SC Ready Testing Information
Dear 3-5 Parent/Guardian,
In the upcoming weeks, we will begin our end-of-year testing here at Camden Elementary School. The South Carolina College and Career READY Assessment (SC READY) is a statewide assessment in English Language Arts (Paper Based), Mathematics (computer-based), and Science (computer-based), which will assess student performance in South Carolina College and Career Ready Standards. For more information on the tests, please visit http://ed.sc.gov/tests/middle/sc-ready/. The SC READY assessment is not timed (estimated 2 ½ hours each day) and will be administered on both the computer and paper. Students will not be released while testing is in progress on their testing day. Please refer to the following testing schedule:
May 2nd – ELA 1 (Writing) -P aper
May 4th – ELA 2 (Reading)-Paper
May 19th – Math -Computer
May 11th- Science (Fourth Grade Only)-Computer
Please take the time to review this with your child. Test results will provide vital information regarding how your child is progressing at his/her grade level. Students who are currently served under an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) or a 504 will receive accommodations during testing. Please make sure that your child gets adequate sleep and has a good breakfast on testing days to ensure a successful testing experience. Parents are encouraged to have their children to school on time and avoid making appointments for their children on these dates. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 425-8960.
Mrs. Beth A. White, M.Ed.
