Penn’s Grove Testing
In the past, Penn’s Grove school utilized Study Island benchmark testing to give students, parents, and educators a snapshot of student proficiencies in relation to the state teaching standards.  This year the school will not be using Study Island, but instead, will be using Classroom Diagnostic Tools (CDTs) as a diagnostic test.  CDTs assess student’s performance based on the Pennsylvania Core Standards as tested on PSSA and Keystone Exams.  The CDTs will be given in Reading/Literature, Writing/Composition, Mathematics, and Science.  The tests will provide students, teachers, and parents information on students’ strengths and/or weaknesses within specific grade level categories.  For more information regarding CDTs, please see the attached document from the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
