ISTEP Readiness Test on Wednesday, January 20th from 9:30-10:30 a.m.

Grades 3-5 will be taking the ISTEP Readiness Test on Wednesday from 9:30-10:30 a.m. I have grade level testing tickets ready to go, so please stop by my office to get them. Please refer to the email I sent you Friday from Chris Clifford for the script. If Pearson gets one out to us before Wednesday, I will let you know.


Here are the directions to give the kids about opening the test from their Chromebooks:

Students must be signed out of the Chromebooks.

Students will click "Apps" in the bottom menu bar and select "TestNav."

If prompted, "Where do you want to go?" select "Indiana."
