OSPI-Developed Social Studies Assessments
Elementary, middle, and high schools are required to have assessments or other strategies in place for students to learn essential academic learning requirements in Social Studies, The Arts, Health and Fitness, and Educational Technology. Additionally, students in the fourth or fifth grade, seventh or eighth grade, and the eleventh or twelfth grade must complete at least one OSPI-developed Classroom-Based Assessment (CBA), or district supported alternative, in civics.
To show implementation of these assessments, school districts are required to submit an annual implementation verification report to OSPI.
