CALDWELL PARISH SCHOOLS GEAR UP FOR TESTING

Caldwell Parish Schools Gear Up for Spring Testing

          We’re gearing up for success on the test! As many know, Caldwell Parish students in grades 3-8 will be taking the LEAP 2025 test this spring.  There are some big changes this year as our students in Grades 5-8 take the LEAP 2025 online for the first time.  One of the benefits of the online test is that testing will be spread out over the entire month of April and the first week of May.  As a result, students in Grades 5-8 will only test one subject per week on the computer for ELA, Math and Social Studies during the month of April.  Students will take the Science test on paper on May 5th. Students taking 8th grade Algebra I will take the End of Course (EOC) tests on May 2nd-4th. 

Our district is a “B” district which shows that our students can compete with the best! Instead of dreading the test, we want our students to “show up and show off”! Parents can help, too! Making sure your child is well rested and at school, on time, each day of testing can make a big difference in their performance. Breakfast is a must to feed those brains, so if your child has breakfast at school, let’s make sure car riders arrive early enough to power up on breakfast!

The schools in our district have done some wonderful things to encourage our students to do their best on the test. But there’s nothing like hearing it from family! Your support of all of their hard work is priceless! We believe in them and hope that you will join us in sending them into spring testing with a great attitude and pride in their efforts! Together Everyone Achieves More! We appreciate all we know you’ll do to help make this year’s testing results be the best ever for Caldwell Parish schools!

HOW CAN PARENTS HELP?

 

  1. SAMPLE TEST ITEMS

You can see samples of science and social studies test questions and student work by visiting the Department’s website here: http://www.louisianabelieves.com/resources/library/released-and-sample-test-items

 

Sample ELA and math test questions and student work can be found here: https://prc.parcconline.org/assessments/parcc-released-items

 

  1. PRACTICE TESTS

The Department released practice tests for ELA, math, and social studies in grades 3-8 on its website:  http://www.louisianabelieves.com/resources/library/practice-tests

 

New paper-based practice tests for 2017 have been released for grades 3 and 4 only, since these are the only grades with the option to test on paper. However, paper practice tests from 2015- 2016 are available for grades 5-8.

 

These practice tests will help you better understand how the test is aligned to classroom work, and see the types of reading, math, and writing questions your child will be answering. You may want to walk through the test with your child to help familiarize him or her with the test format and features, and answer any questions he or she might have.
