Pennsylvania State Test Administration Training (PSTAT)

Pennsylvania State Test Administration Training (PSTAT) is designed specifically to provide consistent, current, and relevant training to test administrators across the state so that they can successfully and responsibly administer PSSA and/or Keystone Exams in their school or district. 

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), Bureau of Curriculum, Assessment & Instruction, Division of Instructional Quality, must ensure responsible and secure administration of state tests in K-12 schools across the state.  Test administration standards must be maintained at the highest level in order for fair, valid, and reliable results on the state tests. Emphasis must be placed on responsible measures in test security and administration consistent across the state to ensure these results. To this end, the department has designed this site and associated training to assist LEA's to proactively plan for and responsibly administer state tests. 

This site and the training provided were developed and are maintained by the Bureau of Curriculum, Assessment & Instruction, Division of Instructional Quality. For further information about training for test administration or state tests, please contact the Division of Instructional Quality at the contact information provided on this site.
