Cumulative Benchmark Tests in literacy and math are given three times a year in grades 1-5. These tests are mandated by the San Diego Unified School District and are used to assist teachers in determining student proficiency toward the California Common Core Standards.
Testing & Performance
District Mandated Testing
Includes the Stanford Diagnostic Reading Test (SDRT) and the Analytic Reading Inventory (ARI) for grades 4 & 5 and the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) for grades K-3. Fifth graders are also given a mathematics exit exam used for placement at the middle school level.
Special Education Testing
Parents may request that a district psychologist and resource specialist evaluate their children for learning disabilities. Requests are to be made to the principal. An Instructional Study Team (IST) will meet with the parent or guardian to determine the appropriateness of the request.
