discover federal, state & local required testing of students
The federal government under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires states to administer certain types of tests. Our state requires additional tests under laws passed by the state legislature. Our school district, Greenville County Schools, chooses to administer other assessments. Specific dates for tests may be found at Greenville County Schools.
In addition to the tests listed below, in every grade, Kindergarten through 12th, an English language proficiency assessment (ACCESS for ELLs®) is administered to English language learners in the spring. Learn more at the South Carolina Department of Education.
NOTE: For spring 2020, many assessments have been canceled and are marked as such in each grade’s timeline below.
