    Grades 5, 8 & HS: Science


    All Nevada public school students must participate in the State Science accountability assessment once in grade 5, once in grade 8, and once in high school. These computer-based tests are administered at schools in the spring and are based on the Nevada Academic Content Standards for Science. Achievement level cut scores were set by the State Board of Education and the Nevada Council on Academic Standards during the summer of 2017.
