Each year, the district administers several state and local assessments to our students. The information obtained from these assessments aids our teachers’ understanding of your child’s strengths and needs in order to design instruction accordingly. If possible, please avoid scheduling outside appointments during testing time. With the exception of the IAR test, each classroom may participate in these assessments at different times throughout the testing window, so you may have to refer to each teacher’s particular testing schedule.
Below, please find general assessment information. To your right, you can navigate to specific district assessments for more information.
NOTE FOR ASSESSMENT CALENDAR BELOW
I am happy to report that for the past couple of weeks, NWEA MAP assessment system has been operating without issue. With some students returning soon to in-person learning, it is advantageous to begin MAP testing after the students return to school. Testing students in-person will allow teacher proximity for students who may need additional support and ensure that tech issues can be solved in-person with our specialists. Therefore, our new fall MAP window will run between October 19th-November 11th. The schools will share the specific grade-level testing dates with our third- through eighth-grade families once those dates are scheduled. Students who elect for entirely remote instruction will be provided the option to test remotely or in-person. More information about these testing options will be shared with these families next week.
We appreciate our families’ flexibility as we adjusted to unplanned technological issues. Please let me know if you have any questions.
