Marin Cape District students to begin assessments By Kerry Kester The Cape Henlopen School Dis- trict will begin assessing its stu- dents beginning the week of Mon- day, April 21. The Iowa Test of Basic Skills will be given as "off- grade" tests for students in grades two, four and seven. Students in grades three, fve, eight and ten will begin taking the state assessments in May. During the week of May 6, students in those grades will take the state writing assessment. They will have two-and-one-half hours to complete a pre-writing activity, read a prompt, write a draft, then edit and revise a final draft. They will be permitted to use a dictio- nary or thesaurus. ' The purpose of the state writing test is to assess student perfor- mance as it pertains to Delaware's academic standards. Once the tests are evaluated, the state will provide parents and the schools with information about each stu- dent's progress. During the week of May 20, Cape students will participate in the state's field testing of its new assessments for Engfish/language arts and mathematics. Students will take tests in one or the other of the two subjects, with the dis- trict choosing who will take which exaln. In the fall of this year, the dis- trict will participate in field tests for science and social studies in grades three, six, nine and eleven. Next spring Cape students will take the actual tests for English/language arts. The state will use data collected from the field assessments solely to determine the appropriateness of the test items. The scores will not be tallied for student, teacher, school or district evaluation. Parents can help their children prepare for good performance on the assessments, said John Kre- itzer, director of instruction. "In order for students to write well, they need to be relaxed and enjoy writing," said Kreitzer.. 'q'he best way for a child to be prepared for the state test is for parents not to raise their anxieties for the test situations. Parents should enc9urage them to do their best. That's all we ask of the stu- dents." Cape High PSTA to meet April 28 The Cape Henlopen PSTA will hold its general membership meeting on Monday, April 28 at 7 p.m. in the Little Theater.
