State of Alaska
Assessment Results

Using Data

Beginning in Spring 2005, the Standards Based Assessment (SBA) was instituted for grades 3 through 9 replacing the Benchmark at grades 3, 6, and 8, therefore cut scores were reestablished in 2005 for these new exams. The SBA is a test based on Alaska state standards and compliant with state and federal statutes. Comparison between these assessment results should be executed with caution to avoid misinterpretation.
