FAST Assessment

This school year, all ​6-8th grade students​  will​ ​take​ ​the​ ​FAST​ ​assessment.​  ​FAST​ ​stands​ ​for​ ​Formative​ ​Assessment System​ ​for​ ​Teachers and​ ​is​ ​an​ ​assessment​ ​suite​ ​developed​ ​by​ ​the​ ​University​ ​of​ ​Minnesota.  FAST​ ​has​ ​been​ ​adopted​ ​by​ ​schools​ ​in​ ​37​ ​states​ ​and​ ​has​ ​over​ ​14​ ​million​ ​users.​ ​


All  students will take both the ​FAST​ a​Reading​ and aMath ​assessment in the fall, winter, and spring.


Both assessments are computerized​ ​and will take​ ​approximately​ ​20-30 minutes.  As well, each assessment uniquely​ ​adapts​ ​to​ ​your​ ​child’s​ ​level​ ​of​ ​learning​ ​based​ ​on​ ​your​ ​child’s performance.


FAST​ ​assessments​ ​help​ ​us​ ​to​ ​determine​ ​your​ ​child’s​ ​instructional​ ​level​ ​and​ will ​allow​ ​us​ ​to​ ​measure his​ ​or​ ​her​ ​reading and math ​growth.​


More​ ​information​ ​about​ ​FAST​ ​and​ ​the​ ​vendor,​ ​FastBridge,​ ​can​ ​be​ ​found​ ​at​ ​​www.fastbridge.org​.


 If​ ​you​ ​have​ ​specific​ ​questions,​ ​please​ ​feel​ ​free​ ​to​ ​direct​ ​them​ ​to​ ​your​ ​child’s​ ELA or Math teacher.
