B. Pushing Forward Assessments
When starting a new program year or Period of Participation (PoP), if a learner has a valid pre-test that was administered within the last 3 months, per the AEI Assessment policy, grantees are not required to re-pre-test the learner. Rather, grantees may push forward the prior program year or PoP assessment into the new program year or PoP. If intending to post-test the learner in multiple subject areas, grantees must push forward all subject area assessments into the new program year or PoP.
See the 2020-21 State Assessment Policy for COVID-19 related exceptions.
Note: Assessments should not be pushed forward into the new program year until after July 1st annually.
When grantees push an assessment forward into a new program year or a new PoP, any instructional hours the learner accumulated after the date of their last “Pre-” test will also carry forward into the post-test eligibility tracking for the learner into the new program year or PoP. When LACES determines if the learner is post-test eligible, the system will include these carry-over hours from the prior program year or PoP.
