Last week, letters were sent home with the 10th grade students who will be participating in the Writing Field test on November 19, 2019.  The purpose of the ELA Writing Field Test is to assess newly-developed writing prompts, which may be used on future operational assessments. Student scores will not be reported for this field test; however, participation in the field test is an opportunity for your student to become familiar with the format of the writing component of the operational FSA ELA assessment that he or she will take in Spring 2020.
