Registration for the Algebra1/Honors ELASS Pathway
Cooley Middle School would like to invite all 6th grade students who may be interested in advanced/accelerated classes to test for our Algebra 1 and ELASS classes. Please know that students cannot be placed in these classes without testing. In addition to Algebra 1 and ELASS, we offer Honors courses for students that either don’t qualify for Algebra 1 or ELASS, or want to be challenged, but may not feel ready for the rigors of Algebra 1 or ELASS.
The Algebra 1/Honors ELASS (English and Social Studies) pathways are for students who are prepared for even more advanced courses to start 7th grade. As these courses are the most challenging and rigorous, it is important to make sure that students demonstrate the prior knowledge and ability to succeed with this curriculum. A placement test will be used to determine if students are prepared for Algebra 1/Honors ELASS courses. All interested students are invited to register to take the placement exams at Cooley Middle School on Saturday, February 17th starting at 9am. There will be a makeup date on March 2nd for students that cannot attend the February 17th date. Please click on the link below to register your student to take the placement exams:
Dual Language Classes
Teachers will be administering the STAMP Test in their classes over the next few weeks. The STAMP Test is the “Standards-based Measurement of Proficiency”. It is a test that assesses students’ language proficiency in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Proficiency is an outward expression of spontaneous, unrehearsed communication and is measured on a spectrum of novice, intermediate, advanced, and distinguished. For more information on proficiency, please visit our website: https://sites.google.com/view/languageproficiency/home. The STAMP Test gives us a measure of a student’s language ability according to benchmark levels based on our state and national language standards. Our language teachers will use this information to inform instruction, align curriculum, and craft future goals.
During the STAMP assessment, students may not use or have access to paper, writing utensils, or cell phones. Also, no other application may be open on their computers. Students must use school appropriate language in their responses on the writing and speaking portions of the test. Students will need to come prepared to class with their charged computer. They may also bring a headset with a microphone.
