4 Florida Item Bank and Test Platform (IBTP) IBTP Demo Create Items and Administer Tests 4

5 Learning Goals At the end of this webinar, you will understand how to: Navigate in the IBTP Create and search for items, rubrics, and passages Submit items for review and approval Create and schedule assessments Administer assessments Enter scores for open response items Scan answer sheets Upload external assessment results View assessment results 5

6 Project Overview The Florida Item Bank and Test Platform (IBTP) provides districts with a resource for the development of diagnostic, interim, and summative assessments. All items have been developed to align with the new Florida Standards for K-12 in ELA, mathematics, science, social studies, and Spanish, plus hard-to-measure courses such as Chorus or PE. The IBTP allows districts, schools, and teachers to write items, search for items in the bank, create, administer and score tests, and develop reports from results in a variety of ways. Assessment items developed as part of this project will be stored in the IBTP. More than 800 Florida educators have contributed to its development as item writers and item reviewers. 6

7 Preparing for Online Assessments Before creating and administering online assessments: Discuss and follow your district’s test and item naming conventions. Complete the Tech Check to verify that your hardware meets the minimum requirements for online testing. If students are taking assessments using Secure Tester, download Secure Tester on all testing computers. Set up microphones and headsets, if needed. Show students The Student Experience PowerPoint. 7

8 Technical Setup Tasks Ensure that technical staff members at each school complete the following tasks prior to administering online assessments: Confirm that all computers meet hardware and software requirements. Download Secure Tester. Whitelist https://prodsnibtp.fldoe.org in any URL blocking software or web proxies (e.g., iBoss, K9, Check Point, etc.).https://prodsnibtp.fldoe.org Update any firewalls to allow traffic over HTTPS, port 443 (SSL) to and from the production server host (prodsnibtp.fldoe.org). It is best to minimize network activities taking place on other computers during test times (such as streaming videos). 8

9 Preparing the Computer Lab for Online Assessments using A/V When taking World Language tests, students may be required to record their responses in the IBTP using a microphone. Prior to test day, ensure that the default microphone is set up on the test computers. See the job aid “Preparing the Computer Lab for Online Assessments using A/V” for instructions. 9

13 PREPARING TO CREATE AN ASSESSMENT 13

14 Designing the Assessment When building an assessment, consider the following: Purpose of the assessment Type of assessment Overall assessment design Overall time allocated to assessment administration Time considerations for item types DOK levels of individual standards and benchmarks DOK levels of items Consider creating an assessment blueprint and test map to help organize this information. Blueprint and test map templates are available on the training materials page. 14

15 Discuss naming conventions for assessments. For example: Discuss workflow. Assign responsibility for blueprint and test map creation, test creation, scheduling the test, assigning the test, and monitoring the collection of test results. 15 Math Spring 2014 Gr K Form 1 Math Spring 2014 Gr K Form 2 Subject Season Year Grade Test Planning Form 15

16 CREATING AND SCHEDULING AN ASSESSMENT 16

17 Benchmark Assessments In the Florida IBTP: “Benchmark assessments” is a generic term that describes all interim assessments not loaded as standardized tests. Tests are created at the district or school level for the purpose of institution-wide data collection. Teachers may create tests for use in the classroom. Results appear in the School & District Data and Classrooms modules. 17

18 Use Assessment Admin to build tests and monitor the collection of results. View data and report options in the Classrooms and School & District Data modules. Using Assessment Admin 18

19 Ways to Create a Test Express test Manual test 19

20 Creating an Express Test Create a test quickly by selecting the standards to be assessed and letting the system insert aligned items automatically. 20

21 Creating a Test Manually Create a test manually to choose the exact items that will appear on the assessment. As a best practice, use a test map to search for and select test items from the item bank. 21

22 Searching for Test Items When creating a manual test, search for existing items by subject, grade, standard, or course ID. 22

23 Creating a Test Manually 23

24 DEMONSTRATION OF THE PROCESS 24

25 Creating Test Items Use existing items from the item bank or create new items in Item Central. 25

26 Item Types Use Item Central to create different types of items. 26

27 Naming Test Items When creating a new item, enter a Unique Identification Number (UIN) in the Name field. Follow your district’s naming convention. Note: See the “Naming Conventions” job aid for a suggested item-naming convention. 27

28 Test Item Tips When inserting images: Use PDF, PNG, GIF, or JPG file formats. Do not use images that exceed 2MB. Limit the size to 250KB or less for peak performance. Do not exceed dimensions of 640 x 640 pixels. Resize images prior to uploading to IBTP. When inserting audio or video files: Use MP3 audio files, up to 4MB. Use MP4 video files, up to 10MB. When inserting reference sheets: Use PDF, PNG, GIF, or JPG file formats, up to 1MB. When inserting exemplars in Open Response items: Use PDF, image, or Word files, up to 4MB. 28

29 Submitting a Test Item Test item creators (both administrators and teachers) who know how to create an item in the IBTP may submit it for review and approval in order to share it. Administrators may: Submit a test item during the creation process. Submit a test item after the creation process. If administrators have permission to save directly to the school level, the items will be found under the school name instead of under the filter “Created by = Me.” 29

30 Locating and Creating Passages and Rubrics Use existing passages and rubrics from the item bank or create new ones in Item Central. 30

41 Printing Student Usernames and Passwords Increase the font size in Excel. 41

42 Printing Test Instructions Prior to the test administration date, sign in to the IBTP to review the test instructions and to print the teacher and/or scoring instructions. Note: All instructions are visible only if they have been added during the test creation process. 42

53 Scanning Answer Sheets Use ScanIt to scan student test answer sheets. ScanIt is IBTP’s scanning software and management application. Use the Assessment Admin module to create answer sheets and print them on your local printer. Note: See the “Scanning Answer Sheets” job aid for instructions on how to scan answer sheets. 53

54 Uploading External Assessment Results Use the IBTP to report on assessments that were administered outside of the system. Before uploading the results, build the actual test in the IBTP, either as an answer key only (AKO) test or as a complete test with question content. Once the test is created, upload the file to add the results. Teachers can perform these tasks for the students and sections assigned to them. Users who want to perform these tasks for a school- or district- wide assessment need the user permissions to create and schedule tests at the school or district level. Note: See the “Uploading External Assessment Results” job aid. 54
