K-2 Performance Task Assessment

Good Afternoon EASE Families,

It looks like Spring has sprung!  I hope everyone is doing well and continuing to visit our website for event information.  I want to take a moment to remind you that next week, April 3th  – April 5th ,  all students in grades K-2 will be completing a Performance Task in English Language Arts.  Please plan to have your child participate in the assessment as it is a good tool for us to evaluate the effectiveness of our program.  It also helps identify areas where we need to increase services to ensure all of our EASE students are receiving the best education possible.  The data we collect will provide one snapshot of how your child is performing in comparison to their same-age peers.

Testing will be administered Monday – Wednesday.  There will be two testing blocks offered daily with Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade testing on different days.   The schedule is as follows:

2nd grade will test on Monday
Session A              8:30 – 9:30
Session B             9:30 – 10:30

1st grade will test on Tuesday
Session A             11:30 – 12:30
Session B             12:30 – 1:30

Kindergarten will test on Wednesday
Session A             8:30 – 9:30
Session B             9:30 – 10:30

The assessment is designed to take approximately 45 minutes.  Please choose one session block on the appropriate day for your child.  The assessments will be administered to the whole group at the same time, so please be here on time to start with the whole class.  Students do not need to bring anything with them except a positive attitude and a willingness to do their best

Thank you for helping us to ensure that your child and all EASE students are receiving the highest quality education possible.
