The WCAS is an online assessment in science that was administered for the first time in spring 2018. It fulfills the federal requirement (ESSA) that students be tested in science once at each level: elementary, middle, and high school.
The state of Washington establishes a testing window in the spring. Our district testing schedule is designed to make the best use of student instructional time and use resources efficiently. The daily testing schedule will be posted on the assessment calendar.
