Teachers and staff have been working diligently to make sure these identified standards are covered before the test is given. The test will be presented by a new testing company. The test may look quite different from the test in the past. During this testing period, your child will benefit from getting proper rest, eating a healthy breakfast at home or at school, and we would appreciate you not scheduling appointments during this time, so that your child will not have to take makeup tests.
The IREAD test will be given to third grade students the week before Spring Break beginning on Monday. Students need to make sure they are at school, as we will need to be complete and have all make-ups taken by Thursday as Friday begins our Spring Break. The IREAD test measures students' abilities to identify beginning sounds, ending sounds, median vowel sounds, reading ability and comprehension. It is a measure of the students' skills they have learned in Kindergarten through third grade. Any time you can help your child with homework, read to them, and have them read to you, it is so helpful. Talking about books is a great way to help with comprehension.
