Memo: Spring 2018 Grades 3–8 English Language Arts and Mathematics Tests and Grades 3–8 English Language Arts and Mathematics Field Tests

The Office of State Assessment released a memo in March 2018 with important information about Grades 3-8 testing, including details on receiving and opening test materials, use of calculators, and additional information about embedded field questions. 

The memo also includes important scheduling information for our operational CBT schools that will have some students testing on paper due to IEP/504 plan testing accommodations or low incidence languages: 

"If a CBT school chooses to start testing on the first day of the ELA CBT administration window, Tuesday, April 10, they may open the corresponding PBT materials on the same day if needed to allow students who, pursuant to an IEP or 504 Plan, will be testing on paper, or to provide the test read accommodation to students testing on computer with a human reader" (page 4).
