This year the state administration of the Measurement of Student Progress (MSP) is available on line. Our school has decided to test grades 3-5/Math, Science (only 5th), Reading) online. The test questions are the same as paper/pencil version, but shown in different order on each computer screen for test security. Students will have the same amount of time to take the test as before and there are tools built into the presentation for students to use. The test window is extended for the online version to allow all students time in the computer lab. The writing test will continue to be paper/pencil due to the volume of handwritten response. Your child’s teacher will be sending home notification of specific dates for online tests that we are involved in this year. We want our students to be well prepared and comfortable with the online format as this moves forward.
Please ensure your child is rested, has a good breakfast and comes to school ready to focus on the MSP. If you would like to view a demonstartion of this test and also take a sample test with test questions in the different subjects and grades please go to OSPI’s link: http://www.k12.wa.us/Assessment/StateTesting/OnlineTesting.aspx The box on the right has the downloads for you to view.
All students will have the opportunity to see both the DEMO and the Online Training Tools (Sample test) at school. Viewing it at home, with parents, is encouraged as well.
If you have further questions, please contact Jeffrey Riley – firstname.lastname@example.org – 206 252 2511
Thank you for your support in helping to make this a successful experience for our students.
