Upcoming testing for 2nd graders
Upcoming testing for 2nd graders
Posted on 01/06/2017
The Puyallup School District continues to look for ways to create access and equity for all students.  With that, the Board of Directors has approved the assessment and screening of all 2nd grade students for consideration into the Highly Capable program.  All 2nd grade students will take the digital Cognitive assessment (CogAT 7) in early February.  The students will take a prescreen, 40-minute test on a classroom laptop.  Our top 12% of students will receive an invitation in the US mail to continue on and take the post screener section of the assessment later in the month.  Permission slips will be needed for students to take the post screen examination.  Please watch your mail in mid-February.  Students who did not test in the top 12% will receive their test results with their next report card.

If you would like to refuse or opt-out of testing please contact your school office staff for the form.
