The RISE (Readiness, Improvement, Success, Empowerment) is the end of year Summative Assessment.
The RISE is an item-adaptive test meaning that if students correctly answer questions, the test gets more difficult and if students incorrectly answer questions the test gets easier. The RISE has depth of knowledge questions which require students to give written answers as opposed to only answering multiple choice questions. The RISE uses many onscreen tools.
We will spend some time at school preparing for this testing format so students become more familiar with the line of questioning and utilizing the tools. It will be helpful if you will also practice at home.
To access the Practice tests from home use either a Firefox or Google Chrome browser and visit utahrise.org. Click on the Training Test button. There are varying grade levels available to practice. Click on this document, Accessing Practice Tests, for more detailed instructions on accessing the Practice Tests from home.
No scores are given; these tests are for the purpose of familiarizing students and parents with the format of the questions and the use of the online tools. We appreciate all your efforts as we know it takes a whole community to raise the future generation.
