Students test best when they are with THEIR teacher in THEIR classroom. Being absent on scheduled test days means the students have to complete make-up testing in a different room with a different teacher. Please try to have your student at school and on time each day.
Students must score within or above the grade level Lexile stretch band to pass the GMAS. The Grade 3 stretch band is 520-820. The Grade 4 stretch band is 740-940. The Grade 5 stretch band is 830-110. A student receives a Lexile reader measure as a score from a reading test; the Lexile measure describes the student’s reading ability. Books and other texts also have a Lexile measure associated with them, and this Lexile text measure describes the book's reading demand or difficulty. When used together, these measures can help match a reader with reading material that is at an appropriate level of difficulty, or suggest how well a reader will comprehend a text.
