State testing to start in N.H. schools

Print More

Starting today and for the next few weeks, students in New Hampshire‘s school districts will be immersed in statewide testing.

The New England Common Assessment Program exam is the state exam mandated under No Child Left Behind to determine a school’s “adequate yearly progress” in reading and math.

The most recent reports released by the Department of Education indicated some schools in the district did not make adequate yearly progress, meaning this year’s tests are particularly important.

Adequate Yearly Progress is a statistical system that separates students into subgroups and uses attendance, participation and graduation rates to determine progress.
