QUIA Update:  I called QUIA regarding their announcement (below) on our QUIA site...

"We will be offline for scheduled maintenance from Saturday, May 7 at 10 p.m. Pacific Time to Sunday, May 8 at 12 a.m. (2011/05/08 05:00-07:00 GMT). Please make sure to save your work and log off before this time. Thanks for your patience while we work to keep our site running smoothly."

** They said QUIA will only be 'offline' for two (2) hours Saturday night (2200 to midnight).
...so you shouldn't have any problem doing your TEST # 2 considering that it was originally scheduled to cutoff at 1200 noon on Saturday...

****************************************************************************************

This is an opportunity for you to "leap the Grand Canyon"

with regards to your Trimester 3 Grade...Why?  Well, you can

take these TESTs as many times as you want, up to the morning

that each TEST closes out, to achieve the grade you desire.



...and...



When you hit the 8th Grade STAR Review TESTs, we will

do 'Grade Rippling'...which can help further boost your

Tri-3 History grade......so HOW is that possible??



Well...the FIRST three (3) 8th Grade TESTs give

you an opportunity to leap a tall building with

a single bound...to be faster than a speeding bullet!




Say you only achieve a 76 on 8th Grade TEST #1...

IF you achieve a HIGHER grade on TEST #2, say, a 90%,

then TEST #1 will be converted to the TEST #2 score, or a

90%
That would be two (2) 90's in a row! 

...and...  IF you achieve an even HIGHER grade on TEST #3,

say a 97%, then your TESTs #1 & #2
will be also be converted

to a 97%
WOWZERS!  THREE (3) 97's in a ROW?  YEAH!!



** understand that 'Rippling' ONLY counts when

you improve over your previous score, for 8th Grade

Tests 1, 2 & 3.  You cannot
'Ripple' if you skip a TEST...



**********************************************

* Also understand that you MUST
complete TESTs

#1, #2 and #3...any shortcuts on TESTs will make

the 'Rippling' null & void... meaning you can't just

answer just a few questions on either #1
or #2 to

simply to give TEST #3 your best effort, and expect

THAT effort to 'ripple' back to TESTs #1 & #2. 

Remember the whole purpose of these TESTs is

to prepare
YOU
for the CST/STAR Test next

Wednesday, so that you will be as prepared as

you possibly can be...

**********************************************




Now, 8th Grade TESTs #4 & #5 will be taken as

individual
TESTs...no 'Rippling' here...



Well...there you have it...you have the opportunity

to better your Tri-3 History grade...It's up to you...


UP!  UP! ...and AWAAAYY!!
