Site Coordinators’ Responsibilities #1 Responsibility—Security No unauthorized electronic devices used in classroom during testing (NO CELL PHONES) For testing purposes, any electronic device that is not specifically designated as an accommodation or modification in the student’s IEP or Section 504 plan is unauthorized.
Test Security Security Affidavits NEW!! ANYONE with direct contact with materials must sign one Sign & place in envelope today Return in envelope to District at the end of CAASPP testing ALL materials must be kept SECURE… no review of test items… secure destruction of any materials that result from testing. Visit from state auditors (before, during, or after testing)
Security ONGOING FOCUS No unauthorized electronic devices are being used. 400 instances of test item posting to social media sites last year (after security emphasis began)
Securing Student Information SSIDs and Student Info are Confidential Must be securely destroyed May not be communicated over Mishandling is a violation of State and Federal Law including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act School Sites May: Collect and secure log-on cards to be handed out each day to students
Site Coordinators Train Examiners: (A few obvious reminders) Test Administrators CANNOT: Review test questions before, during, or after testing. Check students’ answers including (but not limited to): 1. Advise students of wrong answer or to check an answer; or 2. Halt a student from continuing their test until they demonstrate that they have the right answers.
What is a Testing Impropriety? Disruptions Fire alarmsPower outagesEvacuations Test Administration Errors Not following testing schedule Not collecting/ accounting for STAR tests before dismissing Formerly Called ‘Incidents’
What is a Testing Irregularity? Assisting students during testing Leaving informational materials on the wall Allowing students to use books, calculators, tables, etc. Coaching Students Guiding students in marking correct answersDiscussing questions with students during test Inappropriate Test Preparation Reviewing test questionsProviding instruction related to test Student Cheating Discussing testsCopying tests Irregularities affect the results of a testing administration
What is a Testing Breach? Saving / Reviewing Test Items Taking Screenshots and SavingCopying questions with paper and pencil Inappropriate Handling of Materials Failure to destroy printed test itemsPrinting to public, non-secure printer Social Media Posting Posting ItemsPosting Passages Breaches affect the security of the test
Section 2 Testing Timeline and Schedules
Examples of Field Test Participation in California Example: Elementary School X − Grade 3 was assigned a single content area (ELA), which includes an ELA performance task (PT). − Grade 4 was assigned both ELA and math, with a mathematics PT. − Grade 5 was assigned both ELA and math, with an ELA PT.
Field Test Format The Field Test is computer-based, not computer adaptive. Need to try out the test questions during the Field Test before tests can be made adaptive for the first operational administration in Two components: Performance task (PT) A set of complex questions that is centered on a common theme or problem; requires classroom activity Non–performance task (non-PT) E.g., Selected Response, Drag and Drop, Matching Tables
Testing Times (p. 35 and 36) 95% of students
Reminders… NEVER begin a part that cannot be completed in one sitting Students may NOT go back to previous segments of test after they end the segment

Field Test Administration Section 7
Establishing Appropriate Testing Conditions Testing students in classroom-sized groups is preferable. Reduces test fear and anxiety Facilitates monitoring and control for TAs Administer in a room that does not crowd students. Room should have good lighting, ventilation, and freedom from noise and interruptions. Displayed information (on bulletin boards, chalkboards, or dry-erase boards, etc.) that might be used by students to help answer questions must be removed or covered, including: Rubrics, vocabulary charts, student work, posters, graphs, charts, etc.
Establishing Appropriate Testing Conditions (cont.) Cell phones or other electronic devices are not allowed to be used during testing (i.e., turned off and put away). Place a “ TESTING—DO NOT DISTURB ” sign on the door. Post an “Unauthorized Electronic Devices May Not Be Used at Any Time During the Testing Session” sign so that it is clearly visible to all students. May also be helpful to post signs in halls and entrances rerouting hallway traffic.
Establishing Appropriate Testing Conditions (cont.) Make appropriate seating arrangements prior to test administration. Students should be seated so that they cannot view the answers of others**** to the best extent possible****. Establish procedures to maintain a quiet testing environment throughout the test session. Remember that some students will finish more quickly than others. A student may read a book following the completion of testing – Field Test Manual
General Rules During the Field Test Students must answer all test items on a page before moving on to the next page. Students may not return to a test segment once it has been completed and submitted. Students must answer all test items before the test can be submitted. Students may not return to a test once it has been completed and submitted. There is a difference between “segment” and “session.” Expiration and pause rules vary between PT and non-PT.
Test Administrator Interface TAs need to use the interface to administer a test session. The Test Administrator User Guide will be available on the California Smarter Balanced portal under Field Test > Resources and Documentation. This document will contain complete instructions on how to complete tasks in the Test Delivery System (TDS). Reminder: The easiest way to reach the California Smarter Balanced Portal is by visiting and selecting the portal button.
Accessing the Test Administrator Interface On the California Smarter Balanced Portal, select [ Field Tests ] on the left-hand side of the page. The TA Interface button will be available to select.

