Questionnaires and Tracking Forms for Each Assessment
The materials staff ship questionnaires and tracking forms to the data collection staff in December of the year prior to the assessment:
Names of students who have participated in the assessment are never removed from the school premises to ensure that all personally identifiable information about students, their education performance, and their families remains confidential. The administration schedule, containing the names of participating students within the school, is a multi-part form. The section of the form with the students' names is removed and left in the school storage envelope before the administration schedule is returned to the materials processing center. In lieu of the student's name, an ID number is assigned to each completed booklet. This ID number allows data from student booklets and questionnaires to be matched during analysis.
