About Our Department

The Office of Testing and Accountability provides the technology and skills necessary to carry out a quality standardized testing program as well as working with data required by the No Child Left Behind legislation. This includes overseeing the administration of the Maryland School Assessments (MSA) for Reading, Math and Science, High School Assessments (HSA) in English, Biology, Algebra and Government, PSAT, and Advanced Placement (AP) testing. The Office assists central office staff, principals, teachers, lead teachers and other school-based personnel in using a wide range of assessment data to achieve program and school improvement goals, including those directly related to student achievement and school performance.
