SMARTER BALANCE ASSESSMENTS

Common Core State Standards third and fourth grade student Smarter Balanced Assessments will be taken on a desktop computer with a mouse for better manipulation enabling students to provide complete answers to questions.  We are doing our part at school to provide practice using a mouse in our computer lab and in classrooms.  However, this is not an easy task because of the many smaller devices that children use daily that do not require a mouse. It will help your child a great deal to practice navigating and manipulating with a mouse if the opportunity presents itself at home. Assessments will be administered in the spring, and the date will be provided as soon as confirmed.  Because this is a year of learning and growing with Common Core, these assessments are a “trial run” to determine logistic capabilities, and result data will not be available.  Please see Mrs. Evans if any questions.
