Test Security and Incident Forms

OSSE provides Test Security Guidelines and resources to ensure that schools and LEAs 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 assessments are administered equitably is for all LEA and school personnel to be aware of OSSE’s requirements for maintaining strict security procedures.

To read more about the importance of test security, please refer to the June 2011 letter from the US Department of Education addressed to the Chief State School Officers.
