2021 PEAKS Reports
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the FNSBSD offered families the options of remote learning, eLearning, and BEST homeschool during the first semester of the 2020-21 school year. Starting in January 2021, students also had the option to attend in-person. PEAKS assessments were administered to students in-person from March 29 to May 14, 2021. While reviewing 2021 PEAKS reports, it is important to keep in mind that for many students, instruction and assessment looked very different during 2020-21.

In the spring of 2021, Alaska's students took the Performance Evaluation of Alaska's Schools (PEAKS). It assessed 3rd-9th grade students in English language arts and math. Students in grades 5, 8, and 10 also took the Science assessment, but because this was the first year and it was a field test, science reports are not available.
Student reports are available in PowerSchool under "Student Records" and then "Student File" (see image below). The reports can only be viewed through the PowerSchool guardian account and only when using a web browser. District and school reports are located below.
Please note, Hunter Elementary was closed during the test window due to roof damage and most students were unable to take the test. They will not receive a student report for the spring 2021 test.

Overall scores on the PEAKS Assessment are divided into four achievement levels: Advanced, Proficient, Below Proficient, and Far Below Proficient.
The number of students, median scale score, mean scale score, and the standard error of the mean are reported at the school, district, and state level in the table below. The median is the middle score in the ordered list of all students’ scale scores and is shown by the colored bar. The symbol shows the mean, or average, of all the students’ scale scores; the dark circle is the mean and the lines on either side of the circle represent two standard errors of the mean.
