District/LEA Testing Coordinators:
All NECAP Testing Schedules must be submitted via eRIDE
As with fall NECAP testing, spring NECAP test schedules must now submitted via the new eRIDE tool. Test schedules submitted via email will no longer be accepted. District/LEA Testing Coordinators, please login to eRIDE and use the NECAP Schedule Tool to submit your schedule.
Note: The tool only allows schedule submission from a district or LEA level and not from school-level personnel.
If you login to eRIDE and an icon for the NECAP Schedule Tool is not visible, please email NECAP@ride.ri.gov.
Read the Guidance document for the NECAP Schedule Tool in eRIDE [Doc, 369KB].
The guidance document has been updated to reflect feedback from the field.
If you have additional questions about the tool, please email NECAP@ride.ri.gov.
If you are a district/LEA testing coordinator and you do not have an eRIDE account, please contact the eRIDE Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NECAP Science 2013 Testing Window schedule submission deadline is Friday, April 26, 2013.
