NECAP Online Writing 2012
The VT Agency of Education is pleased to announce an opportunity for schools to participate in the NECAP Online Writing Pilot at grades 8 and 11 this spring. Following a very successful first year, Measured Progress is expanding the program to provide additional schools with the chance to participate in the Online Pilot in order for the schools to do the NECAP Writing Assessment online this October. Schools must test between 90-100% of their eligible students. The use of pencil and paper will be viewed as an exception necessary to meet individual student needs only.
