All Albuquerque Public Schools traditional high schools will administer the state-mandated Standards Based Assessment (NMPED's Standards Based Assessment page) to 11th graders on the same days this spring. The test will be given all day Tuesday-Thursday, April 6-8. Only juniors will go to school on those days. Buses to and from school will be provided for 11th graders on testing days.

Student-led parent/teacher conferences will take place Thursday and Friday, April 8-9, at all APS traditional high schools. No high school classes will be held Friday, April 9 due to the conferences. All students are expected to attend school on Monday, April 5.

The SBA is given to students throughout New Mexico in 3-8th and 11th grades each year to assess whether they meet grade-specific state standards. The testing window this year is March 22-April 23. There is no standardized schedule for administering the SBA to APS elementary and middle school students.

The SBA for high school – which has 14 subtests in reading, math, science, social studies and writing – takes students at least 14 hours to complete.

High school juniors will take math and social studies subtests on Tuesday, April 6. They will take reading, social studies and science subtests on Wednesday, April 7. And they will take science and writing subtests on Thursday, April 8. 

The standardized test helps determine whether the state, school districts and schools are meeting annual academic targets in reading, math and other areas with an ultimate, federally-mandated goal of 100 percent proficiency by school year 2013-2014. These targets are known as Adequate Yearly Progress, or AYP, and are established through the federal law known as No Child Left Behind.
