NECAP Assessment

The New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) tests are designed to measure student performance on grade level expectations (GLE) and grade span expectations in Reading, Writing, Mathematics, and Science.

This page contains overall information about the assessments, such as announcements, schedule, workshops, and technical reports. In the right menu, you can find links to pages containing details about requesting exemptions, view released items and results, and download test administration materials.

District/LEA Testing Coordinators: NECAP Testing Schedule submission method has changed.

RIDE now has an eRIDE tool to streamline your schedule submission - you do not need to email us with a PDF form.  District/LEA Testing Coordinators, please login to eRIDE and use the NECAP Schedule Tool to submit your schedule.
Please note: The tool only allows schedule submission from a district or LEA level.
If you login and an icon for the NECAP Schedule Tool is not visible, please email

Read the Guidance document for the NECAP Schedule Tool in eRIDE [Doc, 369KB].
The guidance document has been updated to reflect feedback from the field.
If you have additional questions about the tool, please email
If you are a district/LEA testing coordinator and you do not have an eRIDE account, please contact the eRIDE Help Desk at
