Need help with CRCT in Georgia

Postby pgigglebrain » Tue May 01, 2007 4:57 am

I am required by law to give my son the CRCT this year and don't have the first clue how to even go about ordering/buying the CRCT. Please tell me there are some Georgia residents out there who know how to do this.

Actually, the law for GA says you have to take a national standardized achievement test every three years beginning at the end of the third grade. Test scores are not required to be submitted to public school authorities, and the test certainly doesn't have to be the CRCT if you can find another national standardized test you prefer. However...

If you read the ppt presentation there, you find that everyone is assigned to one of 12 districts, and I think you have to have the district get you a user name and password so you can take the test online. If the district wants you to take the test, I assume they can help you with the details of how, have you tried asking them?

Incidently, GHEA has some info on other tests you could take instead:
