NSCAS Test Development Summer 2019

NSCAS test development opportunities are available for the summer 2019.  We encourage all educators to apply for the posted opportunities. It is important to NDE to get broad representation from districts, and it is a great learning experience for educators! NDE would also like to encourage educators with various backgrounds to apply. The whole process is best when diverse voices contribute to the creation and maintenance of NSCAS assessments.  The Application is below.
