Nonstop standardized testing from April to June

Students, especially juniors, face constant mandatory standardized testing from late April through early June.

From late April to early June, juniors will be facing a barrage of standardized testing, including the SBAC and i-Ready.

The first wave of testing was the SBAC English exam, administered from April 22-26 for all English classes except AP English. AP English students will make up the SBAC English exam during the May 15-21 window, after the AP exams.

SBAC Math followed shortly thereafter, with non-AP classes testing May 2-3 and May 6-7 in history classes. The SBAC Math and English exams will share the same makeup window for AP students.

The testing window for both SBAC English and Math will close May 24, with Testing Coordinator Michelle Park administering SBAC makeup testing in the Lecture Hall.

Following SBAC testing, all juniors will gather in the Big Gym to take the CAASPP California Science Test on May 22.

The final round of testing, from May 28 to June 5, will include all juniors taking the i-Ready Math and i-Ready English exams.

“We are affecting multiple classes at the same time,”  Park said. “English and history classes will definitely be impacted and math classes as well if they decide to review for the SBAC. It will also affect various classes as students are pulled out to complete makeup testing.”

Students’ concerns about the cramped nature of these standardized tests are justified, as the first tests begin a week later compared to the 2022-2023 school year, causing the tests to occur in rapid succession.
