Remote Testing Options for 2021-2022

A remote testing option is being provided for the 2021-2022 Early Literacy and Mathematics Benchmark Assessments in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the young ages of these students, schools should first carefully consider all options for an in-person test administration, especially for students who might require some form of in-person accommodation or support or those who might lack computer skills.  

The following documents are provided to support districts and schools who choose to administer the assessments remotely. Since there is wide variance across the state in how schools are supporting students and families remotely, the documents can be modified to meet your specific needs and requirements. If you have questions, please call the Call Center at 877-560-8378 option 2 or email mde-oeaa@michigan.gov.
