Students graduating in 2018 will be required to demonstrate proficiency in reading, writing and mathematics. The purpose of the Essential Skills Assessments is to provide alternative assessments for students who need to demonstrate proficiency in order to obtain a high school diploma. The assessments target secondary students who possess the skills but who are not demonstrating those skills on the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA). The training qualifies participating educators to score work samples in their districts, regionally and across the state. Districts are encouraged to send a team of teachers.
