Public school employees are expected to know and comply with procedures, established by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Securing Testing Environment  Media should not be on campus  Post Testing – Do Not Disturb signs  Electronic devices are turned off and out of reach (students should not use electronics during testing and/or breaks)  Backpacks, bags, and purses out of reach Staff are to follow district policy on use of cell phones during testing and breaks.

8 We can re-read test directions (NOT test questions) aloud for any test as many times as students need. If a student asks for help on a question, we can suggest: Read the question quietly, out loud to yourself. Use your pencil to underline key words in the test question. Think about what the question is asking you to do. At the beginning of the test we can remind students to complete all questions. When they begin to turn in their booklets, we can reread the direction to the class, “…Make sure there are no unanswered questions on any page.” For the Writing test: We can define single words in the writing prompt (task) in a way that ensures students understand. We can define any words or phrases on the Writing checklist, as long as we don’t hint or imply how students should write their response. We read the prompt from a student test book, only at the beginning of each test session. 8 What is allowed during test administration? Smile and make eye contact whenever possible!

9 Directions and Proctoring Actively monitor. Ensure that students are:  Using #2 pencils (the scanner may not be able to read responses with other lead types, which could affect the student's score)  Using only an approved calculator  Not sharing their work  Not using unauthorized tools or electronic devices  Not writing on the ½ inch outer edge of the booklet Notice if students:  Are in need of an extra break  Need help navigating the assessment Slide 9

10 Slide 10 Assessment Options Retake Opportunities:  HSPE in August, DAPE in November, EOC Math/Science in January  Also available to students who want to improve scores Special Education Alternate Options:  Basic - meet standard at level 2 is available to all grades  WAAS-Portfolio–available to all grades  WAAS-DAPE–meet standard on ES or MS level - grades 11-12 only  Locally-Determined Assessment (LDA)–grade 12 only English Language Learners (ELL) - Students who qualify for English Language Development (ELD) services:  Students may be tested with access supports and/or accommodations, when documentation is included in the student record.

11 Participation and Room Scheduling Extended-time location [Add your notes here] Extended testing time:  If students are moving to a different testing location, a trained staff member must transport the test booklets and any ancillary papers, calculators, and/or manipulatives. Who will test where? Slide 11

12 Attendance Procedures [Add your notes here] Students arriving late can test if:  There is enough time to finish the assessment,  they have not had access or knowledge about testing materials, and  reading directions will not disturb others. Slide 12

13 Break Procedures  Close test booklets  Instruct students not to discuss the test  Students are monitored by staff  Bathroom break – one student at a time  Ensure students do not have access to cell phones [Add your staff break information here] [Add the emergency contact number/plan should a proctor need help during the assessment] Slide 13 HSPE/ DAPE DFA 17

14 Slide 14 Testing Schedules Uniform administration of state assessments ensures that no one student has an unfair advantage over any other student:  Allow an additional 15 to 20 minutes for test proctor activities.  Breaks are not included in the timeframes below, follow breaks as outlined in the DFA.  Assessments are untimed but must be finished in the day in which it was started, unless specified in IEP or 504 plan for more than one day for a test session.

15 Slide 15 Tools and Manipulatives In order to ensure consistent, reliable administration of assessments across the state, OSPI has compiled a chart of tools and manipulatives that students may access during the assessments. Manipulatives that are used during state assessments should not provide answers but should be:  Used in the classroom – this should not be the first time students see them.  Available where students can get them if they elect to use them Manipulatives or tools not included in the chart from the DFA should be considered not permitted. (Requests for Exceptional Situations [i.e., to request the use of a non-standard accommodation not listed in the Guidelines] should be submitted through your SAC) You must read and understand the tools and manipulatives section in the DFA, and the Calculator and Electronic Device Policy for each state assessment.

Continue testing whenever possible.  Report to your SAC immediately regarding any irregularity.  When instructed by the SAC, document the irregularity on the front cover of test booklets in the “Notes: Proctor/Coordinator” box.  Record the events and provide the SAC with specific details of what transpired. The SAC is responsible for:  Completing an irregularity report and mark the booklet “Y” when required.  Annotating the irregularity on the iin “Comments” section. Never invalidate a test booklet.
