SCAS: Secondary Credit Assessment System
The Michigan Department of Education is required by law to develop content expectations in the required course/credit areas, guidelines in other course/credit areas, and exit examinations in at least the required course/credit areas.
The Secondary Credit Assessment System (SCAS) is comprised of three components:
Summative assessments (end-of-course examinations)
Interim benchmark assessments
Formative assessment strategies
Each component provides information about student achievement of the content standards.
