Student TestingLater this spring, we’ll complete our Smarter Balanced Assessments for students in Grades 3-5. Unlike multiple-choice assessments, these State tests better align with the typical work we do in classrooms (i.e., think critically, analyze information, make a claim, cite and use multiple sources, prove answers, write, complete multi-step problems, communicate, etc.). At the same time, these tests allow for accommodations and supports for those whose needs require them. The Smarter Balanced results, like OAKS before it, provide valuable accurate measures of achievement and growth for each student at Clarkes.
