Assessments

Spring is the time of year when our schools administer state required assessments.  These assessments are used for state and federal accountability, to monitor student progress toward grade level standards, as well as an option for high school students to meet their Graduation Pathways requirement. The English/Language Arts (ELA) and Math Smarter Balanced Assessments are administered in grades 3 through 8 and 10, while the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS) is administered in grades 5, 8, and 11. 

‚ÄčThe testing schedule will be published when it is available.

Make sure your student brings a fully charged Chromebook to school every day they are testing.

If you have any questions about your student’s spring assessments or schedules, please feel free to contact ‚Äčtheir teacher or the testing coordinator, Amy Smith, asmith@nsd.org.
