Higher standards. Smarter testing. Better futures.

All Delaware children deserve the very best education we can give. Their success in a competitive world depends on it. That’s why Delaware has been a national leader in raising the academic standards for our schools and students. We are helping all students graduate from high school more prepared for college and careers, so they are ready for the real world.

Now, the standardized testing in grades 3 to 8 and 11, called Smarter assessments, aligns with those Common Core State Standards. Learn more about our new standards, our new testing and all the resources Smarter assessments have to prepare our students for future success.
