September 8-14 our seventh graders will be participating in the Cognitive Abilities Test and the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. Please make sure your child is here on time, has eaten breakfast, and is ready to do their best! Please remind them that these tests are only one measure of what he or she has learned. Emphasize that you have confidence in his or her ability to do the best job possible.
The tests will help identify a student’s strengths and weaknesses and areas that may need additional emphasis.
The school will receive test scores in about 6-8 weeks and parents will receive and individual student score report for the Iowa Assessments. These scores will indicate how your child performed on tests compared with students across the nation in the same grade.
Also, testing will begin promptly at 9:20 a.m. so don’t be late!
