November 29th to December 17th Testing Schedule 

Students will be taking their 2nd MAP Growth Assessment through their Science, ELA, and Math classes starting on November 29th.  Students enrolled in Civics, Biology Honors, and ELA will take their Quarterly or End of Unit assessment in December.  All semester courses will have a District Final that counts as 10% of the semester grade.


Mr. Salerno sent this Connect Message home via email regarding District finals:

Dear CSRMS Parent/Guardian,

The purpose of this letter is to inform you that, if your child is in one or more semester electives, he/she will be taking at least one District Final for the course(s) during the week of December 13th-17th.  For this school year, District Finals will account for 10% of the student’s current semester grade in the course.

Monday, December 13th – Art 2D, Exp Health Sci, Intro Art A/V

Tuesday, December 14th – PE, Research, Exp Tech & Car Pl

Wednesday, December 15th – Ex Robot Tech & CP, Basic Theatre, Cptr App Bus 1

District Finals may be computer-based tests (CBT) or paper-based tests (PBT).  If your child is taking a CBT he or she will have an opportunity to view an introduction to the assessment platform to become familiar with the software, item types, and online tools he or she will encounter and use during testing.

Please review the following policies with your student before testing:

Electronic Devices—If your child is found with ANY electronic devices, including but not limited to cell phones and smartphones, at any time during testing OR during breaks (e.g., restroom, lunch), his or her test will be invalidated, which means it will not be scored. The best practice is for students to leave devices at home or in their lockers on the day of testing.

Testing Rules Acknowledgment— Prior to testing, test administrators will read the rules to students, and students will show acknowledgement that they understand the testing rules by                   proceeding with the assessment.

Discussing Test Content after Testing—The last portion of the testing rules read to students before they affirm the acknowledgment states, “After the test, you may not discuss the test items. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting online, for example, on websites like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.” If students are found sharing information about test items, even without the intent to cheat, their tests will be invalidated.

Test Invalidations—Students are responsible for doing their own work on the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others. If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated.

Leaving Campus—If your child leaves campus before completing the test once they have started the test (for lunch, an appointment, illness, etc.), he or she WILL NOT be allowed to complete the test. If your child does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day. Please remember not to schedule appointments on testing days.

If you have any questions related to this test administration, you may contact Kate McCracken at Thank you for supporting your student as he/she prepares for testing.
