Yesterday kicked off a week of state assessments at Clinton Junior High School.
Principal Drew Goebel indicates they got the week started with an assembly and for this year, they have worked hard to emphasize the importance of the test to students and parents.
The test taking process takes approximately three weeks and Goebel feels the students are ready for the tests this year.
There are a number of issues with the testing Goebel has. He points to the length it takes to administer and the time it takes to get the results back as just a few of the problems with the PARCC testing.
While testing is common practice across the country, Goebel is hopeful there can be some adjustments made so there is not so much emphasis put on test taking.
