West Virginia General Summative Assessment

West Virginia General Summative Assessment (WVGSA)

All students in grades 3-8 in Jefferson County Schools will be assessed between April 20 and May 22 this year.

Each school will provide parents with the testing schedule.

The Assessment for students grades 3-8 is completed entirely online. 

Students will test over multiple days, typically one test per day.
(State Window 3/30/20-5/22/20)

*The assessment is computer-adaptive, such that how a student answers one question may determine the follow-up question, and features a set of questions from a testing vendor.  This question bank will be supplemented by items designed by West Virginia Educators.
