ACT Aspire FAQ for VIRTUAL Sophomores


CHS Virtual Sophomores - ACT Aspire Frequently Asked Questions

When is testing?
Friday, April 16th and Friday, April 23rd
8:00 a.m. - 11:40 p.m.
Doors lock at 8:10. Once testing directions begin, late students will have to wait for the next session to begin.

Will I be safe at the school?
We are capping room capacity at 10 students and requiring social distancing of desks.
Masks are required at all times.

What do I need to bring?
Face mask
Fully charged, school-issued Chromebook (For virtual students who use their own device, leave it at home. We have a limited supply of school devices on hand for your use.)

Where do I need to go when I get there?
Park in student parking between the auditorium and the arena. Car riders may drop off in the roundabout at the auditorium. Drop off at the front of the main building is discouraged as the front doors are locked. Virtual students may also ride the bus to campus.

Wait in the courtyard behind the main building. Room assignments will be posted on the lower lobby windows and staff will be in the courtyard before 8:00 and in the lobby after 8:00 to assist.

How many tests are there?
There are two tests on April 16th and three on April 23rd.

Do I need a calculator or pencil?
A sanitized, yellow TI-84 will be provided for you. Pencils for scratch work are provided.

What do I do with my phone and/or smartwatch during the test?
State law requires all student devices to be turned completely off during the testing sessions and when secure materials are present. Students will power down all electronics and store them in their backpacks or bags, or stored securely by the testing room supervisor. Students will be able to access their phones following the final session each day.

What time can I leave?
The standard-time testing sessions are set to end at 11:40 a.m. both days. Students who drive or are car riders may leave at that dismissal. Students who ride the bus will go to the cafeteria for lunch and then stay as a blended learning day student.

Is there a make-up testing day?
All make-ups will take place Friday, April 30. More information will be sent after April 23.

Who do I contact with additional questions?
