Department Overview

Student Assessment is a vital part of the educational experience. Our students have historically performed very well on statewide assessments, resulting in our district being awarded the highest level given to Mississippi Schools. We are extremely proud of that fact and want to thank you--parents, students, and community leaders--for your diligent efforts to attain that recognition.
We welcome your comments and feedback and ask you to contact us concerning Student Assessment.

The Office of Student Assessment has established this Test Security Hotline and Online Reporting Link as a confidential way for students, parents, staff, and community members to share test security concerns directly with the Office of Student Assessment at the Mississippi Department of Education.

You should use the Test Security Hotline and/or Online Reporting Link to report:

  • Cheating and/or questionable test behavior on any of MDE's tests;
  • Accessing questions prior to the test;
  • Taking photos or making copies of test questions or test materials;
  • Posting test questions on the internet (social media or websites);
  • Test Administrators who are not allowing students the proper accommodations based upon their Individualized Education Plan (IEP); or
  • Test administrator and/or test proctor misconduct (such as providing answers and/or questions to test takers, telling students to change their answers, allowing electronic devices to be used during testing, and/or permitting test takers to talk among themselves during testing).
