The state report card contains district and school data on student achievement (including disaggregated), participation rates, accountability, and teacher qualifications.
Spring state assessments will begin soon for students in grades 3 – 8 and 10. English language arts (ELA) and math are measured with Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA). Science is measured with the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS) in grades 5, 8 and 11.
The results from the state assessments will help us improve instructional practices and give families information about how their student is doing and where additional help might be needed. The assessments also give us a more accurate picture of whether students are on track to be ready for college or career by graduation. For students in grade 10, the Smarter Balanced tests can also be used as a graduation pathway.
Results are reported by September of each year. Final reports will be provided to families if their student participated in state testing.
Most students will take the assessments online using their district issued device. Your school will communicate the testing schedule with you.
