In the spring of 2016, the Department of Education successfully completed its second year of testing using the new Smarter Balanced assessments. The tests are aligned to higher academic standards being taught in Virgin Islands’ public schools and provide teachers and parents with more accurate information of how well students are performing as they prepare for college or the career of their choice. This year’s Smarter Balanced scores show students, territory-wide, have made gains when compared to scores from first-year testing that occurred in the spring of 2015.
