NOTE! West Virginia WV Assessment test scores and updated rankings for the 2014-15 school year were recently posted to SchoolDigger!
WESTEST 2 is gone, and the West Virginia General Summative Assessment, which includes the Smarter Balanced assessments in mathematics and ELA, has taken its place. Public school students in grades 3 - 11 will take the test between April 1 and June 24. The General Summative Assessment also includes a science assessment for students in grades 4, 6 and 10.The test is engaging, interactive and uniquely accessible with questions that require high level thinking, look like real life problems, and are similar to classroom work. Most important, it offers evidence that informs action in the classroom.Assessments provide valuable information to parents, teachers and students about where a student may need more help as well as areas of success. Also, the results serve as a checkup on a student's progress toward meeting the goal of being college or career ready by graduation. In addition, teachers use individual test results to guide their instruction.Source: West Virginia Department of Education
