Universal Screener Assessment

The Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) School Board adopted a universal screener assessment, i-Ready, for use with all elementary school students in kindergarten through grade 6. The universal screener assessment includes a reading test and a mathematics test. Students in kindergarten will receive screening for reading only. Students in grades 1-6 will receive screening for both mathematics and reading.

The purpose of this assessment is to identify students who may have gaps in foundational literacy and mathematics skills. Based on universal screener results, some students may require an additional assessment to further diagnose the specific learning areas that may need support. The universal screener reading test, together with any necessary follow-up diagnostic assessments, also fulfills state testing expectations for primary students.

The universal screener and any necessary follow-up assessments will be given one more time this year. Depending on grade level and previous screener performance, some students may not receive screening again.

Crossfield students will test as follows:  

  • Kindergarten: May 11-21
  • First Grade: April 27-May 7
  • Second Grade: April 20-30
  • Third Grade: identified students, April 27-May 7
  • Fourth Grade: identified students, June 1-11
  • Fifth Grade: April 13-23
  • Sixth Grade: identified students, June 1-11

Additional information, including a short video, about the universal screener in FCPS can be found here..  Another resource is this video, to help families be as supportive as possible as their students(s) take the i-Ready Diagnostic at home. If you have further questions about this assessment, please contact our Crossfield test coordinator, Lea Fadden at ltfadden@fcps.edu.

SOL (Standards of Learning) Testing Updates-Elementary Grades 3-6

Across Virginia, students will be taking Standards of Learning (SOL) tests this spring. At Crossfield ES testing for grades 3-6 will be scheduled between May 10 and May 27, 2021.

We ask that all 3rd through 6th grade families complete this online Google intent form. Contact Lea Fadden (ltfadden@fcps.edu) at our school if you need help accessing or completing the form.

Below is a tentative SOL testing schedule for Crossfield:

  • All SOL tests must be taken in-person at school. SOL tests are not available for remote delivery from home.
  • If you do not wish for your student to take SOL tests at school this spring, you have the right to refuse testing.
  • If you choose to refuse the grade 3-8 SOL reading or mathematics test for your virtual student, you will have the opportunity for them to complete an alternative, non-SOL test at home. The Virginia Remote Student Progress Monitoring Test will provide information about strengths and areas for growth in grade level content standards. 
Universal Screener Assessment

The Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) School Board adopted a universal screener assessment, i-Ready, for use with all elementary school students in kindergarten through grade 6. The universal screener assessment includes a reading test and a mathematics test. Students in kindergarten will receive screening for reading only. Students in grades 1-6 will receive screening for both mathematics and reading.

The purpose of this assessment is to identify students who may have gaps in foundational literacy and mathematics skills. Based on universal screener results, some students may require an additional assessment to further diagnose the specific learning areas that may need support. The universal screener reading test, together with any necessary follow-up diagnostic assessments, also fulfills state testing expectations for primary students.

The universal screener and any necessary follow-up assessments will be given one more time this year. Depending on grade level and previous screener performance, some students may not receive screening again.

Crossfield students will test as follows:  

  • Kindergarten: May 11-21
  • First Grade: April 27-May 7
  • Second Grade: April 20-30
  • Third Grade: identified students, April 27-May 7
  • Fourth Grade: identified students, June 1-11
  • Fifth Grade: April 13-23
  • Sixth Grade: identified students, June 1-11

Additional information, including a short video, about the universal screener in FCPS can be found here..  Another resource is this video, to help families be as supportive as possible as their students(s) take the i-Ready Diagnostic at home. If you have further questions about this assessment, please contact our Crossfield test coordinator, Lea Fadden at ltfadden@fcps.edu.

SOL (Standards of Learning) Testing Updates-Elementary Grades 3-6

Across Virginia, students will be taking Standards of Learning (SOL) tests this spring. Federal and state education departments have decided not to cancel this year’s assessments. In Fairfax County Public Schools, testing for grades 3-8 will be scheduled between April 26 and June 4, 2021. 

