These large group assessments are not calculated into a child's grades. It really is more of a measuring tool for the school administration.

Thank you .That makes sense.I thought I was through with school with my youngest being 30 and oldest being 40. But my oldest granddaughter is in the third grade and she is struggling in Math and I just wondered with her high C in math will this test hurt her in math.

That is a question for the teacher or principal. Our schools use a system called Iowa Basics and PLAN; kids don't get held back based on these scores but rather the school is able to compile the results and adapt their curriculum to meet areas of weakness. Here is a link to the testing info:
