Education reform and compliance with federal laws and regulations relies on data to demonstrate student growth and performance. The DC CAS results are tied to numerous State educational agency decisions related to federal funding.
As the State educational agency, OSSE must be able to rely upon the fidelity of the results through evidence of a secure and appropriate testing environment. It is, therefore, essential to the integrity of the DC CAS that testing participants and administrators comply fully with security protocols.”
To support LEAs and schools as they endeavor to administer state tests with fidelity, please see the attached ethics and integrity training module.
