57 Before Testing Train test administrators and site proctors
Acquire security affidavits – keep at site A test administrator must be an employee of the district who has been trained to administer STAR and has signed an affidavit Only certificated or licensed staff who are trained on administering CAPA may be CAPA examiners

58 Before Testing Site Training should include
Train examiners, proctors, and scribes All examiners and proctors review non-secure DFAs prior to testing All items regarding rules and restrictions Where to pick up test materials Preparation of room for testing Pre-id information and coding requirements Coding for math, science, and CMA exams Utilizing exam make-up lists Securing materials and collecting affidavits

59 Before Testing Inventory Test Materials
The Research Office has ordered all materials for sites Ensure all materials have arrived Braille, large print, CAPA, etc. Box 1 of site boxes will have packing information Utilize the packing slip contained in box 1 to verify your order Verify school name on forms is correct If any test materials are incorrect or missing, immediately contact Melissa or Christene in Research at x2205 or x2202

60 Before Testing Site Material Distribution Schedule
Immediately after inventorying materials provide CAPA manuals to examiners if applicable (minimum 5 days before administering the exam). Put teachers’ names on these. DFAs grades 3-11 – provide to examiners up to 10 days prior to testing DFAs grade 2 - give to examiners the day of testing. They must be returned at the end of each test. Put teachers’ names on these. Practice tests should be administered one week prior to the actual test administration (grades 2-4). Used practice tests may be sent home with the student.

61 Before Testing Testing Materials – Handling and Securing
All secure materials must be kept in locked storage unless in use Obtain security affidavits from all test examiners, proctors, and scribes No portions of the exams may be copied No test items may be discussed by anyone Only students may look at test questions

Exam booklets and answer documents may not be taken home After the test, ALL materials must be accounted for Scoring keys for exams may not be developed Follow the Directions for Administration (DFAs) exactly Pay attention to time charts, say boxes, and areas that may be translated Do not read any of the words in the test booklet except 2nd grade and CAPA examiners or as instructed by the DFA Only directions may be clarified. Test questions may not be.

63 Before Testing Review the testing schedule and who will test
Who tests? ALL students enrolled on your first day of testing except Parent exempt (still a scorable document) Students absent the entire test window (still a scorable document) Document why students have not been tested (A2) Students entering your school after the first day of testing who were not tested elsewhere. (Note – the state does not penalize sites for not testing these students, however, the district expects that you test them) Students who took a test at another school may retake the test at the current school if the student was enrolled in the current school on the first day of testing

64 Before Testing Know which students will be taking CAPA and CMA
Identify who has been authorized to use accommodations or modifications during testing and for which exams – make sure test examiners are aware of these Test parts and writing exam must be administered in a single sitting (unless specified by IEP or 504) Test parts must be administered in order A minimum 10 minute break is required between parts and tests

65 Before Testing Testing variations - for all students
Marking in booklets Clarifying directions Small group testing – this is NOT a modification Testing variations - allowed if regularly used in the classroom Testing individual students separately English Learners – see specific list in the matrix Know procedures for Pre-id documents and labels Non-pre-id documents Meet with proctors ahead of time to discuss room set up and how to handle students’ questions Verify rooms are properly set up for testing

66 Before Testing Make sure all materials are ready
Verify correct test and answer documents Make sure answer documents match test booklets (grades 4-11) Do not rearrange random order of test booklets Provide scratch paper and #2 pencils for exams (note: no scratch paper is allowed for the ELA exams) Highlighters are allowed as well Prepare a supervised, secondary testing location for students who will need more time Ensure DFA instructions are reviewed and understood and read exactly as directed Be available to answer questions at your site and actively monitor the testing

67 During Testing Students must: Actively monitor testing
Verify that the answer document and booklet is theirs Mark the version number on their exam Write their names on their test booklet and answer documents Actively monitor testing Students are using a #2 pencil Point out to students if their bubbling of answers is off track or in the wrong area Encourage distracted students to stay on task

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

69 During Testing 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

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

71 After Testing 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

72 After Testing 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

73 After Testing 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.

74 After Testing Section A1 – District and CDE use only
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

75 After Testing 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

76 After Testing 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)

77 After Testing 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

78 After Testing 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

79 After Testing Organizing Materials for Return Step 4. (Cont.)
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”

80 After Testing Step 4. (Cont.) Organizing Materials for Return
