End of Grade Testing

Near the end of the school year, your child will take the state-required multiple-choice North Carolina End-of-Grade Tests of Reading Comprehension, Mathematics, and Science (5th grade only). The end-of-grade tests are administered to all students here at Atkinson in grades 3–5 as part of the statewide assessment program. These multiple choice curriculum-based achievement tests are specifically aligned to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study and include a variety of strategies to measure the achievement of all North Carolina students.

The following website has sample test items to help you and your child prepare for this assessment:

It is important that you have your child at school on time each day of the test. Children perform their best on this type of assessment when they are well-rested and eat a nutritious breakfast.

Feel free to contact your child’s teacher or the school if you have any questions.
