This is administered to grades 3 to 8 and 11.  The Smarter Balanced Test given in 11th grade can be used to qualify for college placement Early Assessment Program which could potentially wave the college placement tests given Senior year.


You will receive results which show student progress in these subject as measured with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics.  This information is used by teachers to inform their instructional practice.  If you do not want your child to participate in any part of this test you must submit in writing which tests you do not want your child to participate to the front office.
