Regional Assessments

 Elementary Mathematics Regional Assessments

In the summer of 2015 elementary teachers of mathematics from across NortheastGeorgia RESA districts came together to design high-quality unit assessments. What resulted was one unit assessment per grade level in grades 1-5. Participating NEGA RESA districts/schools implemented these assessments and reported school- level data back to the RESA for regional comparison. Once data were collected, the regional assessments were modified to enhance test reliability. For the 2016-17 school year, updated grades 1-5 assessments and answer keys can be found in the SLDS Teacher Resource Link for any NEGA RESA district’s use. And participating NEGA RESA districts/schools are implementing the regional assessments in grades 1 and 2.
