Student Assessment

The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) through the Office of Student Assessment is soliciting competitive written proposals from qualified vendors for an English Language Proficiency Test. This assessment will provide technical services, professional development for test administration, teacher resources, and products for the English Language Proficiency Test (ELPT) criterion-referenced tests in the domains of Reading, Speaking, Listening, and Writing to assess the level of proficiency in the English language for students identified as English language learners.

The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) through the Office of Student Assessment is soliciting competitive written proposals from qualified vendors for administering Alternate Assessments for English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics for Grades 3-8, Science for Grades 5 & 8 and High School Algebra I, English II and Biology for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Section 300.160.C and No Child Left Behind (NCLB) both require an alternate assessment be provided based on alternate achievement standards for students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities (SCD) who by nature of their disability cannot access the general education standards.
