17 2012 Procedural Errors  A test administrator failed to issue the correct materials, or students were provided nonallowable materials.  Teachers shared answers to the online calibration activities or practice rating activities in the online training courses.  Testing personnel who were not properly trained were allowed to rate students or administer tests.  A test administrator failed to use the test administrator manual or failed to read aloud the bolded test administration directions as outlined in the manual.  A test administrator failed to remove or cover all instructional displays that might aid students by providing direct answers during testing.  A TELPAS writing collection was not submitted in accordance with required assembly criteria.  A test administrator failed to provide a student with the correct student authorization to access the TELPAS reading test.
