New Student Test Information Can Help Parents, Baesler Says

 State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler

State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says the results of new state math and English tests offer parents helpful information about how well their children have done in school.

Parents can ask their children’s school principals for the Individual Student Reports. The report information comes from the North Dakota State Assessment in math and English. The tests were given to 10th graders and students in grades three through eight.

The last tests were given in early May. Baesler says they were graded quickly, and they give parents up-to-date information about the school progress of their children.

Baesler says teachers may find the information useful in doing their lesson planning for the next school year.
