  1. An Assessment Window is the length of time the school is allowed to test.  A student will take the assessment at a time during the Assessment Window.

  2. Principals will communicate the specific testing days for each grade level closer to the administration window to accommodate other activities occurring in the school calendar.   

  3. Many of the assessments are online and do not require all students to test at the same time/day.  This will allow more flexibility in testing and is the reason for the longer assessment windows.

  4. Universal screener and benchmark results are used to determine individual student Glossary Link intervention needs, monitor student progress, and drive instructional needs.

  5. Results from ACCESS for ELL students determine proficiency levels for ESL students & the proper placement in the ESL program.

  6. Testing times vary per grade. The following link gives a detail list of state test and times.

  2. Alternative assessment available to students with disabilities for whom participation in the regular state assessment is inappropriate, even with the use of extensive accommodations.

  3. Results from screeners and benchmarks will be communicated to parents after each testing.  TCAP results are expected Fall 2017.

  4. TDOE will communicate later in the year how parents can access the questions & answers on state-required tests.

  5. Each spring, a stand-alone field test will be administered to select schools for ELA and U.S. History &Geography.  Field test do not count toward student grades or teacher evaluation.
