Students in Grade 8 to take PSSA / Keystone Tests
Students in Grade 8 will take PSSA tests in April & May and Keystone Algebra Exams in May. The 8th Grade Team will post more information to the
AMS 8 Blog
in early 2017.
Below are the testing windows published by the PA Dept of Education. During these time periods, students will be completing each of the required 8th grade PSSA subject tests.
ABSENCES FROM SCHOOL ON TEST DAYS
Avoid scheduling doctor appointments, vacations or other out-of-school activities during testing times.
Participation in PSSA/Keystone exams is a state requirement.
Making up tests pulls students from their regular classes. As a result, they will miss valuable class time. It will be students' responsibility to make up any classwork you miss.
Of course, if students are genuinely ill, please stay at home and take the necessary time off to get well. Students will perform better on a test if they are healthy.
