SBAC Practice Testing
This year, Rheem 3rd – 5th graders, will participate in Common Core aligned SBAC testing during the designated two-week periods listed below:
The SBAC tests are untimed, but based on the estimated testing times, students will be working on the test for 45 – 60 minutes a day during their assigned weeks. Specific testing times each day will be determined by each classroom teacher. Please avoid scheduling appointments during the weeks that are designated for your child’s grade level.
