News Release: U.S. Department of Education Approves South Carolina Waiver to Suspend Student Assessments
For spring 2020, South Carolina will not administer any of the following assessment programs:
SC READY (English language arts and mathematics in grades 3–8);
SCPASS (science in grades 4 and 6);
End-of-Course Examination Program (English, Algebra, Biology, United States History and the Constitution) the requirement that these examinations count 20 percent has been waived;
Prekindergarten assessments; and
The SCDE is working closely with the vendors of college entrance, college credit, and workforce readiness assessments to explore innovative approaches, such as testing online. To the extent possible, districts may administer these assessments to students who may need them for post-secondary or employment aspirations. These assessments include Advanced Placement, SAT, ACT, and WIN Ready to Work. Should these assessments be able to be administered, they will continue to be paid for by the state.
