FORWARD EXAM - STATE ASSESSMENT
Spring is a very busy time for students and staff in our schools. This year, all students in grades 6-8 at South Milwaukee Middle School will participate in the statewide assessment known as the Forward Exam. This standardized assessment is similar to the standardized assessments our students have taken in the past and is in a digital format.
The Forward Exam measures students’ knowledge, skills, and abilities in reading, and math in grades 6-8, as well as science and social studies in grade 8. As part of federal guidelines, students are required to take state assessments.
The Forward Exam will be administered between April 3-7 for all students at SMMS. This summative assessment is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and the College and Career Readiness Standards.
