Welcome, Montana Science Assessment!



    Due to the temporary closure of schools, all summative tests have been removed from our interfaces for security purposes. OPI is in the process of submitting a one-year waiver to waive assessment and accountability requirements for the 19-20 school year, and all summative testing will be considered suspended until further notice.
