The West Virginia General Summative Assessment (WVGSA) for students in grades 3-8 is an online summative test given toward the end of the school year to measure student performance on the state’s content standards, which provide clear, consistent guidelines for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level.
Students in grades 3-8 are assessed in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics. Students in grades 5 and 8 also are assessed in science.
West Virginia students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 who have significant intellectual disabilities take the West Virginia Alternate Summative Assessment (WVASA), also known as the Dynamic Learning Maps, Alternate Summative Assessment. This assessment is a summative measure of student academic performance based on the West Virginia Alternate Academic Achievement Standards for English, mathematics, and science.
Students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 are assessed in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics. Students in grades 5, 8 and 11 also are assessed in science.
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires states to assess all students’ academic abilities. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) places a 1% cap on the number of students who may participate in a state summative alternate assessment. Students who meet the eligibility criteria have a significant cognitive disability, receives the majority of their instruction through the West Virginia Alternate Academic Achievement Standards, and requires extensive direct, individualized instruction and substantial supports to achieve measurable gains in the grade and age-appropriate curriculum.
The SAT School Day is the state’s general summative assessment for high school. It is administered on paper to all grade 11 students, except those who take the West Virginia Alternate Summative Assessment. The SAT School Day is given during a regular school day in the spring of each year. It is a nationally recognized college- and career-readiness assessment administered by the College Board and is accepted at colleges and universities throughout West Virginia and the nation for both college admissions and placement. It also can be used to qualify for the Promise Scholarship. Students have access to practice SAT tests through Khan Academy, which also provides West Virginia educators and students access to online content and resources to help prepare students for taking the SAT School Day.
