Student Achievement

SAGE
The Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence (SAGE) is a collection of computer-adaptive assessments given to Utah students beginning in grade 3. SAGE assessments provide questions that assess students’ ability to apply higher-order thinking skills and better emulate real tasks students may encounter in education and in life.

SAGE assessments were developed through a joint effort on the part of Utah teachers, parents, test development experts, and the Utah State Board of Education. SAGE assessments provide information to assist in determining students’ educational progress towards being ready for college and careers upon completion of secondary school.

School Accountability Report Cards
School Accountability Report Cards are issued for each public school once a year by the State of Utah.  The 2017-18 school year marks the first report card under this new accountability system.  Elementary and middle school report cards have four main grade categories: achievement, growth, English learner progress, and growth of the lowest 25%.  High schools have one additional grade category entitled postsecondary readiness.  For the 2017-18 school year, achievement and growth scores are calculated from the statewide end-of-year SAGE assessment.  In future years, achievement and growth will be calculated from the new Readiness. Improvement. Success. Empowerment. (RISE) assessment for grades 3-8 and the Utah Aspire Plus assessment for grades 9-10.  The English learner progress category score is calculated from the annual administration of the WIDA test, which assesses students’ language proficiency in English.  For high schools, the postsecondary readiness score is calculated from 11th grade performance on the ACT, advanced coursework performance, and graduation rates.  The state’s School Accountability Report Cards are intended to inform educators, parents, and community stakeholders about school performance as they work collaboratively to improve student outcomes.
