Note: In 2019-20, all statewide academic assessments were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic; therefore, no results are available. In 2020-21, school learning models changed throughout the school year and many students learned remotely for a significant part of the year. The CSDE was committed to administering the state assessments to monitor long-term trends and evaluate the full impact of the pandemic on student achievement and growth, but secured a waiver from the U.S. Department of Education to not implement the Next Generation Accountability System for schools and districts. In light of these significant variations, the 2020-21 results are reported separately with specialized considerations and analyses.
