Information about NeSA: Students across the state of Nebraska take the NeSA in grades 3,4, 5-8, and 11. At Chadron Middle School, all students are tested in reading, and math. 5th and 8th grade students are tested in science and only 8th graders take the writing test. Scoring categories include Below Standard, Meets Standard, and Exceeds Standard. Overall proficiency is calculated by combining Meets standards and Exceeds Standard scores.
We are proud of our students and teachers for the hard work that did last year and we are excited for all of the learning that will take place this year.
