Press release submitted by Moline School District No. 40



Very soon, juniors across the state of Illinois will be taking the Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE), a required graduation component. Moline High School will be holding an informational meeting about these very important tests on Tuesday, February 19th, at 6:30 p.m. in the Moline High School auditorium.

The PSAE will be administered over two days, April 23rd and 24th. An exciting addition to the PSAE this year is the WorkKeys ® Locating Information assessment. This assessment, along with the WorkKeys ® Reading for Information and Applied Mathematics assessments, provides students with the opportunity to earn ACT's National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC). WorkKeys ® assessments measure "real world" skills that employers believe are critical to job success. The NCRC demonstrates achievement of workplace ready skills which are sought after by employers nationwide.

Students and staff have been working very hard all year to prepare juniors for these very important required assessments. Come learn how your son or daughter can benefit from receiving a NCRC and what they need to continue to do to prepare for the PSAE. For more information, contact Wayne Cabel, Assistant Principal, at 743-8803.
