WY-TOPP Information & Schedule 2020-21
March 22, 2021
UME Parents and Guardians,
It’s time to start thinking about WY-TOPP (Wyoming Test of Proficiency and Progress). The window to administer WY-TOPP to all Wyoming students is from April 13th to May 7th. The Wyoming Department of Education requires all 3rd-8th grade students to be tested in the areas of math and reading, with 3rd and 5th graders also tested in writing, and 4th and 8th graders also tested in science. Each subject tested takes approximately 1 ½ hours to 2 ½ hours to complete. The tests are not timed and students can take as long as they need with teacher permitted breaks.
At UME we believe that teachers know their students best. Therefore, they have chosen the dates and times to administer the assessment. WY-TOPP will be administered in students’ normal classrooms using Chromebooks. We have switched the Specials schedule while 4th and 5th graders test on April 27th, 28th and 29th so students don’t feel rushed to get through the test so they can get to Specials by 11:00am. Please look at the schedule on the reverse side of this letter for specific details.
We want to take this opportunity to tell you how proud we are of these students. They have worked incredibly hard this year and this is a chance for them to show what they have learned. It is imperative that your student arrives at school on time on the days he/she tests. Testing begins at 9:10am. Please make sure you do not pull your student out early from a test. Students who are pulled out early are NOT allowed to finish their test at a later date. If you know ahead of time that your student will not be present all day on a testing day please contact your child’s teacher so we can plan accordingly for a makeup session.
At home, you can help prepare your student by having them get plenty of rest the night before and offering him/her a healthy breakfast. I have said it before and I will say it again; students at UME are outstanding! We simply encourage them to do their best. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the school. Go Eagles!
