Missouri Public Schools to Use CTB/McGraw-Hill

Beginning with the 2014-15 academic year, Missouri’s public schools will use CTB/McGraw-Hill to administer updated online statewide assessments to measure Missouri students’ progress toward state standards. The change will begin in the 2014-15 school year.

Missouri’s relationship with CTB/McGraw-Hill is not new; the state has used the assessment company for almost two decades:

"TheState of Missourihas been a strong, longstanding partner for nearly 20 years, and we are proud that it has chosen CTB/McGraw-Hill to serve its public school students and educators in assessing students' academic proficiency," saidEllen Haley, president of CTB/McGraw-Hill.” (source)

The most notable changes to the state’s assessments are a shift from paper to online testing and the addition of both Interim Assessments and End-of-High School (EOHS) Summative Assessments.

Missouri’s new contract with CTB/McGraw-Hill includes:
· Interim Assessments (NEW)

All of the new assessments will be administered online, enabling schools to receive detailed student performance feedback in as little as 10 days after testing is complete.

The State Board of Education approved the Department’s proposed FY15 budget, which included $18 million in additional funds for student assessments and teacher resources — in September 2013, including additional funds for the new CTB/McGraw-Hill assessment contract. The budget is subject to the normal appropriations process.

Assessment costs to school districts will not change in 2014-15.
