Score and Score Report Availability

Fall 2018 High School Test Results

- We expect to post Preliminary scores posted in Skyward for students who tested online by December 10th.  These scores will appear under the test name of PRELM or PREOG.
- Final scores will be posted sometime in January under test name of WCAP.

We don't have a specific date as yet, but anticipate score reports will be mailed to families by early March.

Final  Spring 2018 Test Results


  • Spring Test Scores for SBA and WCAS have all been posted to Skyward and are available to view via Family Access.   Look for the scores under the test name WCAP dated June 2018.
  • EOC scores are posted under the test name of EOC.

PRINTED SCORE REPORTS - as of October 25, 2018

  • Family copies of SBA score reports for students currently in grades 3-8 have been delivered to schools.
  • Family copies of SBA score reports for current High School students were mailed to homes, with the exception of some grade 8 score reports.  The state reported there were score corrections made for a number of our 8th grade tests so those incorrect reports were not mailed to homes.  Corrected score reports have been received and will be mailed to families within the next few weeks.  If you already received your child's score report, then that tells you your child's score was not one of the ones with a corrected score.
  • WCAS Science Score Reports have been received and we expect to deliver 5th grade reports to schools this week, and will mail 8th and 11th grade reports within the next two weeks.
