Grade 3-5 Principal Coffee Chat
RE: Distance Learning Standardized Testing
Despite the circumstances, there will be standardized testing this year, which will include the IABs, SBAC, and ELPAC. Unique to this year, you will have a rare opportunity to see the test first hand and observe your child taking it.
IAB (Interim Assessment Block):
OUSD 3-5th grade students will be taking the IAB or Interim Assessment Block in Language Arts and Math by November 20. The IAB is a reading, writing and math assessment that students take on the computer. It comes from CAASPP, which stands for California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress.The IABs are formative assessments, meaning that the results are used to make decisions about teaching but are not used for grading or report cards. There is no time limit, but your child’s teacher may have students take the assessment over a two day period.
Your child’s teacher will walk your child through these steps. Teachers will be on Zoom with students for the entire time they take the assessment. There is nothing you have to do, but we wanted you to be aware of the process. Come to the Coffee Chat to learn about the IAB and how to support your child for the home administration.
