State Assessments Technology Work Group (SATWG) ensures successful administration of computer-delivered assessments by developing a site readiness workbook, testing software releases, and providing feedback to the Minnesota Department of Education and to vendors before, during and after online test administrations.
Members of the SATWG include district technology coordinators, district technology staff, and district assessment coordinators. Committee members serve a two-year term. The committee meets every two months via conference call or occasionally in person.
Facts and Information About Ebola
The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is working with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to provide information about the Ebola virus to schools. And though, officials and health experts continue to stress that the risk to Minnesotans is currently very low, Gov Dayton and and MDH Commissioner Ehlinger have convened leaders in the health, human services and public safety sectors to develop prevention plans for our state.
