The ASPIRE measures student readiness in 21st century skills necessary for success in and out of school. The results of the assessment are NOT sent to colleges, but are used here to identify areas that teachers can address more fully in the classroom. The best preparation for the test is a good night’s sleep and healthy breakfast!
