State Assessments for High School Students

  • In an effort to prepare students for College and Career Readiness, the Alabama State Board of Education approved the adoption of the internationally benchmarked Common Core State Standards along with selected Alabama standards in November 2010.  By combining both Common Core and Alabama's standards, our state has adopted one of the most comprehensive sets of standards in the nation, ensuring students are prepared for a successful future in the ever-expanding global environment.

    As a way of determining student progress toward College and Career Readiness, various types of assessments are given throughout a student's K12 academic career. This page addresses the state assessments administered at the high school level.
