Guidelines for Electronic Device during testing

Prior to test administration, District and Building Assessment Coordinators must create a
specific policy for the use of electronic devices by students and staff during testing.
Personal electronic devices that are not used for testing pose a large security risk to all
state assessments. As accessibility to and the use of additional electronic devices has
increased over the last few years, among both students and staff, instances of cheating,
plagiarism, and inappropriate use of devices have had a negative impact on the validity
and reliability of the state’s assessments. This has also caused the invalidation of student
tests and has resulted in negative impacts to assessment participation and accountability.
