In an effort to maximize instruction time for Hamlin students, state testing for Math and English Language Arts will be one week per grade level. Students will test during their core classes: ELA during ELA/SS bloc, and Math during math/science. They will attend their related arts classes and regularly scheduled nutrition break and lunch. The calendar for testing is as follows:

  • February 21, 2019: National Assessment of Educational Progress (fifty 8th graders will be notified in January if they are selected for testing in math or reading)
  • March 4, 2019: Deadline for Opt Out forms for 8th Grade OAKS Science Test
  • March 18-22, 2019: 8th Grade OAKS Science Test (tested during science class only)
  • April 15-19, 2019: 6th Grade Testing Week
  • April 29-May 3, 2019: 7th Grade Testing Week
  • May 6-10, 2019: 8th Grade Testing Week

Attendance is essential during these weeks. Students that are absent and do not complete the tests during the designated week will be pulled from their regular classes to complete the tests.
