**Assessments involving test administration by computer.

NOTES:

  1. Grades tested are 4, 8, and 12 unless otherwise indicated, except that long-term trend assessments sample students at ages 9, 13, and 17 and are conducted in reading and mathematics.
  2. Subjects in BOLD ALL CAPS indicate the year in which a new framework is implemented or assessment year for which the Board will decide whether a new or updated framework is needed.
  3. In 2009, 12th grade assessments in reading and mathematics at the state level were conducted as a pilot in 11 volunteering states (AR, CT, FL, IA, ID, IL, MA. NH, NJ, SD, WV). For 2013, 13 states agreed to participate (with MI and TN added).
  4. The Governing Board intends to conduct assessments at the 12th grade in World History and Foreign Language during the assessment period 2018-2022.
