SBA Testing Information & Schedule

Spring is the time of year when Lockwood administers the SBA, state required assessments in ELA, math, and science. These assessments are used for state and federal accountability, to monitor student progress toward grade level standards. The English/Language Arts (ELA) and math Smarter Balanced Assessments are administered in grades 3 through 5, while the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS) is administered in grade 5.

Lockwood testing dates are as follows (see full schedule with times and make-up days here):

  • 3rd Grade: May 8, 9, 22, 23

  • 4th Grade: May 11, 12, 25, 26

  • 5th Grade: May 15, 16, 18, 30, June 1

We want each student to perform at their best and encourage students to get good sleep and nutrition during these times. It is also important to minimize absences during your child’s testing schedule.

If you have any questions about your child’s spring assessments or schedules, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher.
