TAG Testing

District Wide TAG (Talented and Gifted) Testing ~ Springfield Public Schools

On Saturday, March 16, 2019, Springfield Public Schools will hold their district wide Spring  TAG Testing at Ridgeview Elementary School.

The TAG test assesses whether or not your child is at the 97%ile or above in the areas of Reading, Math, or Intellectual giftedness. The 97%ile means that if your child was in a line of 100 students, they would know more than the first 97 students in line. These children are at the top of their class, and typically above most students at their entire grade level at school.  If you feel your child may fit into this category, please talk to your child’s teacher and your school’s TAG contact  to refer your child for spring screening.

After you refer them for screening, the teacher will pull  all of the data for the screening and be in contact with you about whether or not your child would qualify to test. If your child qualifies for testing, you will receive a packet from your school with a parent questionnaire and more information about times of testing for your individual child.

If your child is already qualified as TAG, and you feel that your child may need to be accelerated a grade level, you would also speak to your child’s teacher and the TAG contact to refer your child for acceleration. The testing for acceleration will take place Saturday, March 16, 2019, for the above grade level test in Reading, Math, Writing, Science, Reference & Research and/or Social Studies. After testing, we will meet as a team with your school to discuss the next steps and fill out the Iowa Acceleration Scale.
