State Assessment Information

Supporting Student Success

Jefferson County Schools shares in the responsibility of supporting a child’s skills and understanding in all areas of academics. We have several methods, including testing, that we utilize to evaluate their progress throughout their academic careers. It is important that we are all able to share information that will ensure understanding and cooperation as we partner for student success.

Below you will find information from the West Virginia Department of Education.

West Virginia General Summative Assessment (WVGSA)

The West Virginia General Summative Assessment (WVGSA) for students in grades 3-8 is an online summative test given toward the end of the school year to measure student performance on the state’s content standards, which provide clear, consistent guidelines for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level.

Students who took the West Virginia General Summative Assessment in the Spring of 2023 received personalized video score reports created by the West Virginia Department of Education. These reports are available in the student's email account inbox on September 22, 2023.

SAT/ACT Support

Jefferson County Schools strives to help students be prepared and successful in their next phase of life. We have purchased on demand virtual tutorials for high school students for SAT/ACT support and preparation. Students can work on individual areas of need to raise their test score in order to get that magic number for their chosen college, program, scholarship, or class.  These individual virtual licenses are free to the student and can be accessed anytime - in the evenings, on the weekend, or in a study hall so that it meets the students' needs and schedule. Students may use their SAT or PSAT results to guide their focus, or they can take a pre-test which will assign them areas to work on. Once they practice and brush up on skills utilizing the Apex platform, we recommend taking a full practice test on the College Board site.  Juniors and seniors were giving their log in information at school. Students self-enroll using the information on the sheet received at school. We also have purchased additional tutorials for high school courses, such as Math, Science, ELA, and Social Studies as presented in the assemblies at school.  Stop by the counseling office for additional information and the codes for ACT and the core courses
