In addition to the AIMSweb tests, students will also take the Study Island math and reading benchmarks.
That's a lot of testing to begin the year. We'll repeat the testing process mid-year and at the end of the year. Additionally, we'll administer the Developmental Reading Assessment twice this year and give the PSSA (state assessment) in the spring.
I often find myself wondering if there is a way to streamline the process without sacrificing the information that is gained.
I'd love to hear your thoughts... Has testing begun in your district? What do you use? How often? How do you feel about it?
