PMA 2 Testing

All classes that take an FSA/NGSSS assessment will complete Progress Monitoring Assessments (PMAs) during the course of the school year. The PMAs are designed to be administered towards the end of the quarter; they assess the material that should have been completed up until that point in time according to the district's curriculum pacing guide. Each quarter, the test gets "larger" as it adds additional content and standards. The testing window for PMA #1 is December 4th-December 17th.


The following courses will take the PMAs:

9th and 10th English

Algebra 1

Geometry

Biology

US History
