The Performance Evaluation for Alaska's Schools (PEAKS) Assessment is a summative assessment administered to all students in grades 3 through 9 every spring.
The Spring of 2017 was the first administration of the assessment. This assessment measures the skills and concepts of the Alaska English/Language Arts (ELA) and Math Standards.
The assessment provides information to parents, educators, policy makers, communities, and businesses about how Alaska's schools and district's are performing.
Parents have the right to make educational decisions for their child, including whether to participate in statewide testing.
