The Fulton County Schools Assessment Department is pleased to announce that we are moving to a new norm referenced test this school year. Fulton County students have taken the ITBS Form A as part of Fulton County's balanced assessment plan for many years. ITBS Form A was published 15 years ago with content from approximately 1995 and has ten year old norms.
In October, students in grades 3, 5, & 8 will be taking the Iowa Assessment Form E. Students will take the test online and schools anticipate receiving student level results in a usable electronic format within 5 business days. This school year will become a baseline year for trend purposes.
To accommodate online testing and to allow schools flexibility, the testing window is expanded to October 17th through November 4th. Shakerag will develop our schedule in this window and will inform parents of specific dates as more information and communication materials become available in the coming weeks. If you have any questions, please contact our testing coordinator, Mr.Campbell.
The TAG teachers are busy screening and testing new students for TAG. The timeline runs from September 26th until October 14th. During this time there will be no TAG classes held.
