Untitled. Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence (SAGE) - English Language Arts (ELAs) and Literacy The purpose of the ELA and Literacy SAGE is to measure student understanding of the Utah State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects.


This is only one measure of student understanding in a standardized manner. It should be interpreted accordingly. The test is composed of a set of questions and writing prompts which require students to demonstrate their skills and knowledge of core concepts in several ways. The ELA and Literacy Core Curriculum consists of content area standards in Reading Informational and Literary Text, Writing, Speaking, Listening, and Language.
