The Kershaw County School Board recognized 12 students who earned a perfect score on a standardized test this past spring.
Five students earned the maximum score on SC PASS, a statewide assessment for students in grades four, six and eight in science and grades five and seven in social studies.
SCPASS test items measure student performance on the South Carolina Academic Standards. The SCPASS test items are aligned to the standards for each subject and grade level. Standards outline what schools are expected to teach and what students are expected to learn.
