KCSD students with perfect state test scores recognized

October 3, 2019

Perfect Scores The Kershaw County School Board recognized ten students who earned a perfect score on a standardized test this past spring.

Only one student-- Dylann Larrabee from Wateree Elementary School—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. Dylann’s perfect score was in science.

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.

Nine students who earned a perfect 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 maximum scores on the math section of the test.
