The GAA High School Retest

Students pursuing a regular education diploma, who are assessed on the GAA and do not achieve a proficient score in one or more content areas, will be offered retest opportunities. • Only students who were enrolled in the ninth grade during the 2008–2009 school year and beyond and who are seeking a regular education diploma may exercise the option to retest. • Students seeking a special education diploma are not required to retest.

8

Training before the Retest

• • It is crucial that teachers administering the retest are provided training and remediation before beginning the assessment.

Training should begin with a review of the Individual Student Report (ISR) to ensure that the teacher is aware of the content area(s) requiring retest as well as the reasons the student was not proficient initially.

9

Training Before the Retest

• • Training on the State level will be provided via webinar sessions with topics specific to various target groups.

 Teachers may log-on to participate in any or all of these sessions.

Training at the local level (system and/or school) should utilize the information and materials provided by the state located on the GAA Presentations portlet.

 The student may retest twice in the same administration year.

Training must be provided to teachers before the retest is administered.
