CTBS Test for Grades 7&8

Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahamatullahi Wabarakatuh,

Dear Grades 7&8 Parents/Guardians,

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.

Jazakumullahu khaira for your cooperation!
