HCS Smarter Balanced Testing Schedule PDF Print E-mail


We ended the NECAP reading and math tests in the fall of 2013. Now we are finalizing preparations for the next state test from the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.  

At Central School we have plans to implement this test to all 3rd and 4th grade students from April 7-14.  More details will be sent to families of students in grades 3 and 4.

Please maximize all of our children’s testing results by making sure they

arrive at school on time, after a nutritious breakfast and restful nights of sleep

Parent Reports - I Ready Grade 1-4 PDF Print E-mail

Last year, Hampstead Central and Middle Schools implemented the i-Ready® Diagnostic. This tool help teachers effectively assess their students and provide individualized instruction based on each student’s unique needs.  i-Ready is a computer based adaptive assessment in reading and math. The adaptive technology adjusts the difficulty of successive questions according to each student’s performance.   Therefore, your child has been asked to answer questions and solve problems that are above his or her level. 

The program provides a series of comprehensive reports for teachers and parents.  These reports include data about student performance as well as detailed teaching suggestions.  They help educators make informed decisions about the instruction that is right for each child.  Parent reports were mailed this week to all students in grades 1-4 with individualized results based on testing last fall and again this winter.   The reports were mailed (9/19) directly to a parent of each child.

We are planning for a final round of assessments later this spring.  End of year parent reports will be available in June.
