CASAS conducts ongoing research and evaluation activities that use field-based collaborative efforts to develop effective assessment, evaluation, and program resources. CASAS conducts several research projects each year that provide opportunities for programs to participate in field-testing activities.
Field-testing helps build students’ test-taking confidence, provides opportunities for informal evaluation of students’ work, and contributes to field-based research and evaluation.
How can I participate in field-testing?
If you are interested in field-testing, please complete this survey: New CASAS Reading and Math Assessment Questionnaire. Please e-mail FieldTesting@casas.org if you have additional questions.
What does field-testing involve?
Cost to Agency:
No cost. CASAS provides all testing and shipping materials.
Clerical staff and/or professional staff time is needed to administer the tests, but there are no requirements apart from the agency's already established testing routines. Depending on your location, CASAS staff may be able to assist your site in administering field-tests.
From 1 to 1.5 hours, depending on the test. Teachers are asked to administer the test to the correct class level within a set time frame (a one to two-week period).
