Classroom Diagnostic Tools Dear Parents/Guardians:
    In an effort to continue to identify student-specific data to guide instructional decisions, Pine-Richland Middle School will use Pennsylvania's Classroom Diagnostic Tools (CDT) for science in grade 8.

    This online adaptive test is currently being used in seventh and eighth-grade mathematics and seventh-grade science. The results are immediate and can be used by teachers to direct instruction and determine flexible grouping in order to provide support for students who need additional help, or enrichment for students who are ready for a greater challenge.   

    The Classroom Diagnostic Tools for math and science are aligned with our curricula and state standards.  We will administer both assessment three times per year. The first administration of the science test is tentatively scheduled for the week of Aug. 28, 2017.The first administration for the math test is tentatively scheduled for the week of Sept. 11, 2017.
