15-16 GPS Testing Schedule

 

          Gering High School utilizes four different types of assessments to monitor our students' learning throughout their high school career.

1.  The Nebraska State Assessment, NeSA, is given to students during the spring of their junior year. Students are assessed in the areas of reading, math, science and writing. All junior students in the state take the same assessment, based on the state standards, allowing districts to access how they are doing in comparison to other Nebraska schools. This assessment is computer formatted unless paper/pencil is required.

2.  Northwestern Evaluation Association has the Measures of Academic Progress Assessment, MAP, which is given to freshmen and sophomore students at the beginning and ending of their school year. Students take this assessment beginning at third grade and will be able to view their yearly growth. This assessment is computer formatted only.

3.  ACT series consist of the ACT, administered to juniors, and the ASPIRE, administered to freshmen and/or sophomore students. These assessments are administered during the spring of the school year in the subjects of Reading, Social Studies, Math and Science. The ASPIRE helps students prepare for the ACT. These assessments are computer formatted.

4.  In-program assessments are administered to all students in grades 9 through 12. These help teachers monitor student learning throughout the year and across the subject areas. These assessments are computer, paper/pencil and project formatted.
