STILLWATER, Okla. — Stillwater Middle School is seeking testing monitors for the upcoming Oklahoma Core Curriculum Test.

Six volunteer monitors are needed for the morning session (8 to 11:30 a.m.) and six for the afternoon session (11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.).

The testing will begin April 10 and end May 1 at the middle school.

The middle school has approximately 820 students who will be taking the state test for sixth- and seventh-graders. Students will be tested in math, reading and world studies.

“All of the monitors have to go through a one-hour training,” said Sonya Herndon, a secretary at the middle school.

Herndon said monitors will be instructed on testing procedures, how to communicate during an emergency and how to accommodate students who haven’t finished the test in the allotted time.

Training sessions will be held at the middle school on Tuesday at 7:30 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Training sessions also will be held Thursday at 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Monitors who are unable to attend the training should make arrangements with the middle school to set up an alternate training session.

Anyone wanting to volunteer to be a test monitor, or for more information, should contact Herndon at 707-5418.
