Statewide High School Assessments Data Explorer

High school students across the country take a variety of assessments for different purposes. Achieve has long tracked states’ assessments and how they matter for students and for schools. Historically, the assessments that mattered for students — the ones that have currency in higher education and with employers — rarely factored into school accountability, and the ones that mattered for schools often did not matter to schools. With states’ recent transitions to new assessments and accountability systems, we wanted to know more about how these varied assessments, with varied purposes, matter for students and schools, and whether states are making progress towards a coherent set of policies where all assessments have meaning for schools and students.

The below data explorer details each state's required 2018-19 high school assessments in mathematics, ELA, science, social studies, and career readiness and how those assessments matter for students and schools. The tool also allows for state-to-state comparisons. Select and filter by state(s), whether the assessment matters for students and/or schools, and by subject area. Click on any of the column headers to sort the data. Click on each assessment name option to view a complete profile of the assessment, including the grade(s) student take the assessment, which students take the assessment, additional specifics on how the assessment matters for students and/or schools, and a source link for the information. Alongside the data explorer, we've published a brief that dives into trends across states and additional information about state assessments in grades 3-8
