ACT/ASPIRE TEST RESULTS
All schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago began administering the ACT/ASPIRE test to all students in Grades 3 to 8. The test is designed to work with the suite of ACT tests to help students advance along the path to college and career readiness.
The table below identifies the ASPIRE benchmark scores, Archdiocese of Chicago average scores, national averages and the St. Germaine average for each grade in each sub-section of the test.
The “readiness” level identifies the areas where each group met or exceeded the ACT/ASPIRE benchmark scores.
A detailed analysis of St. Germaine scores is available. It identifies areas of strength and areas for improvement. Teachers and staff are using the data to guide their instructional practices with the students. For more information, please contact the school office.
