Testing Coordinator: Jennifer Umbarger
Students in today's classrooms have to endure a lot of testing! This is an unfortunate reality but standardized testing is useful data for determining the academic proficiency and growth of our students as well as our school. We take our responsibility to best prepare our students for these tests very seriously. We hope that this information informs and empowers you to help support us in ensuring the success of your child.
In 2010, NC won a "Race to the Top" grant, which additionally mandates that all NC public school districts administer standardized tests called NC Final Exam (NCFE) in Social Studies to all students. Students in the 6th and 7th grade must also take an NCFE in Science.
The purpose of the EOGs is to determine whether or not each child is mastering curriculum objectives at a similar pace as their peers. This determination is made by evaluating the change in EOG scores from year to year. We refer to this change as "student growth."
Please take a look at the Rogers-Herr Report Card to see how we measure up!
Students receive scale scores as well as Achievement Levels for each EOG, which become part of each student's permanent school record. Achievement Levels indicate how well students have mastered subject-specific skills:
Our teachers work hard to ensure our students' success, but there are a few things you can do to help your child be successful, too!
