Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA)will be administered to all students on 10/12, 10/13, 10/19, 10/20. Students will be given about 90 minutes each day to work on the reading and mathematics sections for their previous grade level. Sixth graders will be given additional time on 11/4 and 11/5 during science classes to complete the WCAS.
In the Spring the SBA will be administered to all students again. They will be given time to complete the reading and mathematics sections for their current grade level. Eighth Graders will be given additional time to complete the WCAS.
State law requires that schools provide an assessment of skills and knowledge in middle school. Sometimes parents want to have their students excluded from testing, whether it is state or district assessments. Chinook sometimes receives requests from parents to refuse state testing, with different reasons such as health or emotional concerns (test anxiety). If you would like your student to NOT participate in any of the state assessments this year, please fill out the State Assessment Refusal Form.
