Testing Schedule

Assessment and ongoing evaluation are a critical component of many things in our life, including the instructional cycle. Without assessment, how would you know where you are going, what students need to reach the target, and how well students learned the content to a standard that is common across the district? This guide is to help you understand the various required assessments, their purpose and their frequency. For detailed information on test windows, please see the Assessment Plan below.

• NMAPA (Special Ed Only)
• 2/27-3/24 SBA Science (Grades 4, 7, 11)

See the testing date below

• PARCC Online
Between 4/18 and 5-2-17 Makeups will be done on Mondays and Fridays

• End-of-Course/Advancement Placement
2 consecutive weeks in last 3 weeks of semester (Between 5/2 and 5/18)

Between 5/1 and 5/15: English and Math teachers will administer in their classes

Your child will take the SBA in Science once a year; this takes about 3 hour’s total. The test will be administered on Thursday, March 16. THIS IS ONLY FOR 4, 7, and 11 GRADES. The test will begin at 7:40am for7th and 11th grades, and 8:30 for Elementary 4th grade. The SBA is required by the state and the federal government, and is used for tracking student progress and for teacher evaluation.

Should you have any questions, please contact Testing Coordinator, Mrs. Del Curto at kdelcurto@abqse.org

Support Our Fundraiser

We graciously ask for your support of our capital funds request. Receiving these funds would provide our school with the ability to enhance our education offerings to students. We want to move the recess area and playground to the back area where our students will be more safe.

Playground Equipment/Outdoor Sports Court – Our current playground equipment is insufficient and inadequate for our growing body of students. We would like to purchase more equipment, provide amulti-sports court and a soccer field, and install a shade-structure to give our students some reprieve from New Mexico’s 310 days of yearly sunshine.

Because you’re donating to the ASE, your contribution is tax deductible (tax ID 27-1096803).
For more information, please contact principal via email say@abqse.org.

ALEKS MATH Program is Available for Gr.3-12

Dear Parent

It is our pleasure to announce that all students have access to ALEKS Math program. They got their username and password by their teachers. Students have access to ALEKS at school and at home. Make sure your child practice math by using ALEKS program at home.

Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.

ALEKS also provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction, 24/7, from virtually any Web-based computer for a fraction of the cost of a human tutor.
