The Arkansas Comprehensive Testing, Assessment, and Accountability Program (ACTAAP). A.C.A. 6-15-401 et seq., is the state law that requires the state of Arkansas to test public school students.
Research shows that the earlier we measure progresss toward meeting educational standards, the more we can strengthen a student's chances to stya on target enabling him/her to succeed and be college and career ready upon graduating high school. These assessments ensure that all students that all students in Arkansas public schools have an equal opportunity to demonstrate grade-level and subject area academic proficiency through the application of knowledge and skills in the core academic subjects consistent with state curriculm frameworks, and performance standards.

The Iowa tests are paper-based norm-referenced tests which measure the performance of individual Arkansas students against a national group. These tests will identify students who may need additional instruction in language arts, math and science.
ACT Aspire is an online criterion-referenced test given to students in grades 3-10 in English, reading, writing, math and science. Criterion-reference tests measure a student's knowledge of standard specific skills. ACT Aspire replaces the PARCC assessment that was given in 2015. The total end-of-year testing time for ACT Aspire is 4-4 1/2 hours. These tests are administered over a five week testing window. Parents will receive score reports that will provide information regarding each student's individual progress.
