Smarter Balanced Assessments began this week for students in grades 3-5. The SBA Assessment exposes students to Common Core English/Language Arts questions and Mathematics problems. In addition to the SBA assessments, our students in grade 5 will be taking the NGSS Science Field Test.
Remaining SBA Testing Schedule
Grades 3 - 5
5/2, 5/3 & 5/4
Science Testing - Grades 5
NGSS - Science Field Test
5/9 and 5/10 (if needed)
We hope students will not be absent during the testing period, except for illness, and that they will strive to do their very best.
Students have been working hard all year and have been exposed to test-like items, testing language, vocabulary, and the format of the platform in order to ease anxiety and build familiarity with the assessment.
Here are some ways you can help us from home:
Make sure your child arrives at school on time. If he or she is late, your child will not be able to enter the classroom until testing is done for the day. A make-up test will be given at another time by one of the specialists so your child will miss classroom instruction.
Make sure your child has a nutritious breakfast.
Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep. Children can’t do their best work when they are tired.
Tell your child to remember past tests where he or she did well and remind your child that he or she can do well again!
Reassure your child. Let your child know that all you expect is his or her best effort.

In addition to the SBA state assessments, we will be administering our district iReady assessments in mid-May to early June.
All the Best,
