COVID-19 - Assessment Updates

2020-21 COVID-19 Related Updates

Requirements for the 2020-21 administration of statewide assessments remain unchanged under state and federal law. We recognize schools are facing many challenges related to safe and effective instruction and assessment. The Department of Public Instruction is monitoring the situation closely, is working with state and local partners, and will share information as it becomes available.


This resource provides considerations for district and school leaders to use in identifying initial student needs and monitoring ongoing student learning from an equity lens to ensure every student has what they need to learn when they need it. It offers a process and sources of data to identify and align the unfinished learning students need to advance on grade-level standards within the current/upcoming unit of study.

This can be used to enhance student learning. Families can use the suggested strategies to check for student understanding, provide feedback on student learning, and set learning goals at home together with their students.

This resource provides links to various test practice tools for each of our statewide assessments that students can access from home.
