Ren360 MOY Assessment (Jan 19-Feb 12)
In order to measure student growth in the areas of Reading and Math for the 2020-2021 School year, the Renaissance 360 middle of the year (MOY) assessments will be administered January 19th - February 12th. During this window, FBISD teachers and staff will proctor the administration of the assessment for face-to-face AND online students. A separate notification went to parents on January 17 via email that outlined the REN360 middle of the year (MOY) assessments that are being administered. It is particularly important for parents of online students to read it, as we are relying on you to a degree to ensure it is successful. In the online testing environment, family members/caregivers may only help students get online and log into the test site. Once the test begins, students are NOT permitted to use other people, devices, or any other resources to help them answer test questions. For more information about Star Renaissance 360 Assessments, visit the Renaissance parent webpage.
