Basic Skills Test

« Back to Glossary Index

The Basic Skills Tests ensure no student graduates from a Minnesota public high school without essential competencies in reading, mathematics and writing. Tests in reading and mathematics are first given in the eighth grade and a written composition test is first given in the tenth grade. Students have multiple opportunities to pass these tests before graduation. Students must meet the Basic Skills requirements, the High Standards requirements, and any local requirements to graduate from a public high school in Minnesota.
