Dear Parkwood Parents and Community,
Our new on-line testing computer based test will be occurring at the end of this month and beginning of May for third to sixth grade students. This is an innovative way to assess our student on their academic achievement throughout the year. Student will be given a Computer Adaptive Test that will provide questions for them based on their correct/incorrect answers. They will also be provided a performance task where they will be given a problem; work collaboratively with other students, then go on the computer and write an essay.
This is a very challenging task, which is why we need your help to assure our students are ready to do their best!
-Make sure your child gets a good night sleep.
-Make sure your child has a good breakfast at home or here at school. Breakfast stops serving at school at 7:50 a.m.
-Make sure your child comes to school on the day of their testing on time, we will provide specific dates as we come closer to testing.
-Continue to encourage your child throughout the test by asking what questions they encountered.
These are the little things that make a huge difference, and I am sure your child will have a great advantage as they proceed throughout their testing.
As always, thank you for your continued support.
Parkwood Elementary School will provide all students with a superior education so they will realize their potential, pursue their dreams and become productive community members with high moral character.
