Status of Online Testing in SREB States.
Thomas, William R.
This report, based on a survey completed by testing directors in states that are members of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), describes the status of online testing in SREB states. Overall, SREB states are paying limited attention to online testing. Only Virginia is moving systematically to implement online testing. By spring 2004, all Virginia high schools must be able to use online testing. Several SREB states, including Delaware and Kentucky, are conducting pilot tests to study the potential of online testing, Texas has one online assessment, algebra. Mississippi uses some online testing for students who need to make up examinations, and Maryland and North Carolina are using computerized adaptive testing that is designed to meet the needs of disabled students. Some states outside the SREB region are addressing online testing, with Idaho, Indiana, and Oregon leading in this effort. The experience of Virginia shows steady progress toward the goal of having all students able to take the states Standards of Learning tests online by spring 2004. A summary of state responses to questions about online testing is included. (SLD)
