Reminder for Paper-Based Testing Requests:
The Achievement Testing Mode Selection Application
is open through October 15, 2021

No action needs to be taken if your school site(s) will remain
computer-based for Spring 2021

All Achievement testing is, by default, administered to students by computer/online. The application to request paper administration for school site(s) is now open to District Test Coordinators in ADEConnect and will close October 15, 2021

To request paper administration, log into ADEConnect. Select Assessments. Click on the dropdown for Achievement Reports and select Achievement Testing Mode to begin. You must have the ADEConnect role of Achievement District Test Coordinator to submit a request for paper administration. You will need to enter a reason for the testing mode change for each test for the site(s) that request paper administration. The Assessment section will review each request individually and update the status in the application.

If a site selects a paper administration for the AASA operational assessment in April 2022, the site will also administer paper tests for the AASA Writing Stand-Alone Field Test in January-February 2022. This will not be a separate selection within the Testing Mode Request application.

Please note: For AzSCI to be administered as a paper test, every student response must be key entered into the TestNav online testing platform once the students have completed testing by a Test Administrator who has been trained and who has completed a test security agreement. All student responses for AzSCI must be entered in TestNav before the end of the AzSCI test window.
