8th Grade Science Pre-Assessment
Wednesday, May 16, 2018 8:00 AM

All 8th grade students at Justice Page Middle School will be taking a Physical Science Pre-assessment on Wednesday, May 30. The online pre-assessment will address MN High School Science standards on which students have not yet been instructed, and no preparation is necessary at home or in class. Scores will not impact students’ science grade in 8th or 9th grade in any way.

The assessment results will be collected and analyzed at the district to support differentiation of next year’s course and identify students who are already proficient in Physical Science. Physical Science is a rigorous high school course based on high school state standards required for graduation. If a student demonstrates proficiency in Physical Science on the pre-assessment, Teaching and Learning will contact families in late June 2018 about science course enrollment options and next steps for the 2018-2019 school year.

If you have questions about this pre-assessment, please contact your student's science teacher.
