Each school year, in the fall and spring, Alexander Elementary students take part in statewide testing. In the fall our third grade students take an English/Language Arts (ELA) test and in the spring our third, fourth, and fifth grade students take ELA, Math, and Science tests (according to their grade level).
We here at Alexander attempt to foster an environment where these tests do not become issues of stress for our students, staff, and parents. We encourage each student to do their personal best.
Our fourth and fifth grade students take all tests online through school laptops. this is something that they are familiar with doing on a regular basis. For our third grade students, we have them take the test using paper and pencil.
