2012-13 READY NCEXTEND2 Online Assessments

For the 2012-13 school year, allNCEXTEND2 assessments will be delivered in an online format. This includes the NCEXTEND2 assessments for Biology, English II, Algebra I/Integrated I, Grades 3-8 English Language Arts and Mathematics, and Grades 5 and 8 Science. In the fall of 2007, the NCDPI conducted a feasibility study for both the end-of-grade and end-of-course assessments for online delivery of the NCEXTEND2 assessments. Teachers also suggested features that would ensure an optimal testing environment for the students. During the spring 2011 item tryouts, the NCEXTEND2 assessments were administered completely online. The success observed and lessons learned with the administration of the NCEXTEND2 assessments helped move NC forward in the transition to online assessments.

NOTE: LEAs have the option of administering NCEXTEND2 assessments in the online or paper-and pencil format; however, online testing is strongly encouraged. For more information, please contact Kayla Siler at Kayla.siler@dpi.nc.gov or visit www.ncpublicschools.org/accountabillity/testing .
