PEAKS is a statewide summative assessment that is given in the spring. A summative assessment is "designed to give information on a student’s understanding of the state’s English language arts, mathematics, and science standards." More information about PEAKS can be found on the Alaska Department of Education's Assessment and Accountability website.
Several different tools are available for students to use while taking the PEAKS test. Watch the video tutorials to see how the tools are used. Practice tests are also available for students to practice using the tools.
