Online and Blended Learning - Share Your Opinion

We would like to gather feedback about the current and future use of online and blended learning models for students, as well as for educator professional development. We have partnered with Michigan Virtual University’s Virtual Learning Research Institute to develop a brief online survey that consists of only 8 questions. The results of the survey will be used as part of MVU’s efforts to gather stakeholder feedback from different educational groups as they work to finalize a strategic plan in 2017.

College Board Accommodations Info

A recent edition of MDE's Spotlight on Assessment and Accountability has some great information about accommodations including guidance on handling extended testing time for students and submitting changes to accommodations. If you have a new student in your school who had been approved for accommodations at their old school, there are also instructions for transferring that a student's records over to your school's account within the College Board system.
