LEAP 2025 TESTS
Each year, students in grades 3 through high school take state tests to measure their knowledge and skills in each subject area and their readiness for the next level of study.
The LEAP 2025 tests are just one of several indicators, in combination with report cards,
teacher-made tests, and classroom work, that are used to create a complete picture of a student’s
performance in school. The results from the tests will be used to help teachers identify when students need additional support or more challenging work in each subject area. This information is also used to measure how well schools and school systems are helping students achieve higher expectations.
Students with the most significant learning disabilities are eligible to take the LEAP Alternate Assessment, Level 1 (LAA1) for Science in grades 4, 8, and 11 and LEAP Connect in grades 3-8 in ELA and Math. LEAP Connect is given to students from February 5 through March 16, depending on schools’ individual schedules.
Practice LEAP 2025
WHAT ARE PRACTICE TESTS?
This year, students in grades 3-11 may take practice tests in English language arts (ELA), mathematics, and social studies to help prepare them for the LEAP 2025 statewide tests administered towards the end of the school year.
Practice tests allow students to:
- become familiar with the testing format;
- practice using the online tools for computer-based tests; and
- respond to the types of questions they may answer on the LEAP 2025 tests.
Teachers use practice tests to better understand test structure and the types of questions being asked.
Practice tests may help you better understand how the test compares to classroom work, and see the types of ELA, math, and social studies questions your child should be answering in class. Talk with your child’s teacher to see how he or she plans to use the practice tests as part of their lessons, and how you might help walk your child through the test at home to help familiarize him or her with the test format and features, and answer any questions he or she might have.
