Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence -- SAGE

The Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence (SAGE) is a system of assessments designed to measure student success and growth over the years. SAGE tests are based on the Utah Core Standards, a set of academic standards that raise our expectations for students and teachers and were developed from the Utah Core Curriculum. The test questions were written by Utah teachers and reviewed and edited by Utah teachers; Local Education Agency (LEA) content specialists; university representatives; members of the community; Utah State Office of Education (USOE) specialists in the Assessment, Curriculum, and Students at Risk sections; and contracted curriculum and assessment experts. SAGE tests are not timed. Every student should be provided sufficient opportunity to complete the test. Testing will need to be scheduled for any students who require test accommodations that cannot be facilitated during the regular testing sessions.

The SAGE portal contains information and resources for Students and Families, Teachers/Test Administrators, School/District Testing Coordinators and Technology Coordinators. For more information please click on one of the following links:
