Blue Ribbon Question of the Day

All our elementary and middle school students and their parents know about Blue Ribbon - an online program used by the district for two purposes:

  1. to help teachers and principals understand which skills and understandings each student has attained in Language Arts and Mathematics (and thus provide more targeted and appropriate instruction for each student), and
  2. to allow students to practice "CMT-like questions" so that they will be better prepared for the CMTs each year.

Every day, a new Math "Question of the Day" is posted for students in grades 3-8 and a reading "Question of the Day" is posted for students in grades 3-7. The Reading questions are based on the new national Common Core Standards, which will be reflected in future generations of the CMT.
