State Testing Approaches

Here is some important information about this school year’s state tests.

Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Rather than multiple-choice questions, today’s tests ask students to explain their reasoning and, often, write out their answers. The new assessments measure more complex skills such as critical-thinking, writing, and problem solving so that schools and parents can assess whether children are on-track to graduate high school ready for college or a career.

Students will take the state tests again this coming spring. While the tests in English Language Arts and Math cannot tell us everything about your child’s academic progress, the results do act as a snapshot of your child’s strengths and areas for improvement in those subject areas. The tests help Bethel School District get a more complete and accurate picture of how all Bethel students are performing, as we assess curriculum, review instructional strategies, distribute resources, and continue to improve our educational system.

Here is more information if you have general questions or want more information about the Oregon State Assessments.

Bethel has always had a high participation rate on state assessments as both parents and staff have found value in this “point-in-time” check on the progress of our students and our educational system. However, parents in Oregon have the option to opt their children out of the state assessments. Here is the Opt-Out form that explains how you can opt your child(ren) out of state assessments this spring. Should you wish to opt your child out, please read the information carefully then print, complete, and return the form to our school’s main office by January 8th, 2019.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Enfoques de prueba del estado

Aquí se presenta información importante sobre las pruebas escolares estatales de este año.

Cada primavera, los estudiantes de Oregón en los grados 3 a 8 y 11 participan en evaluaciones estatales en Artes de la lengua inglesa y Matemática. En lugar de preguntas de opción múltiple, la prueba de hoy les pide a los estudiantes que expliquen su razonamiento y, a menudo, que escriban sus respuestas. Las nuevas evaluaciones miden habilidades más complejas como el pensamiento crítico, la escritura y la resolución de problemas, de manera que las escuelas y los padres puedan evaluar si sus niños están en buen camino para graduarse de la secundaria, están listos para la universidad o una carrera profesional.

Los estudiantes tomarán las pruebas estatales nuevamente la próxima primavera. A pesar de que las pruebas de Artes de la lengua inglesa y Matemáticas no nos dicen todo sobre el progreso académico de su hijo, los resultados funcionan como una instantánea de las fortalezas y áreas de mejora de su hijo en esas materias. Las pruebas ayudan al Distrito Escolar de Bethel a tener una imagen más completa y precisa de cuán bien se desempeñan los estudiantes de Bethel, ya que evaluamos el plan de estudios, revisamos las estrategias institucionales, distribuimos recursos y seguimos mejorando nuestro sistema educativo.

Aqui hay una hoja de datos si tiene preguntas generales o si desea obtener más información sobre las Evaluaciones del Estado de Oregón.

Bethel siempre ha tenido una alta tasa de participación en las evaluaciones estatales, ya que tanto los padres como el personal han encontrado valor en esta verificación del “punto en el tiempo” del progreso de nuestros estudiantes y nuestro sistema educativo. Sin embargo, los padres en Oregón tiene la opción de elegir que sus hijos no participen en las evaluaciones del estado. Aqui hay un formulario y mas informacion que le explica cómo puede elegir que su(s) hijo(s) no tome las evaluaciones estatales esta primavera. Si desea elegir que su hijo no participe, lea cuidadosamente la información y luego imprima, complete y envíe el formulario a la oficina principal de nuestra escuela antes del 8 de enero de 2019.

Si tiene preguntas, no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo.
