State of Alaska Resources: Includes information on assessments such as the Kindergarten Developmental Profile, Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM), English Language Proficiency Assessment (ACCESS for ELLs), and National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).
Alaska's new state assessment will be given this year starting March 28th. Students in grades 3-10 will take an assessment in both English Language Arts and Math. Students in grades 4, 8, and 10 will also take an assessment in Science.
From March 28th and April 7th our schools will be focused on this test. You can help by making sure that all children get to bed early and are ready to show what they know on this test!
The test will take between 1 and 2.5 hours. Tests for older students will take longer. Students will get breaks and have snacks provided.
