Yearly test dates that need to be incorporated in your pacing:

Week 5:    Practice GEPA
Week 8:    Quarterly Test #1
Week 18:   Quarterly Test #2
Week 24:   Quarterly Test #3
Week 35:   Quarterly Test #4

Testing Suggestions:
* Testing should be done on the Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of testing week with the Math
test being given first.

* Following each quarterly test, allow for a 5 day review of areas that need reinforcement.


On the pacing guide, there are recommended numbers of days for covering a concept. These numbers
are approximate and will overlap with other days.


At approximately weeks 6,12,18, and 24 you should administer a practice picture prompt or
persuasive essay to keep in the students’ portfolios.
