SAGE stands for 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 expectations for students and teachers. The SAGE system includes:
- Summative end-of-year tests that assess how our schools and districts are doing. These tests replace the CRTs that were previously administered at the end of the school year.
- Interim fall and winter tests that monitor student progress. These tests are administered by the schools and districts that are choosing to implement them.
- A formative assessment tool available online to students, families, and teachers that provides materials to support instruction.
The Utah State Office of Education has developed a brochure to help parents and families understand SAGE. The district has translated it into several languages for our patrons.
