Test security guidelines have been developed by the Montana Office of Public Instruction to be used by system test coordinators and test administrators in order to maintain the integrity of all Montana Comprehensive Assessment System assessments. Below are resources to assist test coordinators, test administrators and other educational staff assisting with statewide assessments in understanging and following these policies.
