6/3/19: This article has been updated for the spring 2019 CBT administration regarding access to student constructed responses.
Parents who request access to view their student's constructed responses (CRs) entered on computer (CBT) can view them online at the school or be provided with a print version of the student's CRs. This is available for both ELA and Math.
Page 62 of the School Administrator's Manual indicates that all parents have the right to view their student's constructed responses. This is also true for students who test on paper.
Review of Test Sessions by Students and Parents
For the 2018 Grades 3–8 English Language Arts or Mathematics Test administration, students and their parents/guardians may be allowed to review only the student’s own responses to open-ended questions in English Language Arts Session 2 and Mathematics Session 2 after the responses have been scored and the scoring window has closed. Parents may be allowed to read passages associated with students’ responses. The review must take place in the presence of school personnel to ensure that the student’s responses are not changed as they are being reviewed. Schools may provide copies of the student’s responses to open-ended questions to parents upon request.
