Dear Parent or Guardian:
Our school is one of many in the country participating in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Field Test this spring. Schools in 22 states will administer the online assessment in mathematics and/or English starting this April.
The Smarter Balanced assessments are a key part of implementing our new academic standards and preparing all students for success in college and careers. When the assessments become operational in the 2014-2015 school year, they will provide an academic checkup by measuring real-world skills like critical thinking and problem solving. In addition, they will provide information during the year to give teachers and parents a better picture of where students are succeeding and where they need help. This practice run of the assessments will be used to evaluate the testing software, ensure the quality of assessment questions, and evaluate the effectiveness of the assessment administration and training materials. It also provides teachers and students at our school an opportunity to preview the types of questions that will be part of the Smarter Balanced assessments and practice test administration procedures.
For our school, students in 3rd through 6th grades have been selected to take the Field Test in English Language Arts and Math]. The assessment will take place between April 16 and May 13, and will take [three to four/six to eight] hours of your child’s time. The assessment will be administered over multiple days. Participation is confidential, and your child’s grades will not be affected. For a more specific timeline on testing for your child's classroom, see our Rolling Hills Family Calendar.
If you would like more information about Smarter Balanced, please visit the Smarter Balanced website at http://www.smarterbalanced.org/. If you have any questions regarding your child’s participation, please email your child's teacher or me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
