All students in RSU 12 will take the Smarter Balanced Assessment during the spring of 2015. These assessments are state tests that will replace the NECAPS that students have taken for the last ten years. These innovative assessments will be computerized and they are adaptive, which means they adapt to the students level. They will also measure the growth of the student. These tests are mandated by the Maine Department of Education. All schools in Maine must take these assessments.
