The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) announced this week that the outside contractor who will be printing the paper/pencil Spring 2015 assessments has agreed to extend its project schedule by one week. As a result, MDE has extended the deadline for schools to opt for the paper/pencil waiver option to Friday, November 21, 2014.
MDE is using the additional week to best prepare the information and guidance to schools on the Spring assessment, and will provide it to schools next week—the week of November 10-14.
