TRIO includes eight programs targeted to serve and assist low-income individuals, first-generation college students, and individuals with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to post baccalaureate programs. TRIO also includes a training program for directors and staff of TRIO projects.

We are required by the Department of Education to test our students and show that our program is indeed making a difference in their academic skills.

Additionally, testing helps us chart the progress of individual students and plan a curriculum that is responsive to their needs. Any time that tests are administered, we ask that all students be rested, alert, and ready to do their best. Any student whose scores are lower than previous testing may be required to re-test. To remain in good standing with the Upward Bound Program, participants must take all required tests.

If a student has a documented reason for not testing at the scheduled time, he or she must notify Upward Bound BEFORE the scheduled date and arrange for testing at an alternate time.Non-Residential 2014UPWARD BOUND PROGRAMACADEMIC PROCEDURESPre/Post TestsAll Upward Bound participants are required to take the pretests and posttests administered by their instructors in summer program classes. These tests are used to measure what the student learns in these classes over the course of the summer program. During the Summer Non-residential these test may be given electronically or by handout.

Students will not be permitted to participate in any classes or program activities until they have:

Taken the pretests for all classes. Take the posttests at the end of the summer program to remain in good standing with the program.

Students who do not complete all tests to the best of their ability will be placed on probation or given alternate student status.
