The Performance Evaluation for Alaska’s Schools (PEAKS) and the Alaska Science Assessment are statewide summative assessments that encompass English language arts (ELA), mathematics, and science. The initial administration of PEAKS and the Alaska Science Assessment was in spring 2017. The following resources were created to help prepare students for the PEAKS and Alaska Science assessments. The Paper-Based Item Samplers, Student Tutorials, and OTT are available to students, educators, parents, and community members. DEED encourages everyone to utilize these tools to become familiar with the assessments.