Monitoring Student Progress The “Students in Your Test Session” table displays students who have logged in and been approved for testing.
Pausing Tests Through the TA Interface, TAs may: – Stop an entire session; or – Pause individual student tests. Users should exit or log out of the Test Administrator Interface only after stopping the test session. If there is a technical issue (i.e. power outage or network failure), students will be logged out and the test will automatically be paused. Regardless of when or how users log out or navigate away from the Test Administrator Interface, student data will NOT be lost. Note: If a test is paused for any reason or length of time, the student must log in again to resume testing. Highlighted text and item notes will not be preserved.
Pause Rules During the Field Test: Non– Performance Task During the non-PT test, if testing is paused for more than 20 minutes, the student is: − Presented with the test page containing the test item he or she was last working on (if page contains at least 1 unanswered item) OR − Presented with the next test page (if all items on the previous test page were answered); − NOT permitted to review or change any test items on previous test pages.
Pause Rules During the Field Test: Performance Task There is no pause rule for the performance task. − Even if a test is paused for 20 minutes or more, the student can return to the current section and continue. ELA PTs are divided into 2 parts. After a student completes Part 1, he or she cannot return to it.
Test Timeout Due to Inactivity As a security measure, students are automatically logged out of the test after 20 minutes of inactivity. Activity means: − Selecting an answer − Using a navigation option in the test (i.e. selecting [ Next ] or [ Back ], using the Past/Marked Questions drop-down list) − NOTE: Moving the mouse or selecting an empty space on the screen is NOT considered activity.

Ending the Test
Classroom Activity Administration Guidelines Classroom Activity Purpose: To provide students with important context, concepts, and key terms prior to taking the PT. All students will have a classroom activity before they complete a PT in the assigned content area. May be administered in a classroom or any other appropriate space. Takes place on a separate day from the PT. Recommended: One day prior to PT administration. TA may need a chalkboard or dry-erase board.
Classroom Activity Administration Guidelines (cont.) Computers, projectors, and other technology are allowed but not required for the classroom activity. Involves the participation of all students in an instructional task. PT will be completed by individual students in the computer-based test delivery system. Students may take notes during the classroom activity, but the notes must be collected before proceeding to the PT.
Classroom Activity Administration Guidelines (cont.) Designed to fit into a 30-minute window. Will vary due to complexity of topic and individual student needs. After receiving the activity from the SC, the TA or classroom teacher should administer the classroom activity. Provide the appropriate accommodations for students who normally use them during instruction.
Classroom Activity and Performance Task Administration (SCs) Step 1: Download the classroom activity. Materials will be provided 1-2 days prior to the classroom activity. (TAs) Step 2: Review the teacher directions for the classroom activity carefully.
Classroom Activity and Performance Task Administration (TAs) Step 3: Complete the classroom activity. SCs should ensure that the TA has presented the classroom activity prior to PT administration. Classroom activities include directions associated with that specific classroom activity. Note: The classroom activity does not require computers.
Classroom Activity and Performance Task Administration (TAs) Step 4: Administer the make-up classroom activity. For students who are absent on the day of the classroom activity, it is recommended that a make- up session be scheduled. Teacher may want to record or videotape the activity to show to students who are absent.
Classroom Activity and Performance Task Administration Step 5. Administer the performance task. The students must work independently The PT is administered online ELA PT: 2 parts (Part 1 and Part 2) Recommended: Each part administered on separate days. Part 1: Students will read sources and answer three research questions. Part 2 (full write): Students will provide a written response using those sources. Mathematics PT: 1 part The mathematics PT should be administered in 1 session.
