Assessments in reading include sub-test areas of reading comprehension, reading fluency, general vocabulary, sight-word vocabulary, and decoding (phonics). Assessments in writing include sub-test areas of writing organization, writing fluency, mechanics, and spelling. Reading and writing assessments are scheduled over a two-hour block of time.
Assessments in the area of math include the sub-test areas of numeration, rational numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, measurement, time and money, estimation, interpreting data, problem solving, statistics, algebra, and geometry.
Assessments are normally scheduled after school or on Saturday mornings. Math assessments are scheduled over an hour and a half block of time. Assessment results are provided to parents in a private conference ten minutes after the assessment is completed.
