Posted November 1, 2006

I am not pleased with the New Report Card this year. It reflexs only what the student did on the PACT or MAPS test not what they are dong now. Our children are only being taught what they need to know to pass these testes. Its not fair to the students, teachers, or parents. It only makes the school have a good report card.

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.
