14 Starting a Test A test session MUST be started before any students can log in to TestNav and begin the test.

18 Unique Situations Newly enrolled LEP student:
If LEP from another Texas school they are LEP If newly enrolled, student is not LEP until the LPAC has been held A student that enrolls during the reading window must be registered in TAMS with the school and added to the test session. Contact Testing Department to confirm that the student needs to test Students that un-enroll during the window, that have not tested, must be removed from the test session and unregistered for the test

19 Security and Confidentiality
Account for all secure materials before, during, and after each test administration (including Student Authorizations) Protect the contents of all tests booklets and student answer documents (including writing samples) No person may view, reveal, or discuss the contents of a test or answer document unless specifically instructed to do so by the procedures in the test administrator manuals and the bottom portion of the oath has been signed No collaboration allowed during online calibration sets

20 Secure TELPAS Information
Content of the online reading test is secure and confidentiality must be maintained Student Authorization Letters are to be kept secure All student data in the TELPAS system or entered into the system is confidential Passwords and user IDs are secure and should be kept confidential. DO NOT SHARE!

21 Testing Irregularities
Incidents resulting in a deviation from documented testing procedures are defined as testing irregularities Procedural Examples Serious Examples Improper accounting for secure materials Directly or indirectly assisting students with responses to test questions Eligibility Error Tampering with student responses Monitoring Error Viewing secure content IEP Implementation Issue Discussing test content, student responses or student performance Procedural Error Formally or informally scoring student tests Duplicating or recording test content

22 What is NOT active monitoring?
Monitoring during test administrations is the responsibility of the test administrator, the campus test coordinator and administrators. What is NOT active monitoring? Anything that takes the test administrator’s attention away from the students during testing. Examples include: Working on the computer or checking Reading a book, magazine, or newspaper Grading papers or working on lesson plans Leaving the room without a trained test administrator in the room Leaving students unattended during meals or breaks

23 Reduce the risk of having an irregularity! After test administration
No unauthorized viewing (only TEA may permit) No scoring of student responses Shred Student Authorization forms (ASAP) No discussion of confidential student information No erasing stray marks or darkening response ovals No copying of students answer documents Account for all test materials No opening answer documents to view answers

24 Pitfalls to Avoid: Assigning a student the incorrect assessment or student authorization form Failing to give appropriate accommodation(s) Improper (or nonexistent) monitoring Leaving secure materials unattended (to include Student Authorizations) Stopping an on-line session prior to removing absent students (don’t stop the session unless instructed to do by the CTC.
