Utah Aspire Plus: Assessing Students' College Readiness

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


The Utah Aspire Plus is a first-of-its-kind custom assessment measuring student knowledge, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills in reading, English, math and science. The assessment consists of both ACT Aspire and Utah teacher-written questions and is administered to 9th and 10th grade students. The Utah Aspire Plus provides parents, students, and educators with information about student academic proficiency, academic growth, and college and career readiness. This presentation will review the purpose of the assessment, the content areas and Utah Core Standards assessed, and information on how ‘college readiness’ is measured and reported on Utah Aspire Plus reports. We will also discuss ways educators can analyze and interpret data from Utah Aspire Plus and how the ACT assessment standards align with the Utah Core Standards. Suggestions on how classroom teachers can use Utah Aspire Plus assessment results to inform instructional practices will be shared.
