      New Standard Assessment Implementation Information

      With the State Board of Education's adoption of new content standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts/Reading, new operational assessments are being developed. The chart below provides the timeline for the implementation of these new assessments.  In the transition of the new assessments, please note test scores will be delayed in the initial operational year to allow for standard setting.  Information on the delay and the impact on the timeline for reporting will be provided in late summer 2018.
