Testing Survey Reminder - Please Share with Accountability Director

Dear Superintendents,

You may have already seen that DPI is currently undertaking a research project to better understand the types and quantity of testing that is required by LEAs. To that end, we are asking all North Carolina LEA accountability staff to complete a 10-minute survey of local testing requirements.

The purpose of the survey is to gather information to help the State Board of Education ascertain areas where it might refine the State's testing program to ensure a strong focus on improving learning for students. The SBE will use this information when it convenes its Task Force on Summative Assessments in a few months.

Please answer all questions as they relate to LEA-specific testing rather than state or federally mandated testing (e.g. EOG, EOC, etc.). Your time and input is much appreciated!

If you have any questions about this project or survey, please contact Sachi Takahashi-Rial through email at, or by phone at 919.807.3706.
