Blinkin’s Daily Work April 12-16

April 12 - April 16

STANDARDIZED TESTING

State guidelines require that all students in grades 3-10 participate in standardized testing each school year. This year we will be using a new assessment called the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress – MAP Growth. It will be administered to all students online, using a computer. During the 3 days of testing, students will have a modified schedule, attending their regularly scheduled classes after testing, beginning at 12:00 pm.

Students have the opportunity to take practice tests to become familiar with the new testing format.  Please click on the ‘Practice Test Link’ below to access the practice tests.
