The testing dates for the 2019-2020 school year have been set. The attached calendar includes the required assessments for grades K - 12. All testing must take place within the prescribed windows.
Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM), the alternate assessment for students with significant cognitive disabilities, will be administered to qualifying students in grades 3 - 10. Math and ELA are required on the DLM in both the fall and spring windows and together make up the summative score. Science is required only during the spring window. It is recommended that students be given the opportunity to take the science testlets during the fall window, but these scores will not contribute to the summative score.
There are two date options for the ACT at grade 11 in 2020. Each district must choose one of the windows during which to test all juniors. Schools may not test in both windows. In the fall of 2019, the District Test Coordinator will indicate their preferred administration window.
All districts will continue to administer their current K-2 assessment through the 2019-2020 school year.
