Do Not Score Letter

Update for 2016:  Under the TEA Rules passed for 2016, the instruction to code the refused assessment has been formalized.  The districts do not have discretion to use another code.  When a student refuses a test, or is present at school but not tested, school districts routinely code the answer sheet of the student with code “S”, instructing the TEA to score the blank form and, as a result, record a zero for the student.  This form letter discusses that issue.
