Spring 2024 State Testing Information

Concrete School District students will begin required state testing in February.

The state requires students in grades 3-8 and 10 to take the Smarter Balanced (SBA) or the Washington Access to Instruction and Measurement (WA-AIM) tests in math and English Language Arts (ELA). Students in grades 5, 8, and 11 will also take the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS).

These assessments provide an accurate and objective evaluation of a student’s progress and development toward college and career readiness benchmarks. They encourage critical thinking and problem-solving, essential skills for success in any future endeavor. Moreover, the test scores furnish educators and districts with valuable information that can be used to enhance the quality of education and improve the learning outcomes of our students. 

Multilingual learners in Washington state are screened and tested annually using WIDA assessments

The SBA in math and ELA can be used to meet the graduation pathway requirement if a student scores a Level 3 or Level 4.
