Statewide Assessment Training

On this page, you can find information about all test coordination and test administration training sessions and online resources.

Test Administrator Training

All test administrators for all state assessments are required to be trained for each statewide assessment they will administer. To support test coordinators, RIDE has developed a Test Administrator Core Training that covers topics applicable across all state assessments.

The presentation is editable so that schools can include information about their cell phone policy, process for tracking secure materials, testing calendars, and any other test administration information specific to their school.

Please note that this training is a core training and intended to supplement assessment-specific materials and administration information. It does not take the place of any online training modules required for test administrators prior to administering certain assessments (e.g., DLM, NGSA).

Training Materials

Click on the name of the assessment to show a list of training materials (e.g., recordings, presentations, handouts).

UPDATE (3/13/20): The Digital PSAT10 Hands-on Training sessions scheduled for Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17, have been canceled. 


Training opportunities for Test Coordinators, Test Administrators, and Technology Coordinators can be found on theWIDA ACCESS Preparation website.
