NOTE! New Hampshire NECAP test scores and updated rankings for the 2013-14 school year were recently posted to SchoolDigger!
The New Hampshire Department of Education, Rhode Island Department of Education, and Vermont Department of Education have developed a common set of Grade-Level Expectations, known as the New England Common Assessment Program Grade-Level Expectations (NECAP GLEs), and test specifications in Mathematics, Reading, and Writing. Building on the success of the NECAP collaboration in Mathematics, Reading, and Writing, the states have developed common assessment targets and test specifications for Science. Grade-Span Expectations (GSEs) for high school students in Mathematics, Reading and Writing have been developed for grades 9-10 and 11-12. The GSEs include expectations that are assessed on the State assessment and others that will be a local curriculum and assessment option. All GLEs and GSEs are incorporated into the NH Curriculum/Frameworks documents approved by the State Board in June 2006.NECAP is administered in October in grades 3-8 and 11 in Mathematics and Reading. Writing is assessed in grades 5, 8, and 11 at the same time. The three week test window begins on October 1 or the first school day after October 1 if it falls on a weekend. Science is administered in grades 4, 8, and 11 each year during the last three weeks of May.Source: New Hampshire Dept of Education - NECAP
