Due to the limited in-person time in the classroom last school year, last spring’s state testing was extended to this fall. This extension allowed flexibility for schools and teachers to best meet student’s needs.
This October we will be completing shortened versions of these assessments to minimize the impact on student’s classroom learning time while still being able to gather important information about each student’s performance level.
The schedule below shows which grade level will be testing in October. Each grade takes the Smarter Balance Assessment (SBA) based on what grade they were in last spring. Students will be taking the SBA in ELA and Math. Students in grades 6, 9, and 12 will also be taking the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS).
