All students in grades 3-8 will take Missouri Grade Level assessments which correlate to their grade level and courses of study. In grades 3-6, students take Grade Level Assessments (GLA) in the areas of English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. Science is administered in grades 5 and 8. Middle School students enrolled in Algebra I will take the End-of-Course exam for this area.
All students in grades 9-12 will take End-of-Course assessments which correlate to their grade level and courses of study. Students take End-of-Course exams in Algebra I, Algebra II, Biology I, English II and Government.
All students in attendance on test administration days will take these assessments with the exception of the following exemptions:
- Students whose IEP teams have determined that the MAP-A is the appropriate assessment.
- English Language Learners (ELL) who have been in the United States 12 months or fewer at the time of the administration may be exempt from the ELA portion.
Additionally, students will take common assessments throughout the year to guide instruction and provide information on academic growth. A district assessment calendar will be available at the beginning of the school year and assessment results will be made available to parents. For more information about the District Assessment Program, refer to Board of Education Policy I-195-P.
