Testing

Third grade represents a big change for your child in terms of what and how they are assessed.  In the fall, your child will take both the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (Iowa) and the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT).  In the spring, your child will take his/her first Nebraska State Accountability Test.  In addition to those major tests, we will have weekly spelling and reading tests, as well as Unit Tests at the end of each Math unit.  In many instances, your child will be completing their exam using their own personal Chromebook computer.  This represents a lot of changes and something we will work to help kids become accustomed to this year.
