District and Campus Coordinator Resources

To improve the district and campus testing coordinators’ user experience, the Texas Education Agency’s (TEA’s) Student Assessment Division has switched the District and Campus Coordinator Manual to a digital platform. This new platform links to specific sections (e.g., Paper Administration Activities, Accessibility). Advantages of this approach include portability, allowing coordinators to access the resources through mobile devices, and interactive features such as digital test security oaths that can be submitted online directly from the platform.

District and Campus Coordinator Resources 

The resources will not be printed and shipped to districts. A printed version of the Calendar of Events will continue to be provided as a paper poster.
