The district gives standardized tests to evaluate student and school performance. The tests provide information that can be used to improve the learning environment in classrooms, to measure the effectiveness of curricula, and to compare the achievement of Mukilteo students with students elsewhere in the state and nation.
The Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) measures student achievement toward Common Core State Standards in English/language arts (ELA) and in math. The tests are given in the spring to all 3rd through 8th grade students and to 11th grade students. Students in 10th grade also take the 11th grade ELA assessment and those who pass it do not need to take it as 11th graders. In addition, students in the 5th and 8th grades are given the Measurements of Student Progress in science.
End-of-course algebra, geometry, and biology tests are administered at the end of the course or in 10th grade. (End-of-course exams in math will be completely phased out for the class of 2019, this year’s juniors. Students may choose to take the SBA math test, instead.) The school district also administers other standardized tests for program placement and evaluation of achievement. The English Language Proficiency Assessment for the 21st Century (ELPA21) is administered to all English language learners who are developing English proficiency skills. For more information, call 425-356-1218.
Students can earn up to four high school World Language credits simply by passing a proficiency exam in another language. For more information, call 425-356-1218 or see the World Language Proficiency Exam (WLPE) information on the district’s Assessment website.
To earn a diploma from ACES, Kamiak, or Mariner high schools, a student is required to complete course credits, as established by the Mukilteo School Board, develop a High School and Beyond Plan, and pass required state tests or complete a state-approved alternative to those tests. For more information, check the Secondary Education website.
