In the spring of the school year is time for schools to give exams. In the past our students have taken the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills or ITBS. This year our students and most of the students in the rest of the state of Wisconsin in grades 3-8 are taking what is called the Badger Exam. The Badger Exam was created by the Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium. This is a group of states working together to develop the next generation of assessments. These will be given on our Chromebook computers. They are designed to give our school and the state the kind of information that will measure student progress towards college and career readiness.
This online test will assess students on how well they understand English Language Arts which is reading and writing and mathematics. Testing begins next Tuesday, March 24. Parents can help by making sure that their children get plenty of sleep. They can also help by talking about how important it is to try hard and do their best possible work. If you have any questions about this new testing, please feel free to contact Mrs. Ettlie or Ms. Klein at either office.
