At or prior to the beginning of each school year, ATI recommends that districts and charters contact their ATI Educational Management Services (EMS) coordinator to begin the assessment planning process. EMS staff will help district/charter personnel to create a comprehensive assessment plan that addresses their goals and that answers questions such as:
- How many benchmarks assessments will there be during the year?
- When will benchmark testing occur?
- Which subjects and grade levels will be tested?
- Should technology enhanced items be included on assessments?
EMS staff will work closely and efficiently with district personnel to ensure that the resulting benchmark assessments are of the highest quality. Of course, quality requires time so it is important for you to allow for a 2 week delivery window for pre-made assessments and a 6 week window for assessments aligned to district curriculum. Check out the Galileo Help Files for resources including this guide, Assessment Planner and the Test Review process. Contact Educational Management Services today.
