What Is RISE testing?
Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, RISE (Readiness, Improvement, Success and Empowerment) will replace SAGE as Utah’s computer adaptive standards assessment for students in grades 3-8. Students in grades 9-10 will participate in high school assessments that provide a predictive score for their college readiness assessment (ACT). RISE offers students, teachers and parents an improved overall experience and an opportunity to work collaboratively towards following the Utah State Core Standards. It also provides a baseline for student learning, while ensuring that student proficiency and growth reflect what they know and can do. This comprehensive testing system includes the following summative, interim, and benchmark components.
RISE Summative: Summative adaptive assessments required for state and federal accountability provided for English language arts (ELA), math and science
RISE Benchmark: Optional learning resources, test items, and learning activities available to teachers, parents and students, linked to students’ summative test results
