Dear Parents and Guardians,
We have received the individual reports for the students who took the AIMS and Stanford 10 in spring 2014. Each student who took the test has received a report. We will mail all reports home by Friday, June 13. Please remember, if your mail is returned to us this summer, we will require you to go to NUSD registration office to verify and update your address before your child receives his/her teacher assignment next year.
The following is an explanation of the AIMS report for third through fifth grade students.
The following is an explanation of the Stanford 10 report for second grade students. This report shows your child’s results on the Stanford 10 for each tested area: reading comprehension, language, and math problem solving.
Please note, if your child’s score is within the lowest quartile of student performance at AJM, he/she will be placed in Mr. Thompson’s intervention class and will be exempt from elective specials until his/her scores meet grade level standards as determined by the quarterly Galileo Assessment.
If you would like more explanation on these assessment results, please contact the school. Our school report card and data will be public information in August.
Dr. Molly Cassidy
