Jackson State Testing Schedule

Jackson’s State Testing Schedule


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.


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.

Tutorials, and Online Tools Training (OTT)

  • The Online Tools Training (OTT) module on the DRC INSIGHT Portal simulates the testing environment and allows students to practice using the testing software and the tools available to students during testing, such as the highlighter, magnifier, and calculator. Schools should review the OTT with students in advance of testing. A DRC INSIGHT account is not needed to access the OTT.
  • The OTT and Online Testing Video Tutorials are available on the same devices as the testing platform. Acceptable devices include Windows, Mac, and Chromebook (all using the Chrome browser) as specified in DRC’s current system requirements on the DRC INSIGHT Portal.
