Assessment Information Night

Assessment Info Night

Last spring, your student took a new online assessment in literacy and/or mathematics that was aligned with DoDEA's College and Career Ready Standards. This assessment, the College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS) Summative Assessment, is designed to measure your child's mastery of the new, rigorous college and career ready standards in Mathematics and Literacy. The assessment was administered in the following subjects and grades; Mathematics (Grades 3-6), Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and in Literacy for Grades 6-8 and for Grade 10.

Our school will host an Assessment Information Night for Parents 4:30 on October 11, 2018, at the Fort Rucker Primary School Cafeteria. Parents will receive their child's Individual Student Report (ISR) for the assessments they took; see video messages from the DoDEA Director, Mr. Thomas Brady and DoDEA's Associate Director for Performance and Accountability, Dr. Judith Minor; and hear a presentation about the assessment and how to read your child's results. See attached flyer.
