Hello Hankey Families,
TEST RESULTS ARE HERE!! The state of California has officially released the results from the 2015 Spring assessments yesterday. Families with students who took those assessments should be receiving individual reports mailed home soon.
Since these tests and reports are brand new, I thought I would share a video prepared by the California Dept of Education (CDE), which explains how to read the new student reports. CAPTA.org has links to this video in Spanish and English as well as links to grade level parent guides to the new assessments on its homepage.
In addition this week, EdSource published an article answering many frequently asked questions that come up when discussing the new assessments. That article is available at:
Since this test is brand new, you cannot compare the results from the tests in the spring to the results from tests taken in the past. These results will set a baseline for future comparisons and guiding instruction in the future.
For those of you interested in exploring additional data, the California Department of Education has results for every school and district as well as a ton of additional resources available at: http://caaspp.cde.ca.gov/.
I hope you find this information useful.
