Beginning with the 2012-2013 school year, all reading and writing COEs will need to be submitted using the online COE system unless the district has an approved exemption. For more information about the online COE, see the Submitting Your COE
section of this website.
As of the 2012-2013 school year, the number of samples required in a reading collection has changed. Students are now expected to submit no fewer than 6 and no more than 8 work samples. For more information about content guidelines and sufficiency requirements, see the Reading and Writing Questions and Answers.
Tasks and passages that have been retired from the COE site may be used for classroom practice. To request a CD of practice tasks and passages, send a request to Amanda Mount at OSPI, firstname.lastname@example.org
and request the COE Practice Tasks/Prompts CD.
