State Test Scores (Smarter Balanced)

As a publicly funded school, IVA students are required to take the state-sponsored academic achievement test known as the Smarter Balanced assessment. The results from the last three years' assessments (the only years for which we have data) are as follows:

*This year, IVA also has results from the CAASPP Science test given to our 8th grade students. IVA only has 8th-grade students, so its averages do not include 5th- or 11th-grade student results based on the CST test. New Generation Science Standards version of the test begins in the 2016-2017 school year.  

 
While we believe these tests measure something important, they do not begin to capture everything that is involved with growth in intellectual virtues like curiosity, open-mindedness, intellectual courage, and intellectual tenacity. Therefore, we believe they are only partly reflective of the quality of education offered at IVA. For further indicators of this quality, see here.

In addition, you can read over the annual School Accountability Report Card, which gives an overview of our programs. See the attached SARC below.
