NC Check-Ins Testing for Grades 4-8
NC Check Ins will be administered to students in grades 4-8 on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 16 and 17. Elementary school students will begin testing at 8:00 am. Middle school students will begin testing at 9:30 am. NC Check-Ins are interim assessments developed by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) that are aligned to North Carolina Grade-level content standards in English Language Arts (ELA)/reading for grades 4-8 and in Mathematics for grades 3-8. The main purpose of NC Check-Ins is to provide students, teachers, parents, and stakeholders with immediate in-depth action-data and a reliable estimate of students' current performance on the selected subset of content standards. Both the end-of-grade assessments (LEOG) and the NC Check-Ins share a common item bank, which then exposes NC Check-In students to similar item types and rigor found on the EOGs.