  • All SOL tests must be taken in-person at school. SOL tests are not available for remote delivery from home. Students who attend school virtually, will be scheduled for in-person testing appointments to complete their SOL assessments. Bus transportation will be provided for these appointments, as needed. More information on this will be coming soon. 
  • If you do not wish for your student to take SOL tests at school this spring, you have the right to refuse testing. The Right to Refuse Assessments webpage (https://www.fcps.edu/node/34277) offers information and considerations as you make this decision. 
  • If you choose to refuse the grade 3-8 SOL reading or mathematics test for your virtual student, you will have the opportunity for them to complete an alternative, non-SOL test at home. The Virginia Remote Student Progress Monitoring Test will provide information about strengths and areas for growth in grade level content standards. 

As we prepare for spring assessments, we need to collect information about your intentions for spring SOL tests. By  Monday, April 12, all 3rd through 6th grade families should complete this online Google intent form. Contact Lea Fadden (ltfadden@fcps.edu) at our school if you need help accessing or completing the form. 

Federal law requires schools to give SOL tests in reading, mathematics, and science. Additionally, state policy requires schools to use local alternative assessments in grade levels and content areas where SOL tests have been removed. 

  • SOL tests measure what students have learned of the content and skills detailed in the Virginia Standards of Learning. Tests provide information about student achievement to the parent, school, school division, and state. SOL scores are available for families by the start of the next school year. 
  • Local alternative assessments are the combination of formal and informal assessments delivered as part of regular classroom instruction throughout the school year. Like SOL tests, the local alternative assessments measure student learning of the content standards. Performance on local alternative assessments is incorporated into quarterly progress reports for families.  

The table below shows which content areas are assessed at each grade level within elementary schools. If you have questions about state assessments for your student, please contact their teacher.

Spring AAP Newsletter

ADVANCED ACADEMIC PROGRAMS (AAP)

SCREENING FOR SCHOOL-BASED (LEVEL II-III) SERVICES

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) offers a continuum of advanced academic services for all students in grades K-8. Learning experiences are designed to develop higher-level thinking through enrichment, acceleration, and extensions of the Program of Studies (POS). Teachers, administrators, and advanced academic resource teachers (AARTs) work together to provide the following levels of school-based services in each elementary school:

  • Critical and Creative Thinking Lessons, Grades K-6 (Level I)           All students in kindergarten through grade six receive level I services which consist of model lessons that are designed to teach critical and creative thinking skills.  The lessons are modeled in all classrooms by AARTs and the thinking strategies are then used throughout the year by classroom teachers and other teachers who work with students. Student responses to these model lessons are used as part of the identification process for AAP services. Parents may also practice the thinking strategies during family conversations and activities. A description of the nine critical and creative thinking strategies can be found at Level I K-6.
  • Differentiated Lessons in Areas of Academic Strength, Grades K-6 (Level II)                                                                                                 The AART collaborates with classroom teachers to provide additional challenge through lessons and resources that extend and enrich the POS. Level II services are part of a talent development pool. Students are rescreened annually to make decisions about the need for this level of service.
  • Part-Time Advanced Academic Programs, Grades 3-6 (Level III)Students identified by a local school screening committee for part-time advanced academic services are challenged through models and strategies designed to extend and enrich the POS in the four core subject areas. Students receive direct instruction from the AART at the local school using curriculum from the AAP Curriculum and Resources to Support the Differentiated Framework.  Students identified for Level III services continue to receive level III services through grade 6.

Screening for school-based services can happen at any time during the school year but is done schoolwide in spring to determine services for the next school year. Parents or guardians may initiate the screening for school-based (level II and III) services by submitting the AAP School-Based Services (Level II-III) Referral Form (available here at the bottom of the page in Forms) to the AART at Crossfield Elementary School prior to spring screening by Monday, May 19, 2021. Multiple criteria are used to screen students for all levels of AAP services. Parents or guardians who submit a referral will be notified by Crossfield Elementary School of their student’s eligibility status by August 20,2021.

If a parent or guardian wishes to appeal an ineligible decision, an appeal may be submitted with new data for consideration by the local school screening committee. This new information should be submitted to Melissa Graham, Advanced Academic Resource Teacher.

If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Graham, AART (mdgraham@fcps.edu).
