Richardson Middle School was recently chosen by the State of California to give a pilot test for the new national education standards, called the Common Core State Standards. The pilot tests are a practice and tryout of items and tasks for the real test in two years. This year students at RMS will tryout the English-Language Arts test questions for 6th and 7thgrade. What’s interesting and new about the pilot Common Core test is that it will be done entirely on computers!
This test will be given in two and three hour sessions. Students will be told if they have been selected soon. Thank you to those in advance for being part of something very special and for making history at RMS!
Below students in Mrs. Leslie Bezich’s ELA classes are using the computers to research colleges they wish to attend and poetry genres.
