WV General Summative Assessment Information:
All students in 3-5 will be tested on the WV General Summative Assessment. The test measures how well a student is mastering the curriculum. Please be sure to have your child at school and on time each day during the testing cycle, and to make the morning as stress-free as is possible. Please talk to your child about giving their best efforts and taking the test seriously. We start in the morning and typically finish by 11:30 daily. Some parts take longer than others, but all tests are untimed. We stop when the students are finished.
