Frequently Asked Questions about the CRCTs...
What does CRCT stand for? I'm glad you asked! It stands for "Criterion-Referenced Competency Test" which is fancy language for a test that measures how competent your child is in certain standards (or criteria, hence "criterion-referenced") covered in the classroom.
When are Hesse's CRCTs this year? Hesse's CRCTs are April 30 - May 8. Please go ahead and clear your calendar for those days. Vacations, doctor's appointments, and other appointments should NOT be planned for CRCT testing dates.
What happens if my child doesn't pass the reading CRCT this year? Under the new gateway rule, if your child does not attain an 803 on the CRCT or a 590L (Lexile), he/she cannot be promoted to 5th grade. Click HERE for more information.
What happens if my child is out sick or misses a day of CRCTs? He or she will have to make it up on the "Make Up Day." PLEASE do everything possible to avoid scheduling doctor appointments, vacations, etc. during these testing dates. These tests are extremely important!
