Testing Next Week

Next week, two standardized tests will take place on campus.

  • On Monday, March 17th and Tuesday, March 18th, all DVD juniors will take the California State University Early Assessment Program Essay Exam in their English 11 class. The EAP is an opportunity for students to obtain information about their readiness for CSU college-level English and mathematics. If they do well on the exam, they will test out of CSU remedial courses.
  • On Tuesday, March 18th and Wednesday, March 19th, all DVD sophomores and a few upperclassmen will take the California High School Exit Exam. The exam will test their English and math skills, and the students must pass both sections in order to graduate high school. If they do not pass this time around, there will be other opportunities.

Please encourage your student to get plenty of sleep, eat healthfully and study the test-strategy notes their teachers have shared with them.
