Higher Standards, Better Assessments - Preparing Delaware Students to Be Prepared for Their Futures
Delaware is committed to providing a quality K-12 education for all students, regardless of where they live or which school they attend. Over the last 5 years, our educators have been working hard to teach students based on new college and career-ready standards, in English and Math. These standards provide clear expectations for what every student should know and be able to do at each grade level. During the 2014-15 school year Delaware began using new tests aligned to our higher standards that will measure the real-world skills our students need to be successful in their futures.

How can parents use these scores to help their children? The test results include a breakdown of your child’s performance into areas within each subject to help you understand where your child may need additional supports or challenges to go deeper into a subject. You can use test results to guide a discussion with your child’s teacher about additional supports or challenges that may be needed in class as well as ways to support your child at home. You can also use resources designed specifically for the Smarter Balanced test areas and our state standards, visit: or

Individual student scores will be sent the week of September 21, 2015 to each child's home. The scores to be mailed will be for students in Grades 3-8 and Grade 11 during the 2014-2015 school year.
