State Assessments

Assessments play an important role in preparing students for the future. Beginning in April, students in grades 3-8 throughout Utah will take the RISE standards assessment test. RISE will offer a baseline for student learning, while ensuring that student growth and proficiency reflect what a student knows and can do.

Students in grades 9 and 10 will participate in the Utah Aspire Plus, a high school assessment that provide a predictive score for their college readiness assessment (ACT).
