RICAS

The Rhode Island Comprehensive Assessment System (RICAS) test designs for English language arts (ELA) and mathematics have been updated. Both the 2018 English Language Arts and the mathematics tests of RICAS will have only two sessions of testing for grades 3-8. 


Please see the RICAS Assessment page of the RIDE website for more information on the test designs and other new materials, including:

  • 2018 RICAS Accommodations and Accessibility Features Manual

  • Approved ELA graphic organizers and mathematics reference sheets
    • Two types of mathematics reference sheets are available for RICAS.
    • The standard reference sheets are provided on the TestNav8 platform for all students in grades 5-8.
    • The ELA graphic organizers and supplemental mathematics reference sheets are available as an accommodation in grades 3-8.
    • Copies of both types of reference sheets and the graphic organizers are posted on the RICAS Assessment page. Teachers are encouraged to make regular use of these resources, as appropriate, so students gain familiarity with them.


In addition, the support page for RICAS is now live. Additional information will continue to be added to the support site, including training modules for Pearson Access Next, test administration manuals, and student work.
