Test score data source: Alaska Department of Education and Early Development

About the Alaska Measures of Progress: The Alaska Department of Education & Early Development has selected the Achievement & Assessment Institute (AAI) of Kansas to develop and administer assessments for Alaska’s public schools. AAI will provide summative and interim assessments for grades 3-10 that are aligned to the Alaska English Language Arts and Mathematics Standards, adopted in 2012. AAI will provide custom computer-based assessments, with a paper/pencil format for schools that are not ready to administer online tests. The new assessment is called Alaska Measures of Progress, or AMP.

These tests tell us how well Alaskan students, schools, and districts are meeting the Alaska English language arts and mathematics standards. State law and the federal school accountability requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act require statewide assessments. Test scores will be used in school and district accountability (Alaska School Performance Index star ratings and Annual Measureable Objectives) and by districts for their educator evaluation systems. Alaska will discontinue the current assessment, the Standards Based Assessments (SBAs). The SBAs assess our former standards, the Alaska Grade Level Expectations. They will be administered for the last time in April 2014.

The science assessment is not part of this new contract. The science test, which is paper/pencil, will be administered to grades 4, 8, and 10.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
