About the test
In 2014-2015, Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 math and english language arts, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
