Our students have just started taking the SAGE tests in English that have replaced the CRTs. Students will be taking SAGE tests for the next month. These tests are very important and tell students how they rank against their peers, note areas where a student may be behind and needs help, and helps teachers to see what parts of the curriculum that they may need to focus on more closely. Finally, our school can use the information to see who is learning and who is not. These tests now use critical thinking to answer questions – not just multiple choice questions. Testing critical thinking skills will help your child prepare for future high stakes tests in Junior High and High School. The SAGE test determines our school’s grade for the year. Please stress the importance of this test to your child.
Thank you in advance for your help and support. If you have questions about the SAGE test, please visit the SAGE website at: www.sageportal.org .
