As a public Charter School, Freedom Prep Academy participates in state testing. All students must participate in annual standardized testing under Arizona law. Generally speaking, testing cannot take place within a student’s home or microschool, meaning online students will need to take their test(s) in a pre-assigned location. For convenience, Freedom Prep secures various testing sites throughout the state. Students (or their parents) must select an approved testing site location and then arrive at that location on time and prepared to complete their tests on the day(s) they have been assigned. Parents and Guides have a shared responsibility to help prepare and transport their student(s) to and from their approved testing location.

Understanding Testing

There are four (4) types of tests that students participate in:

  1. Course exams: Course exams such as unit assessments, midterms, and finals assess course-specific knowledge and mastery of subject material. 
  2. Screeners: Screeners identify students who need specialist support or additional learning tools. Teachers and Guides may complete observational screening forms to indicate student needs in areas like vision, hearing, communication, academics, and behavior. Students may complete proctored screening for early literacy skills and dyslexia indicators.
  3. Adaptive benchmark tests: Computer-based adaptive benchmarks such as i-Ready identify learning gaps and inform meaningful decisions about a student’s unique learning path. They also measure student growth and can predict performance on end-of-year state assessments.
  4. Standardized tests: Standardized tests measure student proficiency on grade-level material and enable performance comparisons between a student and their peers. These tests evaluate effectiveness of teachers, curriculum, and intervention programs, and in some cases can impact student promotions to the next grade level. Standardized tests typically happen annually at the end of the school year.
