Save the Dates – Spring Testing
Spring testing season is almost here – hopefully with it comes some Spring weather! 🙂 Please save the dates for the following upcoming assessments. We will send out exact grade level testing dates and times once our schedules are finalized.

5th grade IAAT TestingMarch 7th at 8:45 a.m.
Our 5th grade students will be taking the Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test (IAAT) assessment on March 7th. The IAAT is a group-administered assessment and will take approximately 50-minutes to complete.

The Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test is a criterion-referenced assessment that evaluates a student’s ability and readiness for success in algebraic concepts. IAAT is one data point that is used when determining math placement decisions for students entering 6th grade. The assessment is scored externally and your child’s score will be shared with you in the spring once the results are returned to us. If you have any questions regarding the Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test, please just let us know!
