Field-Testing Opportunities

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.

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).
