NGSS Assessment

This page provides resources for administering the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Assessment.


  • On February 4, 2019, the NGSS Grade 11 assessment window opens.

    New designated supports for English learners participating in the NGSS include the Spanish Translation tool and the embedded Text-to-Speech in Spanish.  While these supports can be entered into TIDE now, they will not be available to testers until February 11, 2019.  Please make note of this if your district is scheduled to test next week.  If you have students who qualify for these designated supports, please consider postponing their test session until February 11 or a later date.
