Testing Information

College Board Exams (SAT Reasoning Test & ACT) are required by many colleges and universities as part of meeting admission requirements. Most universities accept either test. Either the ACT or SAT exam should first be taken at the end of the junior year. Registration deadline for each test is five weeks prior to the test date. Check with your school counselor or on the exam posters in the Career Center for this information. You may also take the exams at other sites during the year. Registration and preparation booklets may be obtained in the Career Center. Fee waivers are available if the cost of these tests will cause a hardship. Free testing practice is available at the Casa Grande City Library and online. Note: All test fees listed reflect the amount at the time of posting and are subject to change.

ASVAB

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is given to juniors and seniors in the fall. Taking this test does NOT enlist you in the military but will give you valuable career interest and aptitude insight into yourself. This test is voluntary and free for both juniors and seniors.

AZSci

AZSci is a Standards-Based Assessment that measures student proficiency of the Arizona Academic Content Standard in Science. It meets federal requirements for student assessment. It is administered in the spring to students in Grades 5, 8, and 11.

CogAT

The Gifted Department offers the Cognitive Abilities Test as an evaluation instrument for identifying students who are eligible for gifted education services. This test is organized into three separate batteries: Verbal, Quantitative, and Non-Verbal. Referral for this test may be received by students, teachers, and parents. This test is administered at each site in the fall. Any student may take the test that has not been tested within the last 12 months.

PSAT

The Counseling Department recommends that college-bound 10th and 11th grade students take the PSAT Test. The top scoring one half of one percent of the 11th grade students taking the PSAT can qualify for National Merit Scholarships. Eleventh grade African American students may request entry to the National Achievement Program (over 700 Achievement Scholarship awards) when they take the PSAT. Not only is the PSAT good practice for the SAT, but it is also used as a determining factor for AP potential and can be used to compare a student’s academic skills with other college-bound students. The cost to take the PSAT was $16.00 per student last year; however, arrangements can be made in the Counseling Department if money is an issue. The PSAT Test is offered in October.
