• Social Studies Assessment Redesign Underway

    To continue focusing on the need for Delaware students to demonstrate higher-order analytical thinking skills on state assessments in preparation for college and career, a redesign of the state Social Studies assessment is currently underway. This enhanced Social Studies assessment will closely align to Delaware’s Social Studies Standards and the Delaware State Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies.

    The new test will be online and summative, and given in grades 4, 7 and 11. A comprehensive statewide field test will be given to students in these grades only in Spring 2018. For more information or questions, contact Dusty Shockley.
