Posted May 17, 2006

What I dislike most about Schofield is how the students are seperated into different levels of classes based upon their state test scores. The state tests are not an indication how a child will do in the classroom. While my daughter was attending school there I had to fight with guidance all 3 years to get her into the 'higher' classes. She currently has a 4.5 GPA at Aiken High. The 'lower' academic classes tend to have kids with bad behavior in them. These kids do not have a role model of their peers in the classroom. Studies have proven that kids will work according to the ability of their peers. I believe integrating the students academically would help raise the scores of this school from a failing to a passing school. This practice was not done at Aiken Elementary and look at the success of this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in Writing, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) to test middle and high school students in Algebra I, Mathematics for the Technologies II, Biology I, English I, US History, and US History and Government. The EOCEP provides tests in high school core courses and for courses taken in middle school for high school credit. The EOCEP is a standards-based test program, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score a C or above.
