Assessment Coordinator Designation Forms

Required each school year for submission to the testing contractor.

According to the California Code of Regulations, each local educational agency (LEA) shall designate one person as the test coordinator for each assessment by completing the designation form. Some assessments require LEAs to submit by a certain date.

A new designation form is required each school year and is submitted to the testing contractor, not to the California Department of Education.

Once the form is received by the testing contractor, the designated test coordinator will receive important communications and will be provided access to secure information during the school year. If the designee changes during the school year, a new designation form must be completed.

In addition, a new designation form is required each school year to be submitted to the testing contractor, not to the CDE, for the California High School Proficiency Examination (CHSPE).
