The Abbreviated Assessment (AA) is a “kid-friendly” testing option for young children and children with special testing needs that meets the state testing requirement.
The children are tested in a small group of 2-6 children during a 30 – 45 minute appointment. For many of the children this will be their first “test.” The children are tested individually for Reading, while Spelling and Math are tested in small, closely monitored groups. The entire testing experience has been carefully designed so each child will be successful and not work at a level that is frustrating. Because there is such a small group, it is easy to watch the children work and determine when they should stop working on spelling words and math problems. This assessment is not timed like standardized tests.
Our experience with these small groups is that the children have a good time and are introduced to “tests” in a positive atmosphere.
