Immediately following Spring Break, we will begin an intensive period of on-line testing for the state assessment. This test, formally called the MEAP, is now called M-STEP. To find out more about the test, please read this letter issued by the State Superintendent of Schools, Mike Flanagan: M-STEP Parent Letter
Our fifth graders will take the tests over a 2-3 week period of time beginning April 13. Fourth graders will take the test in the three weeks following this and finally, third graders will take the test the last three weeks of school.
Our Fifth Grade testing schedule is roughly outlined below. We ask that your child attend full day, everyday during the testing. Once a student has started the test, they cannot stop until completed. If the students stops midway through the test without completing it, all unanswered questions are wrong.
Classes taking the test every morning (9-12): Mrs. Walenta, Mrs. Gort, Mrs. Ball. Class taking the test in the afternoon (12:30-3:30), Mrs. Burdis.
