From the Superintendent

We are moving another step closer to having our students ready for the Next Generation of Assessments in spring 2015. As of today, teachers and students can see sample items in math and English language arts and complete those items on the same technology platform they’ll be using in 2015. Students also can see training tests in science and social studies. Using these resources will help teachers and students feel more comfortable when it’s time to take the actual exams. Students will not receive scores for the sample items or training tests. 

For more details on how to access all of these resources, see the two items immediately following this letter.
