Assessment Information



Our School District uses the Smarter Balanced Assessment Testing.

Here at Mountain View we usually test students starting in May.

The subjects that students are tested in are:

  • English Language Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Science (8th Grade Only)
  • ELPA (English Language Proficiency Assessment only for students who have a home language other than English)



The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the only assessment that measures what U.S. students know and can do in various subjects across the nation, states, and in some urban districts. It is also known as The Nation's Report Card and is a common measure of student achievement. NAEP provides important information on how students are performing academically.

PSAT (8th Grade Only)

The PSAT helps students determine what they need to work on most so that they’re ready for college when they graduate from high school—and it supports educators as they guide the way.
