General Description of the Tests

New Hampshire Educational Improvement and Assessment Program (NHEIAP)

  • Grades: 3, 6, 10
  • Subjects: English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies
  • To establish what NH students should know and be able to do and to develop and implement effective methods for assessing that learning and its application so that local decisions about curriculum development and delivery can be made
  • The results from the state tests are used to produce individual-student proficiency reports as well as diagnostic reports at the school, district, and state levels; reports are standards-referenced rather than norm-referenced.

New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP)

  • Grades: 3-8, 11
  • Subjects: Mathematics, Reading, Writing, Science
  • The New Hampshire Department of Education, Rhode Island Department of Education, and Vermont Department of Education have developed a common set of Grade-Level Expectations, known as the New England Common Assessment Program Grade-Level Expectations (NECAP GLEs).

New Hampshire Alternate Assessment (NH-Alt)

  • Grades: 2-8, 10, 11
  • Subjects: Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Science

National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

  • Grades: 4, 8, 12
  • This assessment focuses on what America's students know and are capable of doing in various subject areas by testing representative samples of students.
  • NAEP does not provide individual scores for students or even schools; rather, it offers results regarding subject-matter achievement, instructional experiences and school environment for populations of students (e.g., fourth graders) and subgroups of those populations (e.g. female students, Hispanic students).
