Fort Calhoun Junior-Senior High assesses each student’s abilities, aptitudes, and interests so the best possible selection of courses and activities can be made. In an effort to help a student prepare for his/her occupation of interest, we encourage students to focus their energy on courses that pertain to their distinct interests and talents.
These assessments are used as a part of the process in which we guide students in course selection. By no means do they define what a student can or cannot achieve, nor do they determine what occupation a student will have when they move beyond our walls.
These are the assessments used for each of our grade levels:
- Grade 7: NeSA, NWEA
- Grade 8: NeSA, EXPLORE
- Grade 9: NWEA
- Grade 10: PLAN
- Grade 11: NeSA, NWEA, PSAT, ASVAB, ACT
- Grade 12: ASVAB, ACT/SAT or Asset
As students prepare for assessments, we encourage them to do the following:
- Get rest the night before.
- Eat a healthy breakfast.
- Bring a positive attitude.
- Give it your best effort!
