Second Grade Testing

Second Grade Testing Information

Families of second grade students throughout the district will receive information in November 2021 that describes the testing, qualifying, and entrance process for the Tahoma School District Highly Capable Program options for grades 3-5. In early December 2021 all second grade students are provided the opportunity to take the CogAT 8 Screener assessment which will be administered online during the school day. Following this screener assessment, students who qualify will have the opportunity to take the next battery of tests in January 2022. The assessments used are the CogAT and Iowa Test of Basic Skills. All second grade families will receive notification from the district sharing whether or not their child will continue with the assessment process.

The November 2021 communication will contain information if parents would like to opt out of participation in the screening process. If you wish your student to participate, you do not need to do anything.

Opting In Private school and home-based students who reside in TSD boundaries are invited to participate. To enroll your student in testing, please contact Karen Jenkins at kjenkins@tahomasd.us.
