Hooksett Memorial School students will be taking the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress testing during the month of September. Each student will have two testing sessions in one of the computer labs, with each testing session scheduled to last for approximately 90 minutes. The data from this testing provides valuable and highly useful sources of information about individual student performance in the areas of reading and mathematics. These tests help determine a student’s instructional level and measure academic growth from year to year. These computer-based tests provide almost immediate data for staff to use to help guide a more personalized instructional program for each child. HMS will be testing students during the first two to three weeks of school.
