Test Administration & Security #2 Pencils only (use appropriate pencils) Follow directions for 1 st day of testing in the DFA: Ensures student has correct documents Ensures students write their name on the documents Ensures coding of test version and math and science tests taken DO NOT write students names in the space where the label goes. RULES AND RESTRICTIONS 28

29 Test Administration & Security All tests are untimed. Time estimates in Appendix J (pg. 105 – 109 in manual) Test parts MUST be completed in one sitting unless specified by an IEP or 504 plan. Examiners shall ensure there is enough time to complete a part before beginning the part 10 minute break between test parts if taken back to back. Test parts must be taken in order. MUST follow the DFAs exactly as written 29 RULES AND RESTRICTIONS

30 Students not testing may not stay in the classroom where a test is being administered must be If students need to be taken to another room to finish testing, they must be escorted by an adult. Do not allow students to walk to another room with test materials by themselves. Examiners are expected to actively monitor students during testing to make sure students are: On the correct part of the test Do not go on to other parts or back to a previously completed part Do not skip a question on their answer document (so that they are off by one or more) 30 RULES AND RESTRICTIONS

31 Directions may be clarified, but test questions MAY NOT BE. Test examiners may not discuss any part of the test with anyone. Test examiners may not assist with or coach the students during the exam. Be encouraging, but not informative. No copies may be made of any parts of the tests or the secure DFAs. Test examiners may not read prompts or passages unless specified by an IEP or 504 plan. CST ELA multiple choice passages read aloud – is a modification CMA ELA multiple choice passages read aloud – is Not Allowed Testing strategies may not be discussed with students during the test administration. Make sure all tests have been accounted for before allowing children to leave the classroom. 31 RULES AND RESTRICTIONS

32 Erasures and Analyses - Erasures will be heavily monitored this year. Staff may not erase stray marks on answer documents unless directly supervised by the site coordinator or principal. Examiner must not erase ANYHING in answer circles. Only students may erase in bubbles Avoid teaching students in second and third grade to mark through answer circles to eliminate answers. Such marks MAY NOT be erased by adults 32 RULES AND RESTRICTIONS

33 Two students were given each others pre-IDs tests and complete part 1 of ELA. What would you do? A student started bubbling in on the CMA portion of the answer document. What would you do? A student goes on to part 2 during the administration of part 1. What would you do? After the answer documents were returned to the coordinator, it was noticed that the students did not write their names on their test books or answer documents. 33 TESTING SCENARIOS

34 Can simply be avoided by: Keeping all materials secure Following all instructions in the DFA Adhering to regulations outlined on the security affidavits Correctly marking tests taken Monitoring classrooms during testing #1 ResponsibilitySecurity No unauthorized electronic devices used in classroom during testing For testing purposes, any electronic device that is not specifically designated as an accommodation or modification in the students IEP or Section 504 plan is unauthorized. MONITORING 34

35 Testing Irregularities – Circumstances that compromise the reliability and validity of test results If more than 5 % of students tested will affect API and AYP Testing Incident – occurs before, during or after test administration that does not conform to instructions stated in DFA (ex: disruption, cheating) Any testing incidents or irregularities must be reported to Dawna immediately. Call or me with the situation. Items that must be reported are described in pages of the Coordinators Manual 35 INCIDENTS AND IRREGULARITIES See page 79 – 81 and 82, 83 (Forms) in Test Coordinators Manual

36 SECURITY AUDITS 36 At randomly selected schools and district offices Before, during, or after testing What are they looking for: Are materials secure, accounted for, and locked up when not in use? Are correct administrative procedures being followed? For example Example: Instructional materials have been removed or covered. Example: Students are not being coached through the exams. Only appropriate accommodations and/or modifications are being provided, et. al. No unauthorized electronic devices are being used.

