SY 24-25 Student Re-registration Window Opens on April 10

The Student Re-registration window opens on April 10, 2024. Parents should complete a re-registration for each currently enrolled student as soon as possible. During re-registration, parents must indicate whether their student will be withdrawing or returning for the upcoming school year.

College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS) Summative Assessments in DoDEA

With the implementation of the College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS) in English-language arts (ELA) 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. This school year (SY) 2023-2024, the CCRS summative assessments be administered during the spring 2024 administration window (for elementary, middle, and high school: March 11-May 17, 2024). Please contact the principal or school test coordinator for more information on the specific schedule of administration at your child's school.

Student Participation

For school year 2023-2024, DoDEA students will take the CCRS summative assessments in grades 3-8 for mathematics, grades 3-8 and 10 for ELA/Literacy, and in Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II courses. DoDEA students who are enrolled in advanced or accelerated courses will participate in the summative assessment for which the student has completed the course content.

CCRS Student Results

Student results from the CCRS summative assessments will be reported on an Individual Student Report (ISR). The ISR describes an individual student's performance in terms of overall results, performance level, and the CCRS. Results are reported according to five performance levels that delineate the knowledge, skills, and practices typical students can demonstrate based on their grade level or course standards. The performance levels are Level 5 (Exceeded expectations), Level 4 (Met expectations), Level 3 (Approached expectations), Level 2 (Partially met expectations), and Level 1 (Did not yet meet expectations).

Sample CCRS Summative Assessment Student Reports and Parent Guide

Features of the CCRS summative assessments include:

  • multiple choice (selected-response) items, open-ended (constructed-response) items, and technology-enhanced items,
  • extended writing tasks (in response to passages read by students) at every grade level and course within the ELA/Literacy assessment, and
  • transition to online mode of administration (exception for students with an Accommodations Plan that requires them to take the paper version of the summative assessment).
