SBA Testing Begins

Teachers, SBA Testing begins this week, starting with Math.  Please remind students to be mindful of testing environments and to ensure that computers are charged and ready to go for testing.  Additionally, here are some notes from Marshall:

  1. Remind students that they should focus on doing their best on each test that they take.
  2. Please monitor and encourage all students to conserve battery power on their Chromebooks.
    • If your students do not have an educational need for the use of their Chromebook please have them put them away.
      • If you are able to defer use in non-testing classrooms, please do so.
    • If student devices are not fully charged, encourage students to charge them in your classroom when not in use.
  3. Remind students that they will need to bring their headphones and chargers for testingeach day.
    • Students who need earbuds will receive them in their testing rooms.
  4. Encourage students to refrain from disrupting testing environments during passing times.
  5. Please remember to have students silence cell phones, e-readers, and smart watches and place all their belongings in a location that is not accessible to them during testing.  Students may have a book under their chair to read when they complete the test.
