Testing

Several state tests are given during the course of the school year at CMS, including LEAP, iLEAP, Explore, and the Algebra I End of Course test.  6th and 7th grade students take iLEAP, and 8th grade students take LEAP.  Passing the 8th grade LEAP test is a requirement for promotion to high school.

Louisiana's high-stakes testing policy requires that 8th grade students score a Basic or above on either the English Language Arts section or the Math section, and an Approaching Basic or above on the other section to pass the LEAP and be promoted to the 9th grade.  If the student does not score this Approaching Basic/Basic combination or higher in the areas of English and Math, then remediation is offered in summer school and the student can take the LEAP again at the end of the summer.
