NECAP testing kicks off in RI

September 30, 2010

Students begin to take standardized state tests Friday in public schools around the state. The test, known as the New England Common Assessment Program, is administered annually to students in grades 3-8 and 11.

Cranston, Chariho and East Greenwich are among five districts that begin testing this week. Most districts will join them by the middle of next week.

In Barrington, 11th graders will take the writing assessment Friday, which is now a requirement for graduation. 11th graders statewide now have to achieve a score of partially proficient or better on NECAP exams or risk not graduating.
