1. Interest Inventory
Each academic section is timed at 30 minutes. Small breaks will be given between each section to help students perform at their best.
· On Monday, September 16th students will attend an assembly to learn the importance of doing their best during this test. We will also take a short time to answer any questions students may.
· Tuesday, September 17th all 8th grade students will take the interest inventory survey. This survey connects personal interests to potential careers.
· Wednesday, September 18th will be the academic portion of the test. We will start promptly at 8:00 A.M. Students who are late or need to check out will not be allowed to test on this day. A make-up day will be scheduled immediately after the test for the rest of the students.
The results from this test will be discussed during your students PCCR (Plan for College and Career Readiness) meeting with your students guidance counselor starting in November, running thru February. This test will be a talking point during this meeting discussing high school course plan and post-secondary training. It is important for your student to do their best on this test.
It is imperative that all students be on time and ready to test. A good night’s sleep and breakfast is recommended for your student. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding the Explore Test please feel free to contact the counseling center at 801-412-2360. Thank you for the support of your student. We are truly fortunate to live in such a great community.
