“The Department strongly recommends that students take only one part (i.e. Part 1 or Part 2) of a content area test per day.”
This is NOT a mandate; however, this practice can be of benefit to students, though it could potentially impact six full school days (5th Grade).
1. Schedule Part 1 one day and Part 2 another day or later that same day.
2. Schedule Parts 1 and 2 to run consecutively and uninterrupted with students taking restroom breaks very sparingly as needed (most often used for 5th and 8th grade science tests).
• Well before your testing window, read pages 8-12 in the WCSD Primer for Testing and discuss the information with all staff working with special needs students, especially the following:
Please work collaboratively and observe all check in/check out procedures when transferring materials to an off-site location.
