Oct. 10 is survey deadline for choosing state test methods

As your district plans for new state tests this year, you can select to administer new math, English language arts, science and social studies tests through several methods – online, paper and pencil, or a combination of the two. Surveys of students after the spring 2014 field testing of these assessments showed that many students liked the computer-based test delivery system. But these options provide you maximum choice as you make the transition this year.
