Upcoming Student Testing - January 12th and January 19th through February 12th

This year your child will be taking a test called the Interim Comprehensive Assessment or ICA if they are in grades 3-8. Students in grades 1-2 will be taking Math and English Language Arts Assessments from their GoMath and Wonders Books. These tests will be administered to your child via Zoom from January 19th through February 26th. Students will complete a 'Dry Run' on January 12th (during this day, students will log into the test but not actually take it - we just want to make sure everyone is comfortable with the steps they will need to take during the real test). The data from these tests​ will help educators provide instruction and support to help your student succeed. Below you will find a Step by Step Guide of what your student will do in order to take these Assessments. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.  Thank you for your support.  Stay safe!
