Assessment is an integral part of the instructional cycle and fulfills several purposes for educators, students, parents, policy makers, and community members. Assessments administered at the state, district/charter, and school levels combine to form a system of assessments with the goal of supporting student growth.

The Early College High School at Delaware State University administers the following annual statewide assessments:

9th Grade Students (Fall)

  • PSAT 8/9

10th Grade Students (Spring)

  • High School Biology
  • PSAT 10

11th Grade Students (Spring)

  • SAT
  • High School Social Studies

Students will be administered a state-approved pre- and post-test for all core high school courses (ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, PE, and Health).
