During the weeks of May 14th-June 8th, the students in grades K-3 will participate in the Spring Screening Process. The students are screened in Reading and Math for Fastbridge and Math with TenMarks. The TenMarks assessment helps us to determine the summer playlist for students to keep up their skills and practice. The Fastbridge Reading and Math help us to determine interventions and enrichment to close gaps and advance student achievement. The students take these assessments on the computer. They are administered one on one in K. Ms. Muccino, the Math Specialist and Dr. Carusi, the Reading Specialist facilitate this process and conduct Data Review Meetings at the End of the year. Progress is reported to the School Committee in late May and mid June. The students are also assessed in their progress in writing. These are district assessments and part of our curriculum. They determine how well we are implementing the curriculum and what we need to improve related to instruction.
If students are anxious in anyway, please reassure them of the purpose above and that we only ask that they try their best. These assessments do not determine placement in the next grade level.
