State Dept. of Ed needs 120 volunteers to review 30,000 questions for new statewide test

Idaho’s state Department of Education is looking for 120 public school parents, teachers, administrators and school board members from all over the state to gather in Boise for four days in December to review test questions for the new statewide testing students will undergo this spring. The review will be Dec. 15-19 and will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. If that’s not enough time to get through all 30,000 test questions, participants may be asked to return to Boise Jan. 6-8, 2015.

The review is required by legislation that passed this year; the department says it’ll cover participants’ travel to Boise at the state rate and the cost of substitutes while teachers participate. There’s more info here.
