Guam Standards Based Assessments
A criterion-referenced test, the Guam Standards Based Assessments will be administered to studens who are in the non-tested grades of the ACT Aspire in ELA and Math as well as 1st through 12th grades in the content areas of Science and Social Studies. In ELA and Math, the assessments are aligned to the Common Core. In the areas of Science and Social Studies, they are aligned to the GDOE Standards. Unlike the SAT10 where all the students take the assessment of a particular grade regardless of the course they are taking, the SBA tests students based on the courses they are currently enrolled in.
