The new testing program for South Carolina is known as the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) It will be aligned to the state academic standards and will include tests in writing, English language arts (reading and research), mathematics, science, and social studies for grades 3-8.

South Carolina is one of two "undecided" states to to use the Smarter Balanced Test. It currently appears South Carolina has decided to use ACT/Aspire in grades 3-8 and the ACT college-entrance exam in grade 11. It will issue a request-for-proposals for a test for 2015-16.
