East Columbus Magnet Academy will host an information night on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 26.
The event will provide test-taking strategies, tips and helpful Web sites to parents to assist them in helping their children master the CRCT. Scores on the state standardized test help determine if a school make adequate yearly progress according to the guidelines under the federal No Child Left Behind Act; in some grades, the scores are also key in determining if a student is promoted.
CRCT testing will be April 14-24.
During Thursday’s information night, parents and students will rotate through stations in each of the subject areas — reading, language arts, math, social studies and science. Teachers will present sample test items and Web sites that students can use for practice at home.
Never miss a local story.
Dinner will be provided for parents and students.
