State Assessments


As a public education program, CVA is required to administer state assessments to assess student learning and growth. All CVA students in grades 3-8, 10 and 11 are expected to participate in annual state assessments for state and federal accountability. High school students earning a diploma through CVA must complete the requirements indicated on the Graduation Requirements webpage and may use passing scores on state assessments to meet the graduation pathway requirement. 

CVA students will take state assessment exams at a time and place prearranged by CVA staff. CVA teachers will be discussing state testing with their families and can answer questions and concerns that families may have. When the state releases the individual student report (ISR) with assessment results, a copy will be mailed directly to the student's home address.

For grade levels with no state assessment requirement, an alternative method of assessment that measures a student’s academic progress will be administered. Annual assessment is a requirement of all enrolled CVA students per WAC 392-550-050.

For grade-specific assessments and other valuable testing information, please visit the State Testing page on the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction website. The Washington Comprehensive Assessment Program (WCAP) portal includes the systems and resources used for K-12 state testing.
