The winter window for the paper-based Statewide Writing Assessment closes on Thursday, February 20, 2014. Students taking the winter paper writing assessment have through the end of the day on February 20 to complete testing. Districts must use the return kits delivered by Monday, February 10 to package student responses in preparation for shipment, following the instructions on pp. G-22 - G-23 of the Test Administration Manual. By March 4, 2014, districts must then ensure that all student responses are shipped for scanning and that all unused test booklets, including blank overage booklets, are securely destroyed. If you have any questions about the return shipment process, please contact your Regional ESD Partner.
