  • On April 20, 2018 at 10:00 am local time, there is a National School Walkout event across the nation. It is anticipated Idaho's students may choose to participate in this event. This is taking place during a few statewide assessments' open windows. The Idaho State Department of Education is recommending LEAs do not schedule testing for this day. We suggest to utilize other dates throughout the assessment windows to complete testing.

  • The Paper Test Window opens today, Monday, April 2, and will close on Friday, May 4. Paper test materials ordered for students requiring this accommodation should now be available at all districts. If materials have not arrived, please contact the Idaho Help Desk.

    Students should respond directly into their paper test booklets. Once testing is completed, test proctors will need to transcribe student responses into the Data Entry Interface. The card to access the Data Entry Interface can be found on any one of the Assessment pages. As soon as student responses are finished and test are submitted in the Data Entry Interface, materials should be returned to MI and AIR according to the Return Instructions received with the paper test materials.
