1 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS Test Settings in TOMS 1 – 2 p.m. December 18, 2014 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

2 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS 2 Agenda Overview One by One Process in the User Interface File Upload Process Live Demonstration Questions

3 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS 3 Purpose To instruct local educational agency (LEA) CAASPP Coordinators on how to set embedded and non-embedded designated supports and accommodations for students in the Test Operations Management System (TOMS).

4 Overview

5 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS 5 Overview Q: Why do I need to set online test settings for students in TOMS? A: To ensure students receive the assigned accessibility supports for the online Smarter Balanced assessments.

6 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS 6 Overview Q: Who can set online test settings for students in TOMS? A: LEA CAASPP Coordinators and Test Site Coordinators (SCs) have the authorization to configure online test settings in TOMS. Please note that LEAs may designate the number of SCs needed to meet their needs.

7 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS 7 Overview Q: Which embedded and non-embedded designated supports and accommodations can I configure for students in TOMS? A: All embedded and non-embedded designated supports and accommodations may be assigned and activated through TOMS except the following, which must be activated through the test delivery system: Turning off a universal tool Stacked translations

8 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS 8 Overview A: *Must be activated in the test delivery system. **Print on demand for stimuli only can be activated in TOMS. If a student(s) need print on demand for items and/or items and stimuli, contact the CDE.

9 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS 9 Overview Q: Where can I get more information about designated supports and accommodations? A: Refer to the CAASPP Matrix One for available accessibility supports and the Smarter Balanced Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines for details on recommended uses of the supports. In addition, the CAASPP Individual Student Assessment Accessibility Profile (ISAAP) Tool may be used to facilitate selection of the accessibility supports to match student access need for Smarter Balanced assessments.CAASPP Matrix OneSmarter Balanced Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines

10 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS 10 Overview Q: What is the CAASPP ISAAP Tool? A: The CAASPP ISAAP Tool is an Excel workbook with specially designed formulas; the tool facilitates selection of the designated supports and accommodations that match students’ access needs for the Smarter Balanced assessments. The CAASPP ISAAP Tool can also be used to produce the online student test settings file that can be uploaded to TOMS.

11 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS 11 Overview Q: Where can I get more information on the CAASPP ISAAP Tool? A:A tutorial of the CAASPP ISAAP Tool as well as the actual tool will be made available later this month.

12 Configuring Online Student Test Settings in TOMS 12 Overview Q: How can I configure online test settings for students in TOMS? A: There are two options to set designated supports and accommodations in TOMS: 1.One by one manual configuration in the user interface 2.File upload −Use the online student test settings template −Use the CAASPP ISAAP Tool to create an upload file
