Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP) - New Assessment for Students

    Students throughout Alaska will be taking a new computer-based assessment this spring.  AMP replaces the Standards Based Assessments (SBA).

    Since students will be using technology to complete the tests, the spring testing schedule is different than in prior years.  Parents should use this schedule to plan their family calendar.  Attendance on testing days is very important.
