Student Achievement

UCAS and SCHOOL GRADING Accountability Reports
The Utah Comprehensive Accountability System (UCAS) Report and the SCHOOL GRADING Report have been created to assist in evaluating the academic performance of Utah schools in language arts, math, and science. The UCAS and SCHOOL GRADING Accountability Reports are based solely on schools’ performance on end-of-year assessments in language arts, math, and science, and on graduation rate (high schools only). No other aspects of school performance are considered in either the UCAS or SCHOOL GRADING Report.

Criterion Referenced Tests (CRT)
The Core Criterion Referenced Tests (CRTs) are administered at the end of each school year to help assess how well students have mastered the standards and objectives set forth in the State of Utah Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science core curricula.   Student achievement is reported as the percent of students reaching “proficient” by earning a Level 3 or Level 4 performance on the Core CRT.
