This spring, your child will take the Smarter Balanced tests in math and English language arts. Students in grades 8 will also take the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS).
This is the fourth year our state will administer the Smarter Balanced tests and the first year for the WCAS. The results from these tests will give a more accurate picture of whether students are on track to be ready for college or career.
Most students will take the tests online. Sager Middle School testing schedule is:
8th Grade Every Tuesday 4/24 - 5/22
7th Grade Every Tuesday 5/1- 5/22
6th Grade Every Wednesday 5/2-5/23
All Grades Every Thursday Makeup days.
Make sure your child is refreshed and on time to school on those days. Please try not to have any appointments scheduled for your child on their test days.
