Testing and Assessment FAQs

What tests are required as part of the program?

Students who are enrolled full-time in WAVA are required to take the following tests:

  • Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) - grades 3-8
  • High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) Reading/Writing - grade 10
  • End of Course Exam - Algebra, Geometry and Biology
  • Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) - grade 2 only

Do I have to participate in state testing?

Full-time students are required to take the MSP, which is facilitated across the state every spring. While not required to, part-time students may elect to take the MSP. In addition, parents of part-time students will need to contact their local school district in order to locate a testing location closest to them if they choose not to take the MSP with WAVA.
