The Nebraska Student-Centered Assessment System (NSCAS), pronounced “en-skass,” is a statewide assessment system from the Nebraska Department of Education that began use in 2017-18. It uses multiple measures throughout the year to provide educators and decision makers at all levels with the insights they need to support student learning. Many Lincoln Public Schools teachers have been involved in the development of the assessments used across the state.
