OAA Reading Test for Third Graders
Our third graders will be taking their first Ohio Achievement Assessment on Tuesday, 10/5/10. It will assess what they have learned to do as readers and writers throughout their learning lives. The assessment measures how students read, comprehend, and share their comprehension with others. The OAA reading test will also assess students spelling and vocabulary knowledge. Please read the IMA e-mail update that was sent on Friday 10/1/10. If you did not receive this e-mail, please let us know and the information will be forwarded to you.
This information sheet from our school district is very helpful too. You will find it on our website's homepage in the bottom right-hand corner. OAA Information Sheet
Please keep this in mind: Each child is at a different place on his or her learning journey. Tuesday is one assessment of many that your child will experience in a lifetime. Encourage your child to share his or her talents and to approach this opportunity as a do-able challenge during the test. A positive attitude makes all the difference when facing assessments.
