As published in the 2012-13 Assessment and Accountability Checklist, the delivery dates for the paper-based Winter Writing test are January 3 - 4, 2013, one week prior to the start of the Winter Writing test window. It has since come to ODE’s attention that not all districts will be back in session by January 4, so ODE will support a second delivery between January 8 - 9, 2013 for those districts who are returning late from Winter Break. Please note that the statewide test administration window will still open on January 9, 2013.
Over the course of the next week, your regional ESD partner will be contacting you to confirm when your district will receive its Winter Writing materials based on when your district is scheduled to return from Winter Break. Please be sure to follow up with your regional ESD partner by Friday December 7, 2012 to submit any necessary corrections.
