Spring Picture Orders
We are quickly approaching the end of the school year and our End of Year Testing Window. In Grades 3-5, End of Year testing is administered in two windows. The first window includes NC Check-in testing and 3rd Grade Reading Fluency. These assessments help teachers monitor your child’s progress and prepare them for the state mandated End of Grade (EOG) assessments. NC Check-ins and Reading Fluency may be administered remotely. If your child is a fully remote student, you will receive a letter with remote instructions and codes for your child the week before testing. Face-to-Face students will complete testing on campus. These assessments will be completed during the week of April 19.
The second window includes EOGs for Grades 3-5. The NC Department of Education will require all state mandated EOG testing this school year. Testing will not be waived as it was in the 2019-2020 school year. All EOGs are required by the federal and state governments to be administered in person. There will be no remote option for EOGs. If your child is a fully remote student in Grades 3-5, you will be contacted shortly after Spring Break to set up your child’s EOG test sessions. All EOG testing will be completed the week of May 17.
Kindergarten through second grade End of Year testing includes Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) in reading and math growth and reading fluency. MAP Growth for Reading and Math assessments help teachers check student performance by measuring achievement and growth. End of Year proficiency is measured during this testing window. MAP Reading Fluency measures Foundations of Reading skills, like letter knowledge, and it measures oral reading for children who are ready. Both MAP Growth and Fluency may be administered remotely. If your child is a fully remote student, you will receive a letter with remote instructions and codes for your child the week before testing. Face-to-Face students will complete testing on campus. K-2 End of Year testing will be completed during the week of May 3.
