NSCAS Growth

Nebraska has embarked on a transition to an adaptive through-year assessment model, one which combines the best of MAP Growth and the NSCAS General Summative test, builds on the work Nebraska educators have done statewide to create an assessment system that is instructionally useful, meaningful to students, and connected to classroom practice. NSCAS Growth will be aligned to both the state standards and to the state summative blueprint. Adaptive outside of grade level and measuring growth, it will yield grade level performance data throughout the school year and produce summative proficiency scores at year’s end. The NSCAS Growth will be operational in 2022-2023.
