Standardized Testing



This spring, Arkansas public school students in grades third through tenth will be taking the Arkansas Teaching and Learning Assessment System (ATLAS). This new assessment is aligned to Arkansas standards and is one measurement school districts use to track students’ growth and work to best meet the needs of every student. Students will receive Individual Student Reports in the Fall of 2024. The ATLAS assessments are untimed; however, students must finish the same day they begin the test. 


The ATLAS writing assessment will be given to Ivory Intermediate and CFMS students on Wednesday, March 6, and to FES and CFHS students on Tuesday, March 12. The ATLAS English Language Arts, Math, and Science Assessments will take place in April and May. 


Although standardized testing shows only a small part of what our students can do, Camden Fairview teachers and administrators will use the data from testing to work to improve students’ learning outcomes next school year.


We want every student motivated, engaged, and encouraged to do their best during testing! You can support your child by making sure on test days they know to:


1. Be here.

2. Be on time.

3. Stay focused.

4. Work hard the entire time.



Please also make sure your student:


  • gets plenty of sleep the night before the test;

  • has breakfast on the morning of the test;

  • is at school by 7:55AM on test days;

  • does not have any out-of-school appointments on test days;

  • knows you think they will do well on the tests; and

  • knows you understand the test is important.

Thank you for supporting your student and Camden Fairview!
