Assessment Help Desk Information


Montana's Assessment Division will put Montana's students first through a staged and collaborative approach with all public and non-public accredited schools. We will build rapport and strengthen our relationships with the field through providing advanced expectations of test administration and of state-offered professional learning opportunities. We will continue to be responsive to school assessment needs and challenges and will work to provide support to resolve issues. We will provide high-quality technical assistance to support test administration and high-quality professional learning to advance teaching and learning with our balanced assessment systems. We will continually address these topics until we have an entire community of practice who identifies, uses, and supports students through evidence-based instruction.
