2016-2017 Acuity Interims (Grades 3-8)
These district required interim assessments are 50-60 minute assessments in Reading and Mathematics that will be administrated 3-4 times in the 2016-17 school year to students in grades 3-8, and some 9-10 grades. They are in a format similar to PARCC with both multiple choice and written (constructed) responses. The most significant difference between these interim assessments and PARCC assessments is the level of test security. Teachers are able to use the test results down to the item level to determine where students are and where they need to be relative to district targets. These interim assessments align to both the Colorado Academic Standards and Common Core. These assessments will allow for educators, students and families to monitor students’ progress toward successfully meeting standards.
