Math 6 Accelerated Testing

  • April 27, 2021

    Most schools have finished testing at this point.  

    Results were compiled and letters were sent to buildings for students to bring home. Some schools may plan to mail these letters home. These letters contain your student's score and information on moving forward with acceleration. Students scoring 60% or higher can enroll in the MS Accelerated Math Pathway.

    Letters for students in the Digital Academy were mailed home. 

    Summer School Math 7

    Students who passed the accelerated placement test (earned 60% or higher) have the option of taking Math 7 over the summer. Students who choose this option will only need to take Math 8 in school next year. Summer school will be held at Berwick K-8. Breakfast and lunch are served each day in summer school.


    Dates: June 14 - July 22 (Mon - Thurs)

    Time: 8:00am - 1:00pm

    Columbus City Schools identifies Math 6 students each year who may qualify for math acceleration.

    To be identified, students must have met at least one of the requirements below:

    • Math 4 AIR score of 4 or 5
    • I-Ready test (beginning of current year) score of 514 or higher
    • Student already taking Math 6 while in Grade 5 this year
    • Student identified as gifted in Math or Superior Cog

    In order for students to be successful in this program, they must posses the following qualities:

    * Strong skills in math
    * Good study skills/habits and attendance
    * Independent thinking
    * Not afraid to ask questions
    * Good homework and test results

    Did you receive a letter or phone call?

    Students meeting at least one of the qualifications above were contacted by mail and by phone dialer.

    Students are not automatically considered accelerated. Placement into the program requires passing a 2.5 - 3 hour placement test. 

    Acceleration is not for everyone. Not all students who were identified will be interested in the program. Accelerated students will take two rigorous math classes at the same time next year. This is not easy, and students who may be struggling in their current class should keep that in mind. 

    Students and parents should review the documentation and videos at right and view/try the practice test below

    You can also download a test booklet and answer key in PDF form below. 


    We planned to have students test during the week of March 15, 2021. Since students will be returning to schools that week, some schools may wish to test later.

    Refer to the table below for the dates that your school will offer the test.

    If your school does not have dates listed, please contact that school for more information.

    At this time, we are reaching out to parents of students in the Digital Academy to see if they would like to test students at their home school. If this is not possible, we will make other arrangements such as testing at our South High Street Office.
