Q: What do the tests measure?

Posted by:

A: State assessments consist of items aligned to subject and grade level expectations. In brief, they measure progress students have made in each tested subject. Please keep in mind these assessments are only one measure of student progress. The test is like an annual checkup—an opportunity to observe how students are doing. Just as doctors check height and weight, teachers and families use these tests to check how students are performing in tested subjects.
