  3. Look for the 2020-21 SBA ELA/MATH SCI WA-AIM and select "Show Scores"
  4. Note scores. For further help interpreting the scores please see our website.

This fall's SBA was a "make-up" assessment, meaning students took the tests they would have taken in the spring the previous year. For example, 5th grade students took the 4th grade Math and ELA assessments. The 2021 SBA was a shorter assessment than the full assessment given in the spring. This SBA estimates students' level of mastery proficiency on the standards of the previous grade level.
