    • Students will take a live proctored exam during a specific time via a Google Meet.  Students will receive a calendar invite via their student gmail account by Tuesday, May 26th. Students should reply YES to the invite. Any additional details will be provided by that date as well. 

    • All assessments are timed for two hours. See dates and times below. 

    • Students should secure a quiet space during testing. In cases where siblings are testing together, separate rooms must be utilized.

    • In preparation for Phase 2, students may review the North Carolina Standard Course of Study for their assessment areas.
