Preparing Your Child For Assessments

Starting in third grade, students take multiple choice achievement tests in reading and math. The Oregon Department of Education mandates and prepares these tests in grades three and five. In grade four, students take district-developed tests.

Students take these tests in the spring of each year. The questions on these tests are a review of the work that students have been doing all year. To show how much students really know, it is important that students try their best. We encourage parents and children to read and talk about the test taking suggestions listed below.
