AEO announces CASAS Webinars on Remote Testing!!!

Earlier today, JoDee forwarded correspondence from Carolyn Zachary of the AEO regarding California taking steps to establish remote testing for adult education students. OTAN/CASAS will be hosting webinars covering remote testing for COAAPS, Citizenship and Pre- and Post-testing. Once the Zoom link information is posted, the various Webinar information will be posted on the calendar.

You will have two opportunities to participate in each set of webinars – Important-you need only attend one of each set of webinars!!! COAAPs and Citizenship remote testing will be covered at 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on April 30; and pre- and post-testing will be covered at 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on May 4.

If you have any immediate questions, please contact JoDee.

Slides from CASAS Remote Testing Update Webinar available!!!

In case you were unable to listen in to the CASAS Remote Testing Update Webinar, CASAS has posted the slides from the presentation. One important piece of information that was shared is that states may allow local agencies to exempt distance learning students from pre- and post-testing if the local program is unable to provide testing due to COVID-19. I am sure there will be more direction coming from the AEO as soon as they determine a response that complies with the guidelines that are spelled out within the slides. To access the slides, use the following link: CASAS Remote Testing Update slides 4/22/20.
