Students Testing


Currently students are in the process of completing the middle of the year benchmarks.

  • Grades K-2 are taking the MAP test for both reading and math.

  • All grades have taken or will be taking the DIBELS reading tests (which are a series of short, one minute screeners to determine how students are progressing on foundational reading skills.

  • Many of the 3rd and 4th grade classes are taking the SBAC IABs which are like mini practice tests.


The data from all of these tests help drive our instruction and plan for small groups.
