Keystone Test Window Extension


The current surge of COVID-19 cases is creating numerous logistical challenges for schools including the administration of the Winter Keystone Exams. To provide additional time for schools to administer these exams, PDE is extending the 2021-2022 Winter Keystone Exam testing window by three weeks.

All materials should now be inventoried and shipped for return by February 4, 2022. Test Administrators may use the additional time as needed and do not need to submit an extension request to the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) or DRC.

Questions regarding this extension may be directed to the PDE Division of Assessment and Accountability at
