    OLPA Testing
    On the OLPA test the benchmark scores are...

    409: Not meeting standard

    440: Partially meeting standard

    450: Meeting standard

    Ask your 4th graders about their scores on the computerized test, OLPA to see if they are on track

    Here are the skills 4th graders need for the chapters in their Everyday math book.  Ask them what chapter they are working on!
