An Update From The Bear Den
It is a very busy and important week at Danville Elementary. Students in grades 3 - 6 will be taking the Iowa Statewide Assessments of Student Progress (ISASP). While this test is a standardized test, it is very different from the standardized tests that you may have taken in school.
The students will be taking the test on the computer and will be tested in Reading, Language Arts & Writing, and Math. Students in 5th grade will also take the Science test. Students will be testing each morning Monday through Wednesday this week. In addition, our 5th graders will test on Friday morning. Students that are absent for one or more of the ISASP sessions, will make up their assessment(s) on Friday morning.
At Danville Elementary we will use the assessment results to make curricular decisions and see where changes need to made in instruction to address the needs of all Danville students. We encourage you to speak to your child about doing his/her best on these tests in order to assist the district in making educational decisions. Thank you!
