Classroom Based Assessment - Grade 5

5th Grade Classroom Based Assessment
What is it?... In other content areas such as reading, writing, math and science students take the MSP to measure their academic progress. For other content areas such as social studies, the arts, and health and fitness the state requires as of 2008-09 for fifth graders to take a classroom based assessment or CBA to measure academic progress. 
When is it done?... The fitness CBA will take place for each individual 5th grade class towards the end of the trimester in which that class has P.E. The health CBA will most likely take place around the middle of the trimester.  
How do the students prepare for the CBA?... The needed information will be covered during P.E. class.
