Due to the COVID pandemic, the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) postponed spring 2021 tests until fall of 2021. The tests administered in the fall of 2021 were reflective of the grade students were in during the 2020-21 school year.
OSPI is currently resuming its normal testing schedule, with the administration of the Smarter Balanced (SBA) English Language Arts, Mathematics, and the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS). Spring 2022 tests will be reflective of the grade students are in during this 2021-22 school year. See below for details.
Our school is scheduled to take the spring assessments: May 16-18 and May 23-26. Tests for running start students and make up tests will take place May 31-June 2
Spring 2022 Assessments
10th grade Smarter Balanced Assessments in ELA and Math
Students having not met a graduation pathway will take Smarter Balanced Assessments in ELA and Math (these students will receive individual letters notifying them of their testing status)
All 11th grade Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science
The full testing schedule for MSHS can be found HERE.
The SBA and WCAS are year-end summative assessmentsdesigned tohighlight student learning achievement and growth in ELA, math, and science. Summative assessments include a computer adaptive test and performance tasks that challenge students to apply their knowledge and skills to respond to real-world problems.
From these assessments, we gain valuable information and monitor student progress to ensure all students master the Common Core State Standards. Additionally, the data helps determine if students are prepared for college and career opportunities beyond high school and respond to any needs that surface.
Student assessment scores will be available in Skyward Family Access as soon as their score reports are released from OSPI. We will notify you when this occurs.
Our goal is to make sure your child leaves us with a solid foundation of skills and a future full of opportunities. We appreciate your partnership in ensuring students are present and well-rested during their scheduled testing dates.
