ATLAS 3-10

ATLAS LogoArkansas law requires that all public school students shall participate in a statewide program of educational assessments per Ark. Code Ann. §§ 6-15-419, 6-15-433, 6-15-2009. In the 2015-16 school year, The Arkansas State Board of Education adopted the ACT Aspire summative assessment. 

The ATLAS end-of-year summative assessment will be used to assess all Arkansas public school students in grades 3-8 in the content areas of English Language Arts (ELA), mathematics, and science. Students will take end of year exams for ELA in grades 9 and 10 and end of course exams for algebra I, geometry, and biology. Algebra I may be taken in eighth grade and replace the eighth grade mathematics assessment if a student is enrolled in algebra I at that time. All students will be required to participate in ATLAS 3-10 summative unless they qualify for an alternate assessment.  The first administration will occur in spring 2024 and is aligned to the Arkansas standards
