Test Coordinators Training

To view resources from previous trainings, please visit the Test Coordinator Resources page.

OSSE has released an assessment training schedule for the 2018-19 school year. This schedule includes registration links, as well as the target audience for each event. Please note that Test Security Training is a required event for LEA Test Coordinators. Each Test Security Training event on the calendar will cover the same content, so LEA Test Coordinators need only attend one of the three sessions listed.

Final registration links for ACCESS and MSAA training events will be posted soon. DLM science alternate training information is also forthcoming. Updates to the training schedule will be announced in the NGA Bulletin.
