Subject: MAP/End-of-Course Item Writers Meeting, Application Deadline September 14
Source: Heidi Atkins Lieberman, Assistant Commissioner

Intended Audience: Special Education Contacts

Date: September 6, 2007

In anticipation of awarding a contract for the development and administration of the end-of-course exams for MAP Algebra I, MAP Biology, and MAP English II, the Assessment Section of DESE has scheduled an item writing meeting to be held on September 25-27, 2007, at the Assessment Resource Center in Columbia. The timeline for submitting the application to participate is very short and space is limited! The item writer application can be found on the Division of School Improvement web page.

Teachers are to download, complete, and return their application by fax to the Assessment Section at 573-526-0812. The link to download this form is www.dese.mo.gov/divimprove. Deadline is September 14.

Please distribute this information to any of your staff who may be eligible to apply. The item writer will need to be available to attend all three days of the meeting. Again, no applications will be accepted after September 14. Item writers who are chosen to attend will be notified within a week following the deadline.

We are confident that with the help of Missouri teachers, the development of the assessment will be valid and suitable for our secondary students. Thank you for your support of this important event.  If you have any questions or need assistance, please call the Assessment Section at 800-845-3545.
