The Fastbridge math testing happens 3 times in a school year in order to get a beginning, mid-year, and ending picture of each student’s progress.
The Smarter Balanced Assessments happen once a year in the spring to comprehensively measure student achievement in math and English Language Arts. The state of South Dakota requires annual summative testing. Testing takes place over a few days.
Formal assessments are a way to measure how students are reaching benchmarks with reading, language arts, and math. Ask our teachers if you have questions about the testing.
