Alternative High School Assessment (formerly SRA)
The Special Review Assessment (SRA) is an alternative assessment that provides students with the opportunity to exhibit their understanding and mastery of the HSPA skills in contexts that are familiar and related to their experiences. The SRA content is linked to the HSPA test specifications in order to ensure that students who are certified through the SRA process have demonstrated the same skills and competencies at comparable levels as students who passed the written HSPA test.
Starting in the year 2003-2004 school year, the SRA Performance Assessment Tasks will be available in Spanish, Portuguese and Gujaratu.
