Assessment Graduation Alternatives
What are Assessment Graduation Alternatives?
Assessment graduation alternatives are associated with the assessment graduation requirement for Washington state students. They are assessment options that are available to students meet specific Eligibility Criteria.
Most Washington state public high school students will fulfill the assessment portion of their graduation requirements by passing required state tests. If students do not pass on their first attempt, there are retake opportunities for these tests.
Some students, however, need a different method to demonstrate that they possess the knowledge and skills required for graduation. Assessment Graduation Alternatives provide these students with the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills using methods other than state accountability tests.
