CMS Students Gear Up for Testing

 

This year CMS students will take the Smarter Balanced field test assessment.  The Smarter Balanced practice run of assessments aligned to the Common Core in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics consists of two parts. The Field Test is a practice run of the assessment system that helps ensure that questions are accurate and fair for all students.  It also gives teachers and schools a chance to gauge their readiness in advance of the first operational assessment in spring 2015. Due to the computer component of the assessment, students will be on a modified testing schedule (see calendar below). Start and end times of the school day will remain the same, but students will only go to three classes a day for a longer block period.


The week of April 15th students will attend the following classes:
Monday (all 6 periods)
Tuesday: HR, Per 2, Break, Per. 4, Lunch, Per. 6
Wednesday: Per. 1, Break, Per. 3, Lunch, Per. 5
Thursday: HR, Per 2, Break, Per. 4, Lunch, Per. 6
Friday: HR, Per 1, Break, Per. 3, Lunch, Per.5                                                     

5th and 8th graders will state take the CST assessment in Science on May 6th (part I) and May 8th (part II). Please have your child arrive to school on time daily, ready to test! If you have additional questions about the assessment calendar, please fill free to contact the office.

Thank you for your support.
