      Hi.

      I am glad  this website available! We moved to Chicago early this year and I am still learning about Chicago public school system. My son is currently in Kindergarten and we are preparing tests for SEES(classical and RGC) for 1st grade. I’ve heard that if children applying for 1st grade programs are tested in groups and also child will fill in the bubble answer during the test. Is that correct? Also, do we need to schedule two appointments for the both tests?  I would be appreciated any advice here.

      Thank you!

      yes that is correct do it as a group and they do have to do fill in bubble questions so make sure they are comfortable doing that and staying on that line of possible bubble answers. No penalties for wrong answers so guessing is encouraged if they dont know the answer.

        Thank you very much for your reply, Jazzman!

        Also, do you know how many kids will be in the group during the test? Will an examiner read the questions? or will kids need to read the question themselves?

        Thank you again. Your answer is super helpful!
