As partners in your child’s education, we want to ensure they are prepared for each step in their journey. This is why we are administering the ACT Aspire to your student in the after school program. ACT Aspire gives us information on how your child is progressing at his or her current grade level. Such information will help us tailored academic programs for your child. Teachers and administrators can, in turn, understand whether we need to intervene in areas where a child is falling behind, as well as determine if a student is ready for further enrichment opportunities.
ACT Aspire assesses the skill set, abilities, and knowledge your student has now, and helps us to create a good trajectory towards college readiness. If you think that it’s too early to think about college readiness, ACT Aspire reminds us that it starts at third grade. It is not meant to be a test to prepare for, nor do the results of ACT Aspire affect an individual’s chances of getting into any particular college or university. But it will help parents to make plans for their child based on multi year data provided by the test.
Your student will be taking the ACT Aspire in all the areas of English, math, reading, science and writing assessment in Legend Learning’s after school program. Our academically rigorous after school program in Cupertino will prepare your in the development in all five areas of English, math, reading, science, and writing.

About ACT Aspire
At ACT Aspire LLC, we develop Summative, Interim, and Classroom testing solutions to help craft well-informed student pathways to college and career. We do this by connecting student growth from grades 3-8 and early high school in the context of college and career readiness.
THE FIRST OF ITS KIND
Our solution is unique because it is a connected approach. ACT Aspire is anchored by the ACT®, now the leading college entrance assessment. Such continuity is unmatched by other systems.
Our approach goes beyond other solutions because the ACT Aspire Assessment System will provide standards-based reporting — with reporting categories based on the ACT College Readiness Standards — and aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
This means ACT Aspire measures student progress using the most comprehensive academic guideposts available. Thus, we’ve positioned our solution to add an exceptional dimension of actionable informational insight to your college and career readiness initiative.
COLLEGE & CAREER READINESS
Through evidence-based design principles, we craft items to measure college and career readiness skills and knowledge. Importantly, ACT has years of actual student data that we use to validate the successful alignment of our assessments.
These evidence-based, validated test development procedures and principles are in place and have been used to develop ACT Aspire items and forms. Our development team also works with subject matter experts in each content area to verify the alignment of items to standards and item classifications.
