Coming Soon: Changes to Test Activation
Starting December 14th, 2018, teachers and administrators will be required to specify the District/Career Center that owns or runs the program of which the test is a part. This will be related to test activation and will be the second step in the activation wizard. The activation wizard will default to the teacher’s profile location but can be changed to any district or Career Center in the area. Administrators at Career Centers that run programs at satellite schools should assist teachers in making the correct selections. This is being done to improve the accuracy of End of Year Reporting. How to Activate Tests
New Pathway Practice Tests for 2017-18 Project Year
Thirty-seven new pathway practice tests have been posted for use by both teachers and students. These practice tests, each with 20 items, represent a sample from all the end-of-course item banks. There are items from all courses included in the pathway. Please note that none of these items are included on the pretest or post-test - their purpose is to simulate the experience of the post-tests. ( More information )
