MRMS will soon be starting the Smarter Balanced Assessments for our students.  Unlike multiple-choice assessments, these State test better align with the typical work we do in classrooms (i.e., think critically, analyze information, make a claim, cite and use multiple sources, prove answers, write, complete multi-step problems, communicate, etc.).  At the same time, these tests allow for accommodations and supports for those whose needs require them.  The Smarter Balanced results, like OAKS before it, provide valuable accurate measures of achievement and growth for each student a MES.  For more information about Smarter Balanced Assessments or information about opting out please click here  (Spanish version can be found here

If you have any questions please contact your child’s teacher or Principal Randy Dalton.
