Since the spring of 2010, the Georgia Department of Education has been offering online retesting for use by interested school systems with those students in Grades 3, 5, and 8 who are required to take a CRCT Retest in Reading and/or Mathematics. We are writing to share with you that Sope Creek will be retesting students utilizing the online format for the upcoming 2014 retest administration. The information below is provided to allow you to briefly familiarize yourself with the features and advantages of the CRCT Online Retest.
• All test items in the online version of the CRCT Retests replicate those in the paper-and-pencil retest, so there will be no difference in content or difficulty level.
• To familiarize students with the CRCT Online Retest format prior to the operational test, students will have an opportunity to participate in a practice test that allows them to navigate through the online format and become familiar with online tools such as eliminating incorrect answers, underlining text, and marking answers for later review.
• In the online test format, students will see, one at a time, each test question and its corresponding group of answer choices.
