About the Iowa Assessments
The Iowa Assessments help determine how students are performing on nationwide standards. These assessments measure achievement in several important content areas including Reading, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. The Iowa Assessments help teachers identify a student’s strengths and areas that may need additional emphasis. Please click the link below for exact tests your student(s) will take.
Iowa Test Dates & Content Area
How your student can prepare for test taking—and what you can do to help
A student who is well rested and well fed and has a positive attitude about testing is best prepared for testing. You can help your student do his or her best by considering these tips:
- Make sure that your student is in school and on time on test days. Reschedule dentist appointments and other out-of-school time on non-testing days.
- Make sure your student gets a good night’s sleep and eats a healthy breakfast before each day of testing.
- Remind your student that these tests are only one measure of what he or she has learned. Emphasize that you have confidence in his or her ability to do the best job possible.
- Remind your student to listen to the directions and read each question carefully during testing. Encourage your student to ask the teacher for help if he or she does not understand the directions.
Morning Arrival & Afternoon Dismissal
Parents, during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal, parents are not allowed to park in local areas, walk to the school, and pick up their child(ren). This is a major hazard as buses are in the front of the school and we do not want to place any family at risk of danger by a motor vehicle. Therefore, if you elect to pick up your child via car, please obtain a car pool number and join us in car pool in the morning and afternoon.
Hispanic Heritage Month
Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15, 2017 and ends October 15, 2017. Hapeville Elementary will have a performance celebrating Hispanic culture on Thursday, October 12th in the auditorium. The anniversary of independence for five Latin American countries—Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico declared its independence on September 16, and Chile on September 18.
The term Hispanic or Latino, as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, refers to Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race. On the 2010 Census form, people of Spanish/Hispanic/Latino origin could identify themselves as Mexican, Mexican American, Chicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban, or "another Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin." According to the 2010 Census, 50.5 million people or 16% of the population are of Hispanic or Latino origin. This represents a significant increase from the 2000 Census, which registered the Hispanic population at 35.3 million or 13% of the total U.S. population.
