Calera High School is an OK EPAS school. This program includes three tests given at key transition points from grade eight through college entrance. The tests include EXPLORE for 8th Grade, PLAN for 10th Grade, and the ACT for Juniors & Seniors.  EXPLORE and PLAN are given at the school and free to 8th and 10th grade students, but for the ACT, students must choose a test site, register individually, and pay a registration fee.
 
EXPLORE and PLAN are provided free by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education to Oklahoma schools who agree to test ALL 8th and 10th  grade students. The skills tested on EXPLORE and PLAN are taken directly from the ACT, and are designed to match the age and grade level of students taking the tests. The scores let you know where you are as you prepare to take the ACT as juniors and seniors. Directions and format for the tests are the same as ACT. Each includes tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science; identifying your academic strengths and weaknesses and measuring your progress in the skills you need for success in college and work. 
 
Score reports for EXPLORE and PLAN include English, Math, Reading, Science and Composite scores and your Estimated Score Ranges for PLAN and ACT.   A College Readiness report compares your planned high school courses and your scores to ACT benchmarks (how you compare to students who have been successful in college).  A questionnaire in the tests asks about your interests and academic needs. The World-of-Work map in the score report shows how your interests match up with careers and college majors. You, your parents, your teachers, and your counselor can use this information to guide your choices of a college and a career. They can also find out what changes could be made to improve your school and your experiences there.
