Salina Central is testing all juniors regardless of what science class they are 
enrolled in. We are giving all juniors one practice assessment for life science 
and one practice assessment for physical science. Once we have baseline scores, 
we plan to take another look at our curriculum and sequence to better match up 
objectives and student preparedness.

How many people are testing students other than the mandated juniors this year? 
 Are you testing kids in chemistry on the physical science test if they're 
sophomores or are you waiting until they take physics (if they take physics)?  
The kids that take chemistry as juniors have no choice--they will be tested 
before they take physics no matter what.  I think it would be easier to just 
test all kids in chemistry on the physical science test and review with all of 
them at one time rather than just the juniors in chemistry and then just the 
juniors in physics.  Especially since we have kids that don't take physics 
their junior year after chem as sophomores, but might take zoology, anatomy, 
etc., and come back to physics as seniors.
