State and National Assessments

  • West Virginia General Summative Assessment (WVGSA)

    All students grade 3 - 8 and 11

    The Assessment for students grades 3 - 8 is completed entirely online. Students will test over multiple days, one test per day.

    *The 3 - 8 WVGSA is computer-adaptive, such that how a student answers one question may determine the follow-up question, and features a set of questions from a testing vendor. This question bank will be supplemented by items designed by West Virginia Educators.
