State Assessment Scores
RISE Testing SLArts students have taken the state-mandated “RISE” Assessments in May, each of the last three years. Using standardized assessments as measures of achievement was challenging during the pandemic. The tests were not administered in 2020, and in 2021 the large number of remote students opting out of testing made the data unreliable. We were pleased to see our students’ scores the Spring of 2022 approaching pre-pandemic levels.
RISE measures student “proficiency” in three subjects. Students receiving a “3” or a “4” on their RISE test are deemed proficient or excelling on grade-level material in that subject. RISE data is just a “snapshot in time” and only tells part of the student achievement story. We continue to evaluate students on PEPR (Participation, Effort, Preparation and Risk-Taking) and CAB (Cooperation, Attitude and Behavior) in addition to Proficiency, in the belief that cultivation of these additional qualities contributes to student achievement.
