Students in grades 3-8 and 11, across the State of Maine, will take the eMPower aligned assessment in the spring. As it gets closer to the time, you will be informed by schools of the specific dates when your child will be tested.

We in RSU #1 are doing all we can to assure that this testing period is a smooth one, including discussing the test directly with students. Check back to the site regularly since new information will be added as it becomes available.


Staff utilizes all assessment data to help inform our practices at the district, school, classroom and individual levels for our students. Although we encourage students and parents to participate fully in our assessment program, it is important to note that parents/guardians may opt their child out of state testing. If you are interested in doing so, please reach out to your child's principal to make this request in writing.
