Today at CDMS: CONGRATULATIONS EIGHTH GRADERS for completing their fifth and final unit of the 2015 PARCC PBA. What does this mean for CDMS? With the exception of make-up testing currently scheduled for March 23rd, 24th, and 25th, the 2015 PARCC PBA is complete. A very special thanks and appreciation to our students for their commitment throughout their new testing process.
Today at CRES: Today, our third graders completed Unit 2 of PARCC’s ELA PBA. On Monday, students will complete Unit 3 before moving on to mathematics on Tuesday and Wednesday. As our third graders are the last of our CRES students to participate in PARCC, we have been very pleased with the minimal amount of issues, to date. Keep up the GREAT work, third graders!
Just to share….the New Jersey Department of Education has shared a website containing editorials, opinions and op-eds on PARCC. The website was made by a coalition of educational organizations and can be accessed at the following address: https://storify.com/NJEdStories/parcc-local-support
We continue to be so very proud of our Colts Neck students as they are progressing through the 2015 Spring PBA of PARCC.
CRES: Today, our third graders took to the keyboards for the first time with ELA, Unit 1, Literacy Analysis. Little fingers were typing and moving pointers throughout our testing sessions. We are so very proud of their efforts today! Please know, that aside from any make-up tests, students in grades four and five have successfully completed all five PBA PARCC Units.
CDMS: In the HOOOOOOOME stretch. Our eighth graders have stepped up to the PARCC plate and have completed all three ELA Units. Today, students in grade eight will complete Unit 1 of Mathematics. Please keep in mind, your child’s testing time is dependent upon his or her mathematics course. For example, students in “Grade 8 Mathematics” had 80 minutes of testing while students in “Algebra I” had 90 minutes. Please note, testing timeframes were established by PARCC.
