State and Federally Required Tests:

State and federal testing is required at Odyssey. There is no ‘opt out’ policy. We are required to follow all state and federal testing requirements because we are a tuition-free, publicly-funded school. All public school students in Nevada must participate in tests required by the state and federal governments such as the SBAC, NV Science, and a College and Career Readiness test such as The ACT.

Required Tests by Grade:
Grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8: SBAC (English & Math)
Grades 5, 8, and 9: NV Science
Grade 11: The ACT

Please note, the End of Course (EOC) exams have been discontinued for the 2023-2024 school year going forward.
