Abraar Secondary School will administer the CTBS over three days, October 1-3 for grades 7-8. This test does NOT require prior preparation by the students.
The Canadian Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS) are trusted assessment tools that will enable the teachers to identify student achievement in major curriculum areas including vocabulary, reading, language, mathematics, and science. The results of the CTBS will help the teachers:
Identify at-risk students
Make decisions for grouping students
Plan instructional emphases
Measure growth of learning
Evaluate effectiveness of instruction
Report back to parents on student progress
Please make sure that students do not miss school during these days (Oct.1-3) and come to school on time. Please make sure that they are well rested and have a healthy breakfast before coming to school. Please send a minimum of two, well sharpened, #2 pencils and an eraser with your child during the testing days.
