The Alaska Department of Early Education and Development have set a target date for releasing Alaska Measures of Progress Alaska Alternate Assessment test results for the state’s 54 public school districts.

On Oct. 26, most likely following an announcement via webinar by State Education Commissioner Mike Hanley, DEED is anticipating posting the student achievement percentages for English Language Arts and Math from the Spring 2015 exam given for the first time to third- through tenth-graders.

“I think we can meet that timeline,” said Margaret MacKinnon, DEED Director of Assessment and Accountability, and Information Management. “We are just working to make sure all the data is ready.”

The department will confirm the release date Oct. 22, she said.

The information for individual school districts will not be made public unless one chooses to publish its own results, MacKinnon said. DEED, however, does post annual state assessment analysis results for all schools and school districts on its website, she said.

In following weeks, school districts will be sent hard copies of student scores reports, which will go home to parents, MacKinnon said.

Later, results of subgroups such as ethnicity, students with disabilities and students with limited English proficiency will be released, she said.

The State Board of Education set the range of scores within each achievement level for the two standardized tests on Oct. 9.
