The federal No Child Left Behind Act requires that students be assessed each year in reading and math, grades 3 through 8, plus once in high school. In Washington State, students in grades 3-8 now take the Measurement of Student Progress (MSP) tests in May; and high school students take the High School Proficiency Exams (HSPE) in March and April. State tests are intended to assess whether students have sufficiently mastered a set of grade-level standards for a particular subject. In other words, “How many students have learned what they need to know – and can demonstrate that learning?” Scores for the MSP or HSPE are reported in 4 levels: “Exceeds Standard,” “Meets Standard,” “Below Standard,” and “Well Below Standard.”
The SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) is taken by 11th graders who plan to attend colleges and universities.
Enrollment in AP courses and student success on AP exams have become leading indicators of academic rigor in our high schools.
Of the nation's 21,000 high schools, about 11,500 offer at least one Advanced Placement course. The average participating high school offers six A.P. courses and administers 77 examinations.
