will provide, please have your son or daughter here and on time,” the release said. “Also, your student needs to bring a calculator and two No. 2 pencils.”
Descriptions of the planned testing are as follows:
• Ninth grade: The EXPLORE test is to help ninth graders gain an understanding of their readiness for college, make the most of their opportunities in high school and beyond, and guide them as they start thinking about future educational and career planning.
• 10th grade: The PLAN test is a midpoint review of academic progress, while there is still time to make any necessary intervention to keep students on track toward their educational and career goals.
• 11th grade: The ACT is a national college admissions examination that consists of subject area tests in math, English, reading, science and writing.
• 12th grade: The Compass test is an untimed, computer-based test put out by ACT that is used to help colleges determine if students can be placed in a college class, or if they have to do a remedial class first to get ready for a college class.
