Nebraska State Writing Assessment

January 22, 2016

Eighth grade students at LMS will be taking the Nebraska State Writing Assessment on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, January 26 – 27.  Attendance during testing is important.  Please help us by avoiding scheduling appointments for your child during this time. Your child will be more successful if they have plenty of rest and a good breakfast.  Please encourage your students to give their best effort on this important test. Thank you for your help!

The Nebraska statewide writing assessment is intended to:

1.  gather information to assist teachers in determining the progress of students in meeting state or local standards for writing;

2. provide each local school district with a report of student progress in meeting state or local  standards for writing; and

3.  lead to improved writing by Nebraska students.

After all tests have been submitted and scored, results from the tests will be shared with teachers, students, and parents so they can all work together to help students reach their potential.
