Badger Exam

Tomorrow we are taking a PRACTICE Badger Exam.  Students are either taking the Math or ELA portion of the test to practice.  They will be getting experience with both as the weeks go on.  We want them to become familiar with the test and its format.  It requires using their iPad and answering questions in ways they are not used to.

What is the Badger Exam?
The Badger Exam is a computer based summative assessment administered in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics. The estimated time for test administration is around 4 hours for ELA assessments and around 3-4 hours for the mathematics assessment. The tests are not timed. The Badger Exam includes multiple choice, constructed response, technology-enhanced questions, and performance tasks.

Who takes the Badger Exam?
All students in grades 3-8 take the Badger Exam.

What are the testing dates for the Badger Exam Assessment?
The Badger Exam will be administered during the last 8 weeks of the school year between March 30th and May 22nd.

If you want more information about the exam itself, the district put together a presentation.  You can find that presentation here.  Additionally, here is a brochure the district put together.

For tomorrow, we are offering a FREE breakfast for all scholars from 7:15-8:00.

Please try to have your scholar get a good night sleep and come with a charged iPad.
