Assessments


The 2014-2015 school year marked the first year that students in grade 3-8 and high school took the PARCC assessments in English Language Arts and mathematics. PARCC complements, but does not replace, the existing Maryland School Assessment, which assesses performance in science in grades 5 and 8; the Alternate Maryland School Assessment (for students with disabilities); or the Maryland High School Assessments in Biology and Government. In addition students take other assessments such as the National Assessment of Educational Progress and college Readiness tests like AP and SAT. Students who are identified as English learners also take an annual English language proficiency assessment.

Your state results on these assessments are summarized here. Clicking on the summarized results will lead you to graphs and more details. Clicking on the grade level will show you results by student group.

The new assessments replace the Maryland School Assessments in English and Mathematics in grades 3-8, and replace the High School Assessments in Algebra and English 10 for all students not graduating in 2015.
