Kindergarten Math Acceleration Assessments **click here for more information**

Date & Time: 
Thursday, August 12, 2021 - 7:30am to 3:00pm
  • This assessment is a one-on-one, in-person assessment created and utilized only at Hulstrom to determine which students can be immediately accelerated in math.  This assessment has a focus beyond skills and digs into the conceptual knowledge students hold around mathematics.  

  • If students show a readiness for acceleration, they will finish 7th grade math at the end of 5th grade.  This type of acceleration model is only found at Hulstrom.  

  • If students do not show a readiness on this assessment for acceleration, never fear!  We have a dynamic acceleration process:

    • Students, parents, or teachers can recommend for possible acceleration at any grade level.

    • All students are universally screened for acceleration at 2nd and 5th grade (this means all students are reviewed for possible acceleration).  

  • Based on the results of this, classroom lists will be developed.  You should know your classroom teacher by the morning of August 16th.

  • A Hulstrom staff member will contact you on August 2nd to schedule your child’s assessment time.  

  • *Due to the time constraints of the school year beginning, assessments will only be held on August 12th.
