Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP) TestingIn the spring of 2015, students in grades 3-10 across the state of Alaska took a new assessment called the Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP). AMP replaced the Standards Based Assessments (SBA). This is the first year of the AMP test, and score results are delayed due to the State of Alaska’s standard setting process to determine the range of scores for each level of achievement. Individual school scores are expected in October after the process of standard setting is complete. Statewide scores expect to be released in late August. Learn more.
