MMS NC Check-Ins

MMS NC Check-In #2 are coming up the week of January 24th. Please read for more information about the NC Check-Ins.

NC Check-Ins are interim assessments that are aligned to the NC grade-level content standards (for reading and mathematics) and North Carolina Essential Standards (for science).

The main purpose of NC Check-Ins is to provide students, teachers, and parents with immediate in-depth action data and a reliable estimate of students’ current performance on selected subsets of content standards. The end-of-grade (EOG) tests share a common question bank with the NC Check-Ins, which then exposes NC Check-In students to similar question types and rigor found on the EOGs.

The NC Check-In administration dates are as follows:
ELA - Tuesday, January 25th
Math - Wednesday, January 26th
Science 8 - Thursday, January 27th

If you have any questions or concerns about the NC Check-Ins, please contact Damien Akelman (dakelman@mgsd.k12.nc.us)
