Assessments During School Closure

The long-term school closure will impact our assessments this spring. Please review the updates below. 

State Assessments: OSPI is canceling all state testing for the 2019–20 school year. This includes the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA), the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS), the Washington Access to Instruction and Measurement (WA-AIM), and WIDA Alternate ACCESS for English learners. ELPA was in progress when the closure was announced. This is also canceled.

District-based Assessments: We will determine the adjustment of the spring assessment window after we return. 

Advanced Placement: This window will be moved to the later testing window that College Board determines for districts.
