Quarter and Local Assessments--All Grades
Kindergarten-2nd Grade students complete performance and on-demand tasks in the classroom near the end of each end-of-quarter in math, reading, and writing. These assessments are provided by WS/FCS to help teachers measure each child's grasp of objectives taught during the quarter and to help teachers track students' reading, math, and writing progress.
Kindergarten-3rd Grade students complete DIBELS and TRC reading assessments with their teachers 3 times a year (beginning, middle, and end of the year). Some students will also have their progress monitored multiple times during the quarters with these assessments. Look for a parent report to go home after each benchmark assessment.
3rd-5th Grade students complete WS/FCS created local assessments at the end of first, second, and third quarters. These assessments mimic NC's EOG tests in format and style, except for the science tests (which are online at the end of the year). They are multiple choice assessments and measure student mastery of objectives taught during the quarter. During the 1st and 2nd quarter, the assessments are administered in the regular classroom over the course of multiple days. During the 3rd quarter, they are administered in a "practice EOG" format, with both an administrator and proctor to give students an opportunity to experience the EOG testing format.
