Welcome to Twain

Dear Parents,

Spring has arrived and so has our testing window.  We will begin MAP testing the week after spring break. Measurement of Student Progress (MSP 5th Science) and Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC ) in reading, writing, and math will begin at the end of the month and into May.  The MSP and SBAC will be given to all students in grades 3rd - 5th. Please do not schedule any appointments during testing. It is very important that your student be at school, on time and ready to do his/her best! Schedules will be sent home and posted on our website. 

Beginning in the 2014-15 school year, we will be piloting the Smarter Balanced system. Smarter Balanced test is a state-approved assessment replacing Measuring of Student Progress (MSP) in reading, writing and Math. Only 5th grade student will be taking the science MSP. As a result, Last year’s MSP scores will be used this year. If you have any question, visit OSPI’s website for more information at the following link https://www.k12.wa.us/assessment/StateTesting/default.aspx

Parents

 

You are a very important part of helping to prepare your child for the SBAC (reading writing math and Science MSP test for 5th grade.

Here are some tips for you to help prepare your child for testing day. Please do not schedule doctor or dentist appointments during testing days. Be sure your child has plenty of sleep. A nutritious breakfast the day of the test is necessary. Talk about the test and test preparations.

Helpful Tips for Students with Test Anxiety:

· Always think positively about the test.

· Realize that no one gets all the answers correct.

· Stay relaxed and take a few deep breaths when feeling overwhelmed.

· Take your time during the test and don’t get frustrated if others finish before you.

· Apply the good study habits and test-taking skills you have learned in class.
