Screen protectors Manila folders around monitors Test Tickets – Form ID Seat students based on form ID: A1, A2, A3, (B, C, D, E) etc. Mary S. Form A1 Tyler C. Form A2 Brett G. Form A3 Ethan J.

Before Testing – Test Tickets 19 All students submitted through CEDARS by 3/30 will automatically have a test ticket generated for them. Students will need a Test Ticket to access the assessments. (One ticket per assessment.) The students Test Tickets provide all the login information needed to begin the assessment. Proctors must verify they have one Test Ticket for each student and each content area. Students testing multiple content areas online will have multiple tickets.
Before Testing – Test Tickets 20 The Test Tickets are activated once a student logs in with his/her username and password. Once the student completes a test (clicks End Test) the Test Ticket becomes inactive. Once a test session has been started, the test session must be completed in the same day unless extra time is provided on the students IEP or Section 504 Plan. Test Tickets are secure testing materials. Tickets must be distributed, collected and accounted for, while in the testing area (computer lab, classroom) only.
During Testing – Student Directions 25 Proctors will read the online directions with the students prior to each administration. Directions include sample items (similar to paper/pencil directions) Reminder to students how to respond to different item types All Proctor-led text is in the DFA errata Proctors may provide assistance with logging into the test only.
During Testing – Additional Testing Time 26 Coordinate with the School Assessment Coordinator to create a plan for accommodating students requiring additional testing time to complete the online assessment. Following are some examples: If the testing room/computer lab will remain available instruct those students who need additional time to use the Pause function. Excuse all students who have completed their tests; the other students may then resume the test session. Or, If the testing room/computer lab is not available and the student needs to be moved instruct those students who need more time to Pause and Exit their test. Excuse all students who have completed their tests. The students requiring additional time will need to have their Test Ticket and all other materials moved to another location by a staff member. If the student leaves the test via this method, the original test ticket will work on the same day of initial testing as well as any day after. Or, At any time, if the student exits the test via the End Test button, the Test Ticket will have to be reset.
During Testing Security 27 Cell phones, iPods ®, pagers and any other communication devices must be turned off and kept out-of-view and out-of-reach during testing sessions. Pause Function/Inactivity Students will have to re-login if they are on Pause or show no activity for more than 20 minutes. If it is less than 20 minutes they only need to click Resume. Upon re-logging in the original Test Ticket can be used. All testing irregularities must be reported to the School Assessment Coordinator who will complete a Testing Irregularity Report and make the necessary coding in eDIRECT. Resetting a Test Ticket: If a students test needs to be reset, the School Assessment Coordinator must be contacted.
During Testing – Technical Issues 28 SAC should communicate the plan for dealing with technical issues during testing Who do you contact? SAC, Tech Coordinator? What information will they need? Common Issue A student receives an error message Connection to server failed. Please contact an administrator. This is an issue with the schools internet connection or the firewall. Contact your Tech Coordinator.
During Testing – Monitor Testing 29 Student Status Spreadsheet Use report to verify all students have tested. Students who move or test via paper/pencil do not need any further coding in eDIRECT.
After Testing Checklist 31 Secure materials Collect all materials from students immediately after completion of testing. Account for all Test Tickets, Glossary of non-mathematics (science) terms, Mathematics Formula Sheets, graph paper and scratch paper provided during the assessment. Work with your SAC for procedures for your district. Complete and submit Test Security Assessment Form to the School Assessment Coordinator.
