The NGSS-aligned assessment will be administered to students in grades 5, 8, and 11 unless a student qualifies for alternate assessment or an exemption for medical reasons. We intend for this test to be administered via computer, and to make use of innovative item clusters that will make it possible to measure the full breadth of the NGSS standards. The assessment will include reports to parents and schools that clearly articulate student performance. Additionally, the assessment will include accommodations and accessibility features to provide access for a broad range of diverse student needs in Vermont.
