We also heard that they are not sure what the total point rubric will be (900 or 600 pts) and they also don’t believe that students will receive their test scores before the application closes, so families are encouraged to rank their school choices without that knowledge.
This new CPS High School Admissions Test will be given to ALL 8th grade CPS students and will be used to select students for any programs that previously had NWEA MAP scores in their rubric such as Selective Enrollment, Magnet, International Baccalaureate, Service Academies, CTE programs.

Just making sure – they haven’t released the application date for elementary schools, correct? Thanks!
