  • Attention Teachers:

    Click on this link to access printable PDF copies of the 2015-2016 WV Diagnostic Assessments.  Teachers will need to login using their @k12.wv.us email and password to view/print the PDFs. Due to the temporary unavailability of the 2015-2016 WV Diagnostic Assessments in the Test Delivery System (TDS), the Office of Assessment wanted to offer PDF versions of the tests until they are available online.  We will update the portal message once the 2015-2016 WV Diagnostic Assessments have been deployed in the TDS.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

  • Attention District Coordinators, Principals, and Teachers: 

    The 2015-2016 WV Diagnostic Assessments will be temporarily unavailable. We will update this message when teachers are able to access and administer these diagnostic assessments. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    In the meantime, we urge you to encourage your teachers to use the Interim Comprehensive Assessments and the Interim Assessment Blocks, which are scheduled to become available for use Monday, August 15, 2016.

    Please be advised that we are in the process of developing new 2016-2017 Diagnostic Assessments that will include many enhancements and will become available later in the school year. For the 2016-2017 school year, we hope to offer both the 2015-2016 Diagnostic Assessments and the 2016-2017 Diagnostic Assessments.
