GATE Universal Screening

Thank you for your patience as you have waited to support your school site in preparing for the administration of this year’s universal GATE screening for 1st and 3rd grades. This year, all training materials for teachers, site testing coordinators and site administrators are available via the Google Drive. This e-mail should be shared with those at your site who are involved with ensuring a successful test administration (e.g. 1st and 3rd grade teachers, AP, SIC, etc.).

We ask that sites complete these steps to prepare for 1st grade GATE screening:

In this folder, we ask that sites review the following:

  • NNAT3 Directions for Administration

Additionally, we have included the files for Parent Testing Notification Letters & Opt Out Forms.

     2. Complete the 1st Grade Testing Logistics Survey
