Hamilton High School sophomores will take the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examination (WKCE) the week of Oct. 29. School attendance is especially encouraged and all out-of-school appointments should be avoided during the test week.
A parent letter and brochure entitled “Student/Parent Pre-Test Information” will be sent home with students in the weeks preceding the test. This brochure will provide parents and students with additional information about the purpose and format of the test. The brochure also will identify a website with access to sample questions. Parents are encouraged to go over the guide with their children and stress the importance of doing their best on the test.
Test results will allow students to better understand academic strengths and weaknesses and plan their remaining academic courses to strengthen these areas. In addition, the WKCE provides the district with valuable information regarding curricular adjustments and alignment with state standards.
For further information about the test, contact the Hamilton High School Guidance Department at (262) 246-6476.
