We are pleased to inform you that students who took the West Virginia General Summative Assessment or SAT School Day in spring 2021 will receive an email at their K12 student email account on December 10, 2021, containing a link to an individual student video score report. Parents with emails on file with the school will also receive the link to the video score report. Although students received their printed score reports earlier this school year, the West Virginia Department of Education is piloting exciting new video score reports designed to be more engaging for students and their parents or guardians. Please have your student check his or her email account for the link, and parents and guardians should also check to see if it has been received. Simply copy and paste the link into your web browser and enter the student's date of birth to access the video score report customized specifically for the student. Also, be sure to check out the links to resources in the video report. If you have any difficulty accessing the report, please contact the school for assistance.
