In the samples, each district’s base school calendar was used to determine instructional days. Using the instructional days data, time frames for beginning-of-year tests, middle-of-year tests, and end-of-year tests were established. The centers of these time frames were roughly 20 days, 80 days, and 130 days from the beginning of the academic year of the student’s school for the fall, winter and spring terms, respectively.
