  • South Dakota Science Assessment (SDSA) Interims are Available 

    The SDSA Interim window begins on January 22, 2020 adn runs through May 1, 2020. SDSA Interim assessments are available for students enrolled in grades 5, 8, and 11. These are optional science assessments that can be taken twice, but do require the student to use Secure Browser. SDSA Interims do not require handscoring, so after a student completes an SDSA Interim, their scores will be immediately available in the AIRWays Reporting System. In  addition, students may also use the science practice tests to become familiar with the science assessment item types. For system related questions, contact the South Dakota Help Desk at sdhelpdesk@air.org.
