Writing Assessment Window Opens January 8, 2014

The winter window for the Statewide Writing Assessment opens for both online and paper and pencil administration on Wednesday, January 8, 2014.

Students participating in this window have between January 8 and February 20 (paper administration) or March 21 (online administration) to complete their writing assessments. Paper assessments must be shipped by districts for scanning by no later than March 4.

Eligible students in grades 11 and 12 have one opportunity to take the writing assessment; they may take either the online or paper administration in either of the two windows (the spring window opens in April and closes May 22). Eligible students are those that have not previously met or exceeded the standard on the state writing assessment. Please note that grade 12 students will not receive results back from the spring window until early July, which would not be in time for making graduation decisions.

For those who ordered paper-based tests, secure test booklets will arrive in districts by Tuesday, January 7. Additional blank copies of the folders can also be obtained to address enrollment fluctuations by contacting your Regional ESD Partner.
