NEWS REGARDING THE NEW ASSESSMENT REQUIREMENT FOR HIGH SCHOOL
The requirement that students pass the High School Graduation
Qualifying Exam (HSGQE) has recently been repealed.
Students in their junior year are now required to take either a
College Readiness Assessment such as the SAT or ACT, or they can
choose to take the Work Keys (Career-Readiness Exam). It is
important to note that this is a graduation requirement! The
good news is that because this is now a graduation requirement,
there is no cost to the student for the first test.
Please have your student return the CCRA selection form as soon as
possible. All students who have not returned their forms to their
English teacher or their counselor by Monday morning, October 6,
2014 will be assigned the WorkKeys test.
Also, the state of Alaska is providing free test practice materials,
among other things. The practice tests include the PSAT, SAT, ACT,
the GED, and various AP exams. You can find this information at the
Service Library resource page:
