District Scorecard

This scorecard is a snapshot of our student performance on the state assessments shared about in the State Assessments section. Scores in these charts represent students who met the Smarter Balance Assessment (SBA) standard during the 2022-23 school year (tests administered in spring 2023) or in a qualifying test administration from previous school years.  

We share information from a variety of grade levels and multiple areas in our annual report because it enables us to reflect on our achievement over time and analyze patterns and trends. Our "why" is student success and as such, it is essential for us to share the results of how our values and investments show themselves through both data and stories. This enables us to celebrate what is working and reflect on trends to see how we can further optimize our work. 


State Testing

The Smarter Balanced Assessment and the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science help indicate how well Issaquah students are learning in our schools.

Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA)

The SBA consists of two parts: a computer adaptive test and a performance task. Writing is included at every grade level and students are asked to solve multi-step, real-world problems in math. Performance tasks ask students to determine an array of research, writing, and problem-solving skills. The SBA results describe student achievement (how much students know at the end of the year). 

The ELA, Math and Science charts indicate the percent of students who met or exceeded state testing standards compared to the percent of students who met or exceeded standard statewide. 

English Language Arts (ELA)




Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS)

The WCAS measures the level of proficiency students have achieved (what students know and can do) based on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The WCAS assesses all three dimensions of the learning standards (Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts). The numbers shown in these charts represent the percentage of students who met or exceeded standard on the NGSS compared to the percentage of students in the same grade level who met or exceeded standards statewide.
