Asset Results Meeting

By Jessica Capps, Guidance Counselor

Students who took the Asset on our campus October 28th will receive an explanation of their results Thursday, December 16th at 9:00 am in the senior cafeteria.  All students who took this assessment are strongly encouraged to attend and participate in the explanation of the results. It is the student's responsibility to attend the meeting. 

What Is ASSET?
The ASSET® program is a series of short placement tests developed by ACT that lets you and your school work together to help you succeed in your educational program. ASSET helps you identify your strengths as well as the knowledge and skills you will need in order to succeed in specific subject areas. ASSET also helps your school use this information to guide you toward classes that strengthen and build logically upon your current knowledge and skills.

How Does ASSET Work?
ASSET has three tests of basic skills in writing, reading, and numerical reasoning, plus more advanced tests in algebra and geometry. The ASSET program also offers the Educational Planning Form, which supplements your ASSET test scores by providing your institution with information about your educational needs and goals.

How Are ASSET Scores Used?
ASSET is not used like a traditional test battery. There is generally no “passing score.” Rather, ASSET scores indicate areas in which you are strong and areas in which you may need help. Thus, ASSET can identify problems in major subject areas before they disrupt your educational progress, giving you the opportunity to prepare more effectively for needed courses.

You can use scores from ASSET tests and the information from the Educational Planning Form to prepare a course of study that will be appropriate, relevant, and meaningful for you.
