Public Comment on Proposed Science Assessment Waiver
This survey is to submit any public comment on the waiver DEED is requesting from the US Department of Education to waive the requirements to testing students in science and report on results for the spring of 2021. If the waiver is approved, students in grades 4, 8, and 10 will not take the Alaska Science Assessment and instead, DEED will administer the new PEAKS Science Assessment in grades 5, 8, and 10 as a full-census field test. More information on this waiver request is available on the PEAKS webpage. All comments submitted are anonymous.
