Grade 11 SAT / State Testing for ELA & Math
The SAT exam is now the N.H. State Assessment for all 11th grade students. The New Hampshire Department of Education received approval to replace the 11th grade Smarter Balanced statewide assessment with the College Board’s SAT in the spring of 2016. This plan is an important step in the Department of Education's commitment to reduce the amount of time spent on statewide standardized testing for public high school students and ensure that all students are prepared to succeed in college and careers.
The SAT exam focuses on the skills and knowledge that colleges most want. These tests are what many colleges and universities require as part of their application process.
The SAT will cover English language arts (reading, writing) and mathematics and will be at no cost for every 11th grade student required to take the assessment. The state-sponsored test will not include the SAT Essay, which is optional, but in the past the school district has funded this portion of the test for all students. The NH Department of Education will submit the registration files on behalf of schools; therefore, students do not need to register themselves for this particular SAT exam.
???? Students will meet with Ms. Lemoine prior to the testing day to create College Board accounts, if they do not currently have one. Once the student's personal account is created, students will be able to log-in to check their tests scores, sign up for any future SAT exams, and to indicate which colleges they would like their test scores be sent to once they begin the college application process.
Grade 11 NH SAS for Science
Grade 11 students will take the new N.H. Statewide Assessment System for science (formerly known as N.E.C.A.P.) in the spring time.
All students in grade 9 and 10 will take the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) three times during the school year - fall, winter, spring. The tests measure academic growth in reading, Language Arts, and math. Each test is administered during the school day.
