Test Security and Incident Forms

OSSE takes test security very seriously.  As such, OSSE has developed Test Security Guidelines to ensure that its local educational agencies (LEAs) and school personnel are aware of the importance of maintaining strict security procedures. OSSE’s goal is for schools and LEAs to deliver uniform and equitable testing programs. For assessments to yield fair and accurate results, the assessments must be administered in consistent and standardized conditions; the best way to ensure that occurs is for all teachers and administrators to understand and recognize acceptable and unacceptable practice and to involve parents. The full Test Security Guidelines Manual [PDF] and Test Incident Report forms are available here, to read and download.
