Oct 11, 2021

Content Advisory Committees met to provide input for item writer and item reviewer clarification to the Grade 5 Statewide Science Assessment, Grade 8 Statewide Science Assessment, and Biology 1 End-of-Course (EOC) Assessment Test Item Specifications documents. Based on the committees’ recommendations, minor updates to the specifications are included in the introductory sections, sample items, clarifications, assessment limits, attributes, glossary, and appendices. A list of revisions is located in Appendix G of each specifications document. These updates were provided to item writers for use in items beginning with the Spring 2022 assessments.
