Overview of State Required Testing
  • Students must “demonstrate competency” ( aka PASS state tests) in 5 subject areas in order to graduate
  • Reading, Math, Science, Writing, and Social Studies
  • The First way to pass Reading, Math, and Science is to pass each of those sections on the New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA)
  • The First way to pass Writing and Social Studies is to pass an End of Course Exam in those subjects

  • 1-Spring Sophomore Year (H2)
  • 2-Spring Junior Year (H3)
  • 3-Fall Senior Year (H4)
