At school we are studying and practicing for an assessment called Foundation Skills Assessment but for short it is called FSA. This Assessment has a numeral section, a long story to write, a short story, and reading comprehension. At school we are just practicing online and on printed paper. Here is how I look before the practice test:
We will be practicing until the end of February and then the real stuff starts! FSA’s only happen in British Columbia if your in any grade younger than I but it will happen again in Grade 7. My teacher ( Ms. Rees ) is one of the markers of all the tests! So is the other grade 4 teacher at my school. They mark over 100 students work!
I think FSAs are a great learning experience for students in grade four and seven because it is preparing us for future learning.
