All students in the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth grade participated in LEAP and iLEAP Online Field Testing these last two weeks. The window opened on May 6th and will close on May 22nd. This gave students an opportunity to experience online accountability testing, so they may be prepared for the PARCC Common Core assessments that will replace LEAP and iLEAP in the next couple of years. It also allowed the school to assess its preparedness for online testing.
