In spring 2021, your student took the West Virginia General Summative Assessment (WVGSA), which measures academic progress for students and schools in West Virginia. Students in Grades 3-8 took the English language arts (ELA) reading, ELA writing, and mathematics sections of the test, with students in Grades 5 and 8 also taking science.
Earlier this year you received a printed copy of your student’s individual student score report for the WVGSA, which contains information regarding your student’s performance in the tested areas. To further assist parents/guardians in understanding your student’s performance on the WVGSA, in addition to the printed report you received, the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) is providing an individual video score report for your student as part of a statewide pilot program.
A link to your student’s individual video score report will soon be sent to your student’s K12 student email address. Please work with your student to access the link in the email. Once you click on the link, you will be taken to a site where you will need to enter your student’s date of birth to access the video report.
In addition to the report, you will have access to resources to help your student. After viewing the video report, we encourage you to talk with your child’s teacher to discuss your child’s academic progress.
Additionally, once you have viewed the video report, the WVDE requests that you complete a short survey to provide your feedback about the video score report, so improvements can be made for future reports. To access the survey, scan the QR code or select the web address link below.
If you have any questions, please contact your student’s school.
