Winter Writing Eligibility

Before distributing paper-based winter writing materials to schools for administration, districts should check to ensure that only eligible Grade 11 and 12 students are tested.
  • Students in Grades 9 or 10 may not access the writing assessment.
  • Students in Grade 11 or 12 who have a banked "meets" or "exceeds" score from a previous year may not retest.

Please note that if your district has any Grade 12 students who have not already met or exceeded and who would like to use the writing assessment to meet their Writing Essential Skill graduation requirement, those students may test during the winter test window only; Grade 12 students may not test during the spring test window. If you have eligible Grade 12 students who need access to the writing assessment who did not have a paper-based test ordered for them, you may either use a "blank" overage booklet or administer the test online.
