Subject Area Testing Program, 2nd Edition (SATP2)
The Subject Area Testing Program, Second Edition (SATP2) is an assessment administered to students in Biology I and U.S. History and a small population of retesters in Algebra I and English II. Students who were enrolled in English II during and prior to the 2011-2012 year are also required to pass a writing component in order to meet graduation requirements. As of the 2014-2015 school year, Algebra I and English II were no longer administered to first-time testers under the SATP2 and are now administered under a different assessment program. The Biology I assessment is a measure of student achievement based on the 2010 Mississippi Science Frameworks, and the U. S. History assessment is a measure of student achievement based on the 2011 Mississippi Social Studies Framework. The results of both assessments will provide information that will be used for the purpose of improving student achievement.
