New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP)

In the 2014-15 school year, New Hampshire began rolling out new assessments aligned to the NH College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS). Students in grades 3 through 8 and one grade in high school will be tested in Mathematics, Reading, and Writing. The new assessments are being used to gauge how well students are mastering the standards – and ultimately how ready students are for college and career education and training. Third through eighth grade students take the Smarter Balanced Assessment while eleventh graders take the SAT. NECAP Science is administered in grades 4, 8, and 11 each year in May.
