Louisiana State SpringTesting 2018
Recently parents of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students were invited to attend an informational testing meeting. In the spring of the 2018 school year our 5th graders will take the LEAP Test in a timed computer based format. Our 3rd & 4th graders will continue to take paper based tests. Our teachers have introduced those in attendance to online testing tools and typing.com in preparation of spring testing. We are asking parents to ensure 5th grade students take practice tests once a week on https://wbte.drcedirect.com/LA/portals/la and to be sure they practice 3 – 4 times per week on typing.com. Independent student practice is essential to be ready for the online assessment. Families of students unable to attend may request a copy of the handouts provided after the meeting. Send you request to your child’s homeroom teacher and we will send an additional copy home.
The spring testing period for 5th grade online assessments opens April 9th and closes on May 4th. The testing window for 3rd and 4th opens on April 30th and closes May 4th. Parents will receive a flyer containing the exact dates and times for each individual test at a later date. We will continue to provide updates regarding testing for each grade level as the information is available. We encourage families to review home assignments daily and to contact teachers for conferences as needed. Working together we can ensure student success this year and in the school years to come.
