Prior Years SATP2 Manuals & Guides

The Subject Area Testing Program (SATP) consists of four academic, end-of-course tests.  Since the 2001-2002 school year, students have been required to pass the subject area test(s) as a requirement for graduation.

Students are assessed on the content at the completion of the course in Algebra I, Biology I, English II, and U.S. History from 1877.  As part of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and Title I requirements, all students who are enrolled in Algebra I and English II (multiple-choice only) for the first time must be tested.  The scores of all these first-time test takers must be included in the annual report cards and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) calculations to comply with the federal law.
