This graph shows the proficiency rates of students who have taken either the North Dakota State Assessment or the state’s Alternate Assessment (Dynamic Learning Maps) administered to grades 3-8, and 11.
How North Dakota State Tests Are Scored
The North Dakota State Assessments are standards-based tests that measure how well students have mastered the challenging North Dakota state content standards. The NDSA tests report student achievement at the following four levels:
1. Advanced. Demonstrates exemplary understanding and exceeds expected level of performance.
2. Proficient. Demonstrates understanding and meets expected level of performance.
3. Partially Proficient. Demonstrates an emerging or developing level of understanding and performance.
4. Novice. Attempt made; however, lack of understanding and performance is evident.
To protect student privacy, data for schools who have less than 10 students will not be displayed.
