2008 testing windows
Many districts are making their 2007-2008 school calendars. We know that having the test dates help you in that planning.
Here are the following testing windows for ISAT, IMAGE and PSAE. The 2008 window dates for ACCESS and IAA are posted online at http://www.isbe.net/assessment/pdfs/Chart2008.pdf.
The 2008 testing window for grades 3-8 ISAT and IMAGE will be March 3 -- 14, 2008.This is one week earlier than usual due to spring breaks tied to holidays.
As in the past, districts will be allowed to modify this testing window to an earlier or later testing window under certain circumstances. The early and late windows are noted below.
Test window modification forms for ISAT and IMAGE for the 2008 testing year is posted online at http://www.isbe.net/assessment/pdfs/Modification_2008.pdf.
PSAE dates will be April 23-24, 2008, with makeup testing May 7-8, 2008.
