Assessment Quality Assurance - Grade-Level and End-of-Course Assessments - Spring 2019

As part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) required monitoring process, the DESE uses this document as a tool to monitor and strengthen statewide administration of the Missouri Assessment Program’s Statewide Assessments. The questions are designed to focus attention and help districts examine important areas of assessment training, administration, and test security.

This form is used both for district self-monitoring purposes and by Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) employees or designees during an on-site Quality Assurance (QA) visit.

The complete form can be found at http://tiny.cc/deseqa or https://dese.mo.gov/college-career-readiness/assessment/qa.

Forms must be entered electronically by June 21, 2019.
