Next week, all freshmen students will take part in the new state assessment: the AIR test. This test will assess our students’ mastery of the Common Core Standards.
Today in class, we spent some time on the practice site, focusing on the tools provided on the digital testing platform. Below are some resources in case you’re interested in seeing the testing platform, sample questions, and sample responses.
- Student Practice Site: On this site, students and parents can access sample tests. This will enable students to practice navigating the test and using the tools. It will also provide a few samples of the kinds of questions students will take.
- Practice Site Answer Key: In class, students will review a sample essay. This link will provide additional sample responses.
- Sign In Tutorial: This is a seven-minute tutorial that teaches students how to log in to the test and reviews basic test function. These instructions will also be provided prior to each testing session.
- Testing Tools Tutorial: This is a seven-minute tutorial that teaches students how to use the testing tools, such as answer eliminator, question flagger, text highlighter, etc.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
