5/19/17 Updates

CBT Call Notes - 5/19/17


Based on data from COB on 5/17:  73% have completed ELA; 70% have completed math

There are still two weeks left to test.  To date, at least 98% of students have started a testlet.

Today is the last day to enroll a student in the Educator Portal to enable the student to test.  There is nothing prohibiting you to add information after today but by doing so, it will not be included in accountability.

Special Circumstance Codes must be added before the close of the testing window.  Can no go in after the fact.
