Â Lincoln Elementary Assessments
The purposes of testing in the Elementary are varied. Before a child enters
Kindergarten they are screened with the Dial 3 instrument. This gives us
information as to what skills the child has already acquied in the areas of
Language, Concepts and Motor Skills. This helps us assess the developmental
level of your child.
Grades K-2 are given the Standford Achievement Test in the spring. This
comprehensive, nationally normed test, not only gives an indication of the
level your child is working, but help teachers in planning curriculum and
grouping for instruction. Test results are typically sent home two to three
weeks after testing is completed.
Grade 3 is given a School Ability test called the Otis-Lennon. It is used as a
screening device for gifted and Special Services.
Grades 3-6, in accordance with the mandated No Child Left Behind, is involved
in the Missouri Assessment Plan (MAP). Depending on the grade level, students
may test in one, two or three subject areas. This testing is done in April.
Results are given to parents and explained at the Fall Parent/Teacher
Sometimes additional testing is needed. If that is the case, parents are
notified and parental permission is requested.
