The West Virginia Department of Education encourages all districts to utilize Form B in the 2020-2021 school year for the beginning and end of the year PALS assessments. While some districts may have used Form B during the 2019-2020 school year, the WVDE still encourages Form B again this year, because many students did not take the end of the year PALS assessment during the 2019-2020 school year due to the school closure.

Administrators may choose to preset the form (A or B) for the entire district to make sure all teachers are using the same form.  For PALS-PreK, this is not necessary because it has only one form.
