|NeSA-Reading is a new statewide reading test that all Nebraska students in grades 3-8 and 11 will take beginning the spring of 2009-10. NeSA-Reading will allow for comparisons of student performance as required in recent legislation. |
All Nebraska public school districts will have four opportunities to participate in preliminary or practice tests. In the spring, 2009, all the students for Alliance Public Schools grades 3-8 and 11 either took the practice tests or were involved in the field study provided by the Nebraska Department of Education. No student performance results will be reported until 2010.
The reading test will be available as an online test and a paper/pencil test. APS has chosen to participate in the online version. The testing system allows for thousands of students to take the test online at the same time.
In 2010, student performance results will be publicly reported by total reading score as well as student performance on reading comprehension and vocabulary. Student performance will be reported at three levels.
