Development of Predicted Paths for ACT Aspire Score Reports. WP-2014-06
This report focuses on the initial development of the predicted score paths for ACT Aspire reporting. The paths provide predicted score ranges for the next two years--as well as predicted ACT score ranges for tests administered at grades 9 and 10. Longitudinal ACT Aspire data for students tested in spring 2013 and spring 2014, as well as historical data from ACT's college and career readiness assessment system, are used to develop the predicted paths. Coverage rates of the predicted paths are examined, and proposed uses and limitations of the predicted paths are discussed.
