Ninth graders attending public schools in Colorado began taking the PSAT 8/9 in the spring of 2018. Tenth graders began taking PSAT 10 in the spring 2016 and public school 11th graders began taking the SAT in spring of 2017.
Per KHSAA Bylaw 23, each school must submit its spring practice dates on or before December 15, 2022, for the spring, 2023 spring practice period. Failure to submit these dates by December 15, per the Bylaw, results in the school not being permitted to conduct spring practice.
The findings in this report are subject to at least nine limitations. First, these data are not nationally representative. Second, facility participation varies within and across states; however, data were only analyzed from facilities that reported consistently over the study period, thus minimizing the impact of reporting fluctuations on resultant trends. Third, differences in availability, coding practices, and reporting of chief complaints and discharge diagnoses from facilities might influence results returned by the syndrome definition. Fourth, distinguishing initial visits from follow-up visits for the same event was not possible, so the number of ED visits for suspected suicide attempts might be lower than presented. Fifth, NSSP race and ethnicity data were not available at the national level for this analysis at the time it was conducted, so analyses of differences among racial/ethnic groups was not possible. Sixth, these data likely underrepresent the true prevalence of suspected suicide attempts because persons with less severe injuries might be less likely to seek emergency care during the pandemic when many persons avoided medical settings to reduce the risk for contracting COVID-19. Seventh, the suspected suicide attempt syndrome definition excludes some, but not all, visits for nonsuicidal self-harm. Eighth, the sharp decline in all ED visits during the pandemic likely affected the number and proportion of visits for suspected suicide attempts (6). Finally, this analysis was not designed to determine whether a causal link existed between these trends and the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) in grades 3-10 English Language Arts (ELA) and grades 3-8 Mathematics were administered for the final time in spring 2022. The FSA Geometry End-of-Course (EOC) Assessment was administered for the final time in fall 2022. For information on these assessments, visit the FSA Historical page.
The Michigan Merit Exam (MME) assesses students in grade 11 and eligible students in grade 12 based on Michigan high school standards. The MME is administered each spring, and consists of three components:
Note: Beginning with the 2019 crop, producers may report the same acre of either wheat, barley, oats, rye, and triticale for grain and grazing. That situation can occur when a producer intends to graze cattle in the winter, remove the cattle, and harvest the grain when mature later that spring. Thus, for these crops the acre would be counted twice when a producer intends to use the same acre for both grazing and grain. 1e1e36bf2d