68 Keep track of absent students After testing return all test items to the District STAR Coordinator: Used scratch paper All secure DFAs All Test booklets All Answer documents All test administration errors or irregularities must be reported immediately to Melissa Neuburger (directions in binder) During Testing 68

69 Have a back-up plan ready in the event that some students need additional time to complete the exam or need breaks (according to IEP or 504 plan) Upon completion of each exam day: Check that all books and answer documents have been returned Verify correct coding of exams for math and science Code accommodations or modifications that were used during testing During Testing 69

70 Six steps to complete 1. Separate scorable from non-scorable documents 2. Inspect and count answer documents 3. Complete forms 4. Organize materials for return 5. Packing materials 6. Ship materials back to Educational Research and Accountability CST, CAPA, STS, CMA After Testing 70

71 Step 1. Separate Scorable from Non-Scorable Scorable materials Grades 2 and 3 test books (including STS & CMA) Grades 4 through 11 answer documents including STS (CST and CMA are together on the answer document for grades 4-7) CAPA answer documents After Testing 71

72 Step 1. (Cont.) Separate Scorable from Non-Scorable Non-scorable materials: examples Pre-id documents for students who moved before your first day of testing (marked Void- moved DFAs and CAPA examiner manuals Unused or voided test booklets for grades 2-3 All test booklets for grades 4-11 Scratch paper Unused answer documents and labels Complete list in the coordinator manual After Testing 72

73 Step 2. Inspecting and counting scorable answer documents Inspect documents for Stray marks in books for grades 2-3, answer docs grades 4-11 Gridding of non-pre-id documents Use of accommodations or modifications Absence reporting Test irregularities (bubbling in section A1) #2 pencil used No tears or tatters on the document Science and math test coding and CMA coding NEVER – erase ANY student responses on answer document. Documents may only be cleaned up under the supervision of the site coordinator. After Testing 73

74 Step 2. (Cont.) Inspecting and counting answer documents Marking answer documents Section A1 – District and CDE use only Sections A2-A4 - follow instructions in the manual (codes on back page of DFA) All sections must be bubbled in on non-pre-id documents on both the front and back sides After Testing 74

75 Step 2. (Cont.) Inspecting and counting answer documents You should count as scorable the CAPA, CST, CMA, and STS answer documents for: Students who took any or all parts of the exam Students who sat for the exam and did nothing Parent exemptions Students absent the entire test window After Testing 75

76 Step 3. Completing Forms SGID (Header sheets) CST/CMA and STS will each have their own for each grade level One alone for CAPA for all grade levels (do NOT mark the grade) One per grade level for grades 2-11 Check data on header sheet Mark the instructional materials used (grades 2-8) on the back of the form Make a copy for your files Paper band documents by grade with the SGID sheet Pack in the correct order – see chart in manual Master File Sheet - place on top of your first bundle of documents in box 1 (keep a copy for your records) After Testing 76

77 Step 4. Organizing Materials for Return Group all scorable documents after verifying counts Scorable Multiple Choice – orange labels See manual for instructions Scorable = answer documents for any student enrolled on your first day of testing Have SGID and master file sheets ready After Testing 77

78 Step 4. (Cont.) Organizing Materials for Return Group and count secure non-scorable documents Count and verify # of DFAs for Grade 2 CST, CMA, STS, and all CAPA examiner manuals received in original orders and supplemental orders Count and verify all test booklets received in original orders and supplemental orders For grades 2 and 3 you will need to add the # of booklets in the scorable materials and the non-scorable materials to make sure they are all accounted for Account for all large print and Braille materials After Testing 78

79 Step 4. (Cont.) Organizing Materials for Return Group all non-secure, non-scorables Follow packing instructions Multiple Choice non-scorable – green labels All grade 3-11 DFAs (have test examiners used them?) Grade 4 through 11 pre-id answer documents and pre-id labels for students who moved before your first day of testing – all marked VOID moved All scratch paper – bundle and mark scratch paper After Testing 79

80 Step 4. (Cont.) Organizing Materials for Return Keep or discard cardstock rulers, science reference sheets, CAPA stimulus cards Used practice tests may be taken home by students After Testing 80

81 Step 5. Box up materials. Follow the charts in the manual and in your binder Put labels on the boxes (see manual) and write in the number of boxes on the lower lines (separate counts for scorable and non- scorable) Step 6. Return ALL materials to our office by the date shown on the Warehouse pick-up schedule: Multiple Choice Administration CST CMA STS CAPA All materials must be to Research by the deadline After Testing 81
