Smarter Balanced Assessment Schedule

Each year, C.R. Anderson students are assessed to measure their progress and give us a valuable tool to look at student achievement levels and our programs that serve students.  All C.R. Anderson students will be taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment.  We are field testing the new state-wide assessment in math and language arts.  The testing window for the Smarter Balanced Assessment is March 18th-May 14th.  Because much of this assessment will be done on the computer and our computer labs are limited, each grade level will have a different test schedule (which will be made public as we finalize the dates).

 These tests are very valuable for both you and the school.  We appreciate you making every effort to ensure that your student is present on the test days.  If there is a conflict with one of the test days or times, please let us know through your school counselor as soon as possible.

 We would also like to offer a couple of suggestions so that students will have a chance to do their best on the test.  It is always important that students get a good night of sleep and eat a healthy breakfast but especially important when taking assessments.  We would ask that you take a minute to talk to your student about the importance of doing his/her best on the tests.  These assessment tools will be used by the school, the state and the Federal government to assess the effectiveness of our school programs.

Thank you in advance for supporting us and our students with the assessment process.

Below is the schedule.
