About the Tests

  • In 2011-2012 Nebraska used the Nebraska State Accountability (NeSA) assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grades 4, 8 and 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science.
  • The NeSA assessments are standards-based tests, which means they measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nebraska.
  • The different student groups were identified by the Nebraska Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
  • The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
