ISAT-Alt and I-PASS (Individual Portfolio Artifact Submission System) Idahos GSEG GRANT IMPLEMENTATION Utilized Federal Department of Education grant funds The ISAT-Alt was developed in response to a federal peer review First in Nation Digital ePortfolio for Alternate Assessment Behavior Imaging Solutions in Boise Idaho – Co-created I-PASS w SDE IT and Assessment Divisions Internet Based HEPPA and FERPA secure data management Teachers upload - Video, Digital Photo, Scanned, Faxed & Saved student evidence of learning of the extended content objectives assessed. I-PASS ePortfolios-Customized Students Assessment Needs – Content Area Folders - Evidence of Learning (ECO) Extended Content Area Objectives ISAT-Alt Submission, Rangefinding, Scoring and Standards Setting accomplished online I-PASS Media Gallery and libraries contain classroom data, assessment materials, as well as online training videos Developed during the Summer and Fall of 2009 culminating with the launch of I-PASS upload of ISAT-Alt artifacts during May and June of 2010.
Robust Technology Implementation Alternate Assessment 4 Components 1. Online Alternate Assessment Learning Community Idaho Training Clearinghouse is the host. Includes; Announcements, Forms, Guidelines, FAQ, Webinar, Podcast, ISAT-Alt Manual, I-PASS Quick guide 2. ISAT-Alt ePortfolio Online - I-PASS 3. Online Field Review – Survey Monkey, excel data driven decisions and revisions based upon field surveys 4. Digital Data Collection – Excel for Accommodations & an Excel Data Collection Sheet for a uniform baseline http://itcnew.idahotc.com/dnn/alternate-assessment.aspx
Enhanced Student Data Management Capacity Improved Handles Large Volumes of Data – Eliminated the alternative which was the submission of 6,000 paper based content area portfolios saving on shipping, handling and contracted scoring. Digital Process Eliminates Paper Administrative Monitoring of all processes – custom permission levels for Admins (local, district and state) Improved Secure Online Individual, District and State Reporting – $$ & Time Savings –Reduced Costs of Alternate Assessment by at least 1/2 Rangefinding – Snapshot – 400 Pieces of Evidence Scored in 3 hours! Scoring – Snapshot – More than 142,000 artifacts scored online by Idaho educators!
Former IAA – Rating Scale Teacher Checklists No Student Evidence Submitted Teacher Scored Reading and Mathematics Only No Science

ISAT-Alt Manual Chapter One ISAT-Alt Guidelines and Procedures Page 7 Overview of the ISAT- Alt Idaho State Department of Education and the State Board of Education Single Statewide Assessment System for all Idaho public schools and all students Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 1997 (IDEA-97) - mandated that every student with a disability participates in statewide and local assessments with or without accommodations or on an alternate assessment. No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) - requires statewide assessment of all students in grades 3-8 and at least one high school grade annually in: Reading, Language Usage, and Mathematics. The ISAT and ISAT-Alt grades 3-10 in Mathematics, Reading and Language Usage grades 5, 7, and 10 Science

Content Standards – The Foundation of Assessment Page 16 Idaho Extended Content Standards - grade-level specific - clear link to general education curriculum (i.e., the Idaho Content Standards) Links academic instruction and learning to grade level content through extended standards Content reduced in complexity or modified through the extended content standards Based on grade-level academic skills Achievement standards (Standards Assessed) reflect different expectation for proficiency Combination of extended grade-level content standards and alternate achievement standards Promotes access to general education curriculum Based on individual learning needs and capabilities
How to Read the Asssessed Extended Content Standard Tables Pages 16 & 17 Reading Example
Who Administers the ISAT-Alt and Collects the Assessment Artifacts? Page 19 Assessment Task Administrators Include; General education teacher - teaching content Special education teacher - teaching content Speech and Language Pathologist - using content Paraprofessional - under the supervision of a certified teacher Note – Paraprofessionals may also assist by uploading the data into I-PASS through assigned temporary password.
ISAT-Alt Summary of Elements & Portfolio Contents Pages 20-22
Items NOT Scoreable or Acceptable as Artifacts for Submission Page 22 Items NOT Scoreable or Acceptable as Artifacts for Submission: Evidence (Artifacts) (data sheets, documents, video or photos) that have any visible identifying information such as student first and last name, school, or school district) Checklists (except for sight words) Data sheets (except for sight words) Single photograph of the student performing the work on the objective without evidence of student work or description of the task. Narrative descriptions of the student demonstrating the objective without actual evidence of student work Any entry that does not contain all of the required components and data Blank sheet of paper Statement student is unable to perform the task
Scoring of Portfolios Accuracy Page 23 Each entry in the students portfolio will be scored on three dimensions: Level of Accuracy Level of Independence Level of Complexity A summary of the levels for each scoring dimension is shown on the next slides.
Scoring process starts at the teacher level. Two entries for each assessed objective. Teacher provides scores on each dimension for each entry in the portfolio including; Complexity, Independence & Accuracy. Teacher scores are entered into I-PASS via drop down menus. Final scores are assigned to portfolio online by 2 trained scorers. If 2 scores are within one point (adjacent) scores are recorded. If 2 scores vary by more than one point portfolio is directed to a third scorer. I-PASS system records the highest of the 2 scored entries as the final score Scoring Continued
Accommodations Page 25 IEP Team Decision – Use Accommodations Guidelines Excel found online on ITC Accommodations MUST be designated and used in both instruction and prior to assessment (not just on the assessment) Accommodations are NOT consistent across all assessments so should be designated individually for each assessment Assistive Technology – Must be considered annually
Assistive Technology Page 25 According to IDEA regulations, all accommodations necessary to facilitate participation in state mandated assessment must be provided and assistive technology considered during the annual IEP meeting.

Example of Assessment Process Mathematics - Grades 3, 4 & 5 page 33 Assessment Steps Choose Five Items (tasks) One/Objective According to Grade Level & Complexity/Student. Begin by choosing the grade level of the student found on the left side of the rubric. Choose the highest level of complexity possible with the lowest level of supports and highest level of independence. Collect baseline data at the classroom level. Teach the concept. Collect two artifacts per task. (5x2=10 total for Mathematics including; video, 4 digital photos cut and pasted onto a Word doc, scanned or faxed student work) Compress Video prior to submission. Directions found in the I-PASS Quick Guide. Submit into I-PASS by March 1, 2011.
