Testing Information

AIMSweb

AIMSweb is a universal screening, progress monitoring, and data management system that supports Response to Intervention (RTI) and tiered instruction. AIMSweb uses brief, valid, and reliable measures of reading and math performance for grades K-12, which can be generalized to any curriculum. AIMSweb efficiently screens all students, identifying those at risk for academic failure and enabling early intervention.

HSGQE

This is a test that all students must pass in Alaska in order to graduate with a diploma from high school. The test has three different parts: reading, writing, and math. Students take this test for the first time in the spring of 10th grade. If a student does not pass one or more parts, the student is able to retake the test in the fall and spring of 11th and, if need be, 12th grade.

MAP

MAP a computer adaptive assessment test, provides educators with the detailed information they need to build curriculum and meet their students’ needs. Each child learns differently. So they have developed computerized adaptive assessments that test differently, allowing teachers to see their students as individuals – each with their own base of knowledge. With flexible delivery options, our assessments can scale to fit your needs. As a student responds to questions, the test responds to the student, adjusting up or down in difficulty. The result is a rewarding experience for the student, and a wealth of detailed information for teachers, parents and administrators.

SBA

All public school students in grades 3-9 are required to take the Standards Based Assessments. Students in grade 10 take the combined 10th Grade SBA/HSGQE. SBAs test the following areas Reading, writing, and mathematics. For grades 4, 8, and 10, science must follow mathematics.

WorkKeys

WorkKeys targets skill development important for every type of employment. WorkKeys tests have a clear way to demonstrate student abilities to employers. This evaluation focuses on Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading for Information.

The results help students see what jobs they have the skills for and to improve the skills in which they are weak. Students use their results to get a better picture of their chances for success in the workforce and to improve areas where their skills are weak. The test scores along with various other criteria help determine if a student is eligible for the Alaska Performance Scholarship.
