SMARTER BALANCED TESTING MARCH-MAY
 Washington State's new Common Core college-readiness standards have resulted in a new state test which is being given for the first time to FHS students this Spring.  This test is the Smarter Balanced Assessment, which will be given to students in more than 20 states starting this year.  The test is given in two subjects - English Language Arts (ELA) and Math.  Each test has a Computer-Adaptive test component, as well as a Performance Task, which is comprised of document-based questions and an essay for ELA and a long-form, multi-problem scenario for Math.  

GRADE 10 - Students will be taking the ELA test only in the Language Arts classes on selected dates from March 10 - April 3.  This test replaces the HSPE exam in meeting state testing graduation requirements for Reading and Writing.  The score required for graduation will be set by the state this summer.

GRADE 11 -  Students will be taking the ELA test in Language Arts classes in April and the Math test in their History classes in May.  Testing will run from April 6 - May 29.  Students passing these exams will be able to earn credit-bearing coursework in college and university system and five other states (including Oregon and California) without any remedial coursework or any additional placement exams.

MATH  TESTING WEEK OF MAY 26 - 29:
This is the final week of  Smarter Balanced testing for our Grade 11 kids.  Students of Mr. Mangum's CREATE classes will be doing the Math Performance Task section of the test, while Mr. Eaton's AOF and Humanities students will be doing the Computer Adaptive test portion of the Math test. We will close out the week with make-ups for students who missed any section of the test.

PRACTICE TEST:  We encourage all students and families of our 10th and 11th grade students to try out the Smarter Balanced practice test available online here to help them prepare for testing.

RESOURCES:  More information on the Common Core standards and the new tests can be found in this link from the state government, this other link from the Ready WA Coalition and another link from Seattle Public Schools.  

If you have any questions on state testing, please contact Jim Jeffreys, FHS Assessment Coordinator, at (206) 252-6218 or via e-mail.
