SBAC TESTING MAY 8 - JUNE 1
You can find our school testing schedule here: SBAC Testing Calendar
Why is state testing required?
A: School districts and communities are different across the state. Families have the right to know how their child is progressing toward college and career readiness. And districts need to know if the curriculum they've chosen teach their students to the state learning standards is working, or if they should make adjustments.
What subjects are covered on our state tests?
A: State tests are based on the K-12 learning standards. Students are tested in English language arts, math, and science.
What types of questions appear on state tests?
A: The Smarter Balanced assessment system includes a variety of item types:
- Selected-response items prompt students to select one or more responses for a set of options.
- Technology-enhanced items take advantage of computer-based administration to assess a deeper understanding of content and skills than would otherwise be possible with traditional item types.
- Constructed-response items prompt students to produce a text or numerical response in order to collect evidence about their knowledge or understanding of a given assessment target.
- Performance tasks measure a student’s ability to integrate knowledge and skills across multiple standards. Performance tasks will be used to better measure capacities such as depth of understanding, research skills, and complex analysis, which cannot be adequately assessed with selected- or constructed-response items.
- The Smarter Balanced English language arts (ELA) and math practice tests are available to everyone. They allow students to experience items that look and function like those found on the interim and summative assessments. Logging in does not require a unique username and password, and advanced registration is not necessary.
HALLER CREATES A SAFE AND CARING ENVIRONMENT FOR STUDENTS
The teachers and staff at Haller Middle School want to make sure our school is a safe and caring place for your child. As stated in the school board policies and procedures and in our family handbook, harassment, intimidation and bullying will not be tolerated in our school. Our teachers and staff go through training at the beginning of the year to recognize the signs of harassment, intimidation and bullying and report such behavior accordingly.
If a student feels harassed or threatened in some way, they can make a complaint at the school. Informal reports may also be made to any staff member. Such complaints will be appropriately investigated and consistently handled. Students may also submit a report using the SafeSchools Alert incident reporting system that’s available on the front page of our school’s website.
Your child’s safety and wellbeing is a priority for us. We want them to thrive in a positive environment that promotes learning. Please call our main office if you have any questions.
