NAEP Testing for Seniors
When
2/28/2019

75 of our seniors have been chosen randomly to participate in the NAEP Testing .

 

We are pleased to notify you that St Genevieve High School has been selected to represent private schools across the nation by participating in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on Thursday, February 28, 2019.  NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students in public and private schools know and can do in various subjects. It is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. NAEP is different from state and school assessments because it provides a common measure of student achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.

 Your child will take an assessment in one of the following subjects:  mathematics, reading, or science. In addition to subject area questions, NAEP survey questionnaires are voluntarily completed by students. The questionnaires provide valuable information about participating students’ educational experiences and opportunities to learn both in and out of the classroom. More information is available at https://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/parents under the section “What Questions Are on the Test?”

 The assessment takes about 120 minutes for most students.

 The information collected is used for statistical purposes only.

·         Your child’s grades will not be affected.

·         Students may be excused for any reason, are not required to complete the assessment, and may skip any question.

·         While the assessment is voluntary, NAEP depends on student participation to help policymakers improve education. However, if you do not want your child to participate, please notify me in writing by February 8, 2019.

 There is no need to study in preparation for NAEP, but please encourage your child to do his or her best. A brochure that explains what participation in NAEP means for you and your child is available at http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/pdf/parents/2012469.pdf. Contact Lindsay Sorensen at (818) 894-6417 or at sorensen@sgps.org if you have any questions.

 We are excited that our school is participating in NAEP. We know that St Genevieve High School's students will show what our nation’s students in private schools know and can do.
