The September issue of “This Month in Assessment” has been posted to the OPI State Testing Website. Follow this direct link to access it.
3 TAKEAWAYS THIS MONTH!
1. Watch for updates to the OPI Statewide Testing Web Site and MontCAS Application. The OPI will begin refreshing the OPI Statewide Testing Web Site. Changes will happen on a flow-basis and will coincide with improvements to our online applications.
2. System Test Coordinators (STCs) must update user accounts in the online portals and platforms. Accounts for the following statewide assessments were cleaned up over the summer for security including TIDE (for Smarter Balanced testing), WIDA AMS (for EL Screeners and ACCESS for ELLs testing), MontCAS Application (for test security, participation, and accommodation appeals requests), and the Online Assessment Portal (for MSAA testing).
3. Send home Individual Student Reports (ISRs) to parents/guardians.
ISRs are arriving in district offices for the assessments administered last spring. Follow the details specific for each assessment on how to access these reports and share them with parents/guardians in a timely manner.
Past issues of the assessment newsletter are available on the OPI website here: Assessment Newsletter Archive.
