Please advise students of the 2020-21 test date schedule. Your students should be aware of athletic tournament dates and should attempt to schedule their respective test date away from tournament dates of the sport or sports in which they are interested and participate. Following are test dates for 2020-21 (publicized as of May 15, 2020) and dates where tournaments would create conflict.
2020-21 MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION EXAM DATES
Beginning in 2014-15 the Michigan Department of Education instituted a spring online testing period which involves a window of approximately four or seven weeks. At the time of the MHSAA Handbook printing, the 2019-20 window was published as Monday-Friday, April 12-May 7, 2021. The window does not appear to conflict with MHSAA spring tournaments and has apparently increased flexibility as the online tests may be administered on any instructional day and not all students. It also appears that make up test dates are established within the window.
International Baccalaureate Testing involves daytime testing windows that occur during school days and may extend into evening hours. There are two IB Testing windows that may conflict with many MHSAA tournament events: Oct. 26-Nov. 13, 2020 and April 29-May 21, 2021. Fall IB testing may conflict with daytime events such as LP XC Regionals and LP Girls Swimming & Diving Regionals. Spring IB testing may conflict with LP Track & Field Regionals and LP Girls Tennis Regionals.
