Illinois Science Assessment to be Administered Beginning Mar. 9

Students in Grades 5 and 8 will be taking the Illinois Science Assessment (ISA) next week, on March 9, 10, and 11. The test includes three sections and aligns with Illinois Learning Standards in science to prepare students for college and careers. Each testing session is estimated to be approximately 40 minutes long.

The format reflects classroom experiences and gives students authentic opportunities to demonstrate their understanding of science learning targets.

La Evaluación de Ciencias de Illinois será el 9 de marzo
Los estudiantes en los grados 5 y 8 realizarán la Evaluación de Ciencias de Illinois (ISA por sus siglas en inglés) la próxima semana, el 9, 10, y 11 de marzo. Esta prueba incluye tres secciones y está alineada con las Normas de Aprendizaje en Ciencia para preparar a los estudiantes para la universidad y carreras. Cada sesión es de una duración de aproximadamente 40 minutos.

El formato refleja las experiencias en el salón de clase y le da a los estudiantes oportunidades auténticas para demostrar su comprensión de los objetivos del aprendizaje en las ciencias.


Finally, it is time for me to start having discussions with our 6th and 7th grade students about behaviors in and around school.  I am pleased with our 8th graders (for the most part) but the younger two grades need to be reminded of a couple of things. In a very principal kind of way. Stay tuned. Don't forget to SPRING AHEAD and turn your clocks forward this weekend.
