11 KCSD students honored for perfect scores on spring standardized tests

11 KCSD students honored for perfect scores on spring standardized tests The Kershaw County School Board recognized 11 students who earned a perfect score on a standardized test this past spring.

Two students earned the maximum score on SC PASS, a statewide assessment for students in grades four, six and eight in science and grades five and seven in social studies.

SCPASS test items measure student performance on the South Carolina Academic Standards. The SCPASS test items are aligned to the standards for each subject and grade level. Standards outline what schools are expected to teach and what students are expected to learn.

Joshua Hancock (Lugoff-Elgin Middle) and Katherine Moore (Stover Middle) received a perfect score in SCPASS science.

Nine students who earned a maximum score on SC READY this past spring were also honored by the school board.

SC READY is a statewide assessment that includes tests in English language arts and mathematics. SC READY is administered to all students in grades three through eight. Items on SC READY are aligned with the South Carolina College- and Career-Ready Standards. All of the KCSD students recognized earned their perfect scores on the math section of the test.

SC READY honorees were Riley Grace Burch (Camden Elementary), Brooke Clark (Blaney Elementary now Stover Middle), Justin Guthrie, (Lugoff-Elgin Middle now Lugoff-Elgin High), James Houston (Pine Tree Hill Elementary now Camden Middle), Bryce Johnson (Blaney Elementary now Stover Middle), Dylann Larabee (Wateree Elementary), Sara Beth McCaskill (Lugoff-Elgin Middle), Griffin Proctor, (Lugoff Elementary) and Peyton Sims (Mt. Pisgah Elementary).

This is the second time Brooke Clark, Katherine Moore, Sara Beth McCaskill and Griffin Proctor have been recognized for earning a maximum score on a state standardized test in the past three years.
