Dear Franklin Elementary School Families,
Connecticut has adopted challenging academic standards, including the Connecticut Core Standards (CCSS) in mathematics and language arts (LA) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The state has developed the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) to measure student progress in these subject areas with these learning goals. These results can show where a student is excelling and areas where a student may need extra support. Connecticut requires these assessments at the elementary and middle school levels, grades 3-8 with SBA, and grades 5 & 8 with the NGSS Assessment.
The Updated SBA Schedule: Gr 6-8 SBA Schedule: Gr 3-5
5/2 - Gr 8 NGSS 5/16 - Gr 5 NGSS
5/3 - Gr 6 Math Performance Task (PT) 5/17 - Gr 3-5 LA
5/4 - Gr 7 Math PT 5/18 - Gr 3-5 LA
5/5 - Gr 8 Math PT 5/19 - Gr 3-5 Math
5/9 - Gr 7 LA & Gr 6 Math 5/20 - Gr 3-5 Math
5/10 - Gr 8 LA & Gr 6 Math 5/24 - Gr 3-5 Math PT
5/11 - Gr 6 LA & Gr 7 Math
5/12 - Gr 7&8 Math
5/13 - Gr 8 Math
Please keep a few of things in mind throughout the testing windows:
Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or me if you have any questions regarding the SBA or NGSS, or visit the 2021-2022 Connecticut Student Assessment Main Page.
