2014 State Public School Testing
Why Test Prep Is So Important This Year
When students take their required end of year state proficiency test, the main goal for schools is to know how much their students learned and retained over the course of the school year. Each state has a set of requirements, called the Performance Standards that outline what the expectations are for instruction, assessment, and student work. Besides just having the results back to see how the schools and teachers are doing, states have important “benchmark years,” where the students are held accountable for their scores, and must pass by a certain margin.
Ensure the Best Instruction~ The best way is to find a State Test Prep program that is aligned with your state standards. Students can learn “how” the questions are going to be asked and practice answering. If you choose to use Prep program, make sure the sessions are led by certified teachers.

Important Testing Years – For most states, these benchmark years are 3rd, 5th, and 8th grades. When the students take their end of year state test in these grades, they MUST pass the Reading/Language Arts and Math portions of the test in order to move on to the next grade. Students may need some assistance when preparing for this test, because the subject material covered is so extensive. (Check with your local board of education website for state specific testing.)
