I have attending meeting and observed the children at school. This school is in terrible shape. Instruction is weak.

Students have to be taught to think critically and express themselves well verbally as well as on paper in the areas of math and Language arts. I am not surprised by the scores on the PACT.

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.
