Intermediate Compacted and Accelerated Math Placement

Procedures and Resources

  • 6th Grade Accelerated Math students will need a TI-84+ graphing calculator.

  • Regular communication is sent via email from your child’s math teacher.  This is an excellent way to know exactly how your child is doing in their class.

  • 5th Grade Math Placements are made by CISD’s Pre-K - 6th Grade Math Coordinator using the student’s 4th Grade CoGAT/ITBS scores.  If you do not agree with your child’s placement, you may file an appeal within the appeal window.

  • There are no formal Math Placements made for 6th grade.  If you would like a change of placement for 6th grade, you will need to contact your child’s current math teacher and it will be a campus decision.

  • If at any time you would like your child to move down a level, please contact your child’s counselor.

  • Sixth grade students will take the IAAT (Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test) to provide an additional data point in measuring algebra readiness.

  • Math Placement Testing
