  • 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.
