PSSA TESTING INFORMATION

 

PSSA stands for the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment. This is one of our state’s standard-based tests to assess student learning and achievement. We use these test scores to determine curriculum areas that may need to be strengthened and to assist our educators in planning lessons and implementing strategies for future school years.

 

We administer PSSA tests at various times throughout the school year, depending upon grade level and the subject matter being tested. For more information regarding the PSSA tests, please view the Standardized Test Presentation on the right side of this page.
