With the implementation of the College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS) in literacy and mathematics, DoDEA has adopted new CCRS-aligned summative assessments to measure student mastery of content standards taught for the grade level and/or course. The first administration of these CCRS-aligned measures, which will be called CCRS summative assessments, will occur during the Spring 2018 administration window (April 9- May 25, 2018). Please contact the principal or school test coordinator for more information on the specific schedule of administration at your child's school.
For school year 2017-18, DoDEA students will take the CCRS summative assessments in mathematics for students in grades 3-6 and Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II courses and Language Arts/Literacy for students in grades 6-8 and 10. DoDEA students who are enrolled in advanced or accelerated courses will participate in the summative assessment for which they have completed the course content.
