Student Performance on State Assessments
All Vermont students are required to take the state assessments SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) in English Language Arts and Mathematics in grades 3-9. In addition, in 2018 all Vermont students participated in two new pilot state assessments. All students in grade 5, 8 and 11 took the new Vermont Science Assessement (VTSA) and all students in grades 4, 7 and 10 participated in Fitnessgram which now serves as a new state Physical Education assessment. Because 2018 was a pilot year, we will not receive any data on these new assessments.
Below are the most recent student achievement data for the students of the Essex Westford School District. The numbers below indicate the percent of students who received a score of “Proficient” and above.
Note: In 2018 the high school assessment moved from grade 11 to grade 9.
