Winter Pretest Window

The use of pretests can help document student gain, along with the observations and measurements conducted directly by the instructor and other local district staff. The window for winter pretesting is January 2nd through February 1st, 2019. As a reminder, students must take the posttest on or before April 26th, 2019, to receive a student gain calculation.

Posttests and field tests will still be available during the winter pretest window so it is important to activate the correct test.
