Smarter Balanced Assessment – Testing Information
Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBAC) are the next generation of student assessment and will replace the MSP inWashington State. All students in grades 3 – 6 will take the test in both mathematics and English language arts/literacy. In addition, 5th grade will take the Science MSP this year.
Our school plans to administer the tests on April 26th- June 2nd. Please limit out of school times, specifically on the dates your child is testing. The testing schedule and makeup dates are provided. It is complicated and difficult to make up these tests. All of the assessments will usually begin at 9:15 am and students will be provided with as much time as they need to complete them.
If you have any questions regarding the upcoming SBA, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher, Mr.Tadlock or the school assessment coordinators, Pamela Uran or Julie Harris.
On time attendance is very important! Please review this information carefully. It’s very helpful for students to attend on the dates listed; please limit appointments and early dismissals.
If you have questions, contact your teacher or Mr. Tadlock.
Thank you for helping us with perfect attendance during state testing!
Thank you for your support and understanding,
Meridian Park Staff
