UPDATE: Network security and use of computers 

Effective immediately, staff and students may now use their personal devices to access virtual learning and other tools. We ask all users to continue to avoid using Baltimore County schools devices to access City Schools resources. You may use asynchronous online platforms that we know are secure, such as iReady, Imagine Math, Amplify online, etc. 

We also ask all users to avoid opening emails from suspicious sources. For security, we have blocked all emails coming from Baltimore County, and ITD is monitoring all incoming emails for suspicious messages. If you receive a suspicious email, do not open it and report the occurrence to cityschoolsphish@bcps.k12.md.us.

Expires on 11/30

Assessment Resources

Testing integrity

Please follow these steps to maintain testing integrity.

  • Designate a school test coordinator and alternate to attend mandatory district training prior to each test administration
  • Principals and school test coordinators should develop a testing plan to ensure an effective and efficient testing experience for students 
  • Maintain the technology used for testing throughout the school year 
  • Keep testing materials (e.g. student authorization tickets, seal codes, and test booklets) in a secure place when they're not being used and where they can be accounted for at all times 
  • All staff administering tests should be trained and have signed the training certification forms 
  • School test coordinators should keep a copy of signed training certifications and student tracking forms on file for six years
  • As we transition to online testing, keep student authorization tickets and seal codes in a secure location 
  • Work collaboratively with the independent monitor assigned to your school
  • If you have any questions or concerns about testing, do not hesitate to contact the Achievement and Accountability Office at 410-396-8962
  • If you would like to report an incident anonymously, you may do so by calling 1-800-679-0185
