State and Local Assessment Information for 2016-2017

posted Aug 5, 2016, 12:09 PM by Blake Byall
With the school year upon us, the controversial and confusing topic of assessment soon follows. Kim School is dedicated to making this process as time-efficient and painless as possible.  In an effort to help students, parents, and community members become better informed, we have included the links below to information published by CDE.  Our hope is to produce informed stakeholders while preparing our students to perform to the best of their capabilities.  The majority of test scores last year were positive and indicate students are performing at a high level, while the growth rates continue to impress. 

NWEA:  All students will take these computer tests at the beginning and end of the year.  Content assessed includes; Math, Science, English, and Language Arts. 

PARCC/CMAS:  The state-level assessment that occurs in April.  These tests cover English/Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies (on a three year rotating basis).  The majority of Kim's Educator Effectiveness--how well we are doing in the principle job of educating our children--is predicated upon these results.  All 3rd-9th Graders take these exams over a two week period.

PSAT: The Pre-SAT exam is designed for 10th Graders. It is also given in the spring.  The results of this exam are used to prepare students for taking the SAT Exam.

SAT:  The Scholastic Aptitude (or Assessment) Test is designed for 11th Graders in the spring.  It is primarily a test used to determine college readiness of our students.

Many other assessments may present themselves over the course of the school year.  Kim works to limit the number and frequency of these events in order to provide a maximum focus on education exposure.
