What gets measured gets mastered.

Louisiana Believes starts with the premise that all students can achieve high expectations and master rigorous academic standards. If we believe that all students can achieve, then we must measure their progress to ensure they remain on track for college and professional careers.

Louisiana students are assessed annually in English Language Arts/literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies in 3rd through 8th grades; high school students take End-of-Course tests in six subjects: Algebra I, Geometry, English II and III, Biology, and U.S. History. The assessments measure whether each student has gained the knowledge and skills in the subject for their grade.
