The Office of Assessment oversees the administration of all federally-, state-, and district mandated assessments.  The office serves as the main point of contact with the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) on all matters related to test administration, graduation requirements and accountability. 

The office works collaboratively with other offices to share timely and accurate information and data to various stakeholders. In addition, the Office of Assessment coordinates all work related to the Bridge Plan for Academic Validation. 

We work directly with School Test Coordinators (STCs) and principals on test administration procedures, as well as test security matters at each of the schools.  Every school is provided support to ensure that all students have the optimal testing experience.  This includes:

  • The identification of students eligible to participate in assessments.
  • Training of staff in the proper administration of assessments.
  • Test administration and maintaining test security.
  • Processing state data files.
  • Providing logistical support to high school Bridge Plan Coordinators, as well as other BCPS offices, related to the Bridge Plan for Academic Validation.
  • Providing information, updates, and professional development to appropriate stakeholders related to assessments, accountability, and graduation requirements.
