About the test

In 2014-2015 Delaware used the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System (DCAS) to test students in social studies in grades 4 and , and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The DCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Delaware. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
