NC Check-Ins

River Mill Academy will administer NC Check-Ins from March 3-5, 2020. 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 (for reading and mathematics) and North Carolina Essential Standards (for science). The following NC Check-Ins are available:

  • Grades 4–8 Reading (measures all assessable grade-level content standards and increases in text complexity)
  • Grades 3–8 Mathematics (measures selected subsets of grade-level content standards)
  • Grades 5 and 8 Science (measures Physical Science, Earth Science, and Life Science)
  • NC Math 1 (measures selected subsets of grade-level content standards)

The main purpose of NC Check-Ins is to provide students, teachers, and parents with immediate in-depth action data and a reliable estimate of students’ current performance on selected subsets of content standards. Both the end-of-grade (EOG) tests and the end-of course (EOC) tests share a common item bank with the NC Check-Ins, which then exposes NC Check-In students to similar item types and rigor found on the EOGs and EOCs.
