Mississippi Student Testing Task Force

In May 2018 the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) established the Mississippi Student Testing Task Force to examine current student testing on the state and local school district levels and to determine best practices for monitoring student progress in meeting grade-level and subject area learning goals.

The goals of the task force are:

  • to determine the types, quality and amount of tests students take on the state and district level;
  • to provide recommendations on ways to ensure student testing is streamlined but measures the learning goals designed by Mississippi teachers; 
  • to discover and recommend best practices for student testing on the state and district level.

Meetings of the task force will be live streamed and archived. It is anticipated that the task force will produce a report on its findings and recommendations in 2019.

The MDE will be accepting public comment on student testing at the following address:

All comments will be made available publicly on a monthly basis. Any contact information provided will be released pursuant to a public records request.
