State Testing: April 6-May 15th for Grades 3-6th.
These computer-based tests will replace California's former paper-based, multiple-choice Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) assessments in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and math and will be aligned to the new California State Standards. One particular area of concern is the anticipated "dip" in student scores. It is important to understand that these new results will measure proficiency on a different and more rigorous curriculum, using an assessment system that is new for students and teachers. "Proficiency" on these new standards is not comparable to proficiency on the previous state standards, and student results should be considered in this context. Scores from the new assessments will represent a baseline and no student, parent or teacher should be discouraged by the scores. Rather, the results will provide an opportunity to focus on the needs of students and support teachers and schools in their work. For this month, please be sure to have your student get a good night of rest and a hearty breakfast!
