The New Mexico Public Education Department is requesting parent input regarding the usefulness of the score reports that will be provided for New Mexico’s new Science Assessment. These reports are called Score Interpretation and Use (SIU) Statements. These SIUs are intended to inform parents how their students performed on the assessment. Students in grades 5, 8 and 11 will take the New Mexico Assessment of Science Readiness (NM-ASR). If you are interested in providing input please see the link/document below about upcoming webinars.
