WebXam News
As spring arrives, we encourage WebXam teachers and administrators to review the upcoming WebXam deadlines for the school year.
Upcoming deadlines include:
  • The last day to upload student data in bulk is April 7. Past this deadline, school district staff will not be able to use the data file processing tool and will have to enter students individually.
  • April 21 is last day to offer posttests for school districts who are using the pretest and posttests to measure their students' improvement.
The last day for students to take field tests is May 12. Field testing is used to collect student performance data on tests, which requires an earlier close date to allow time for processing.

June 2 is the last day for WebXam testing.  It is important that test administrators plan for the upcoming dates as it is not possible for us to make exceptions.
