6 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 6 About ISAAP Q:What does ISAAP stand for? A:Individual Student Assessment Accessibility Profile (ISAAP). The ISAAP is a process and a tool developed by Smarter Balanced for use by Consortium states to support a thoughtful and systematic approach in addressing student access needs for the Smarter Balanced interim and summative tests. The ISAAP is optional but recommended.

7 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 7 About the ISAAP Process Q:What is the ISAAP Process? A:The ISAAP Process involves the following seven steps: 1.Select key staff members who will be involved in any of these seven steps and define their specific roles. 2.Provide information and training to staff according to their role; provide information to parents; and provide information and training to students as appropriate. 3.Identify students who may benefit from designated supports (including students with an IEP and Section 504 plan, English learners, and English learners with disabilities).

8 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 8 About the ISAAP Process (cont.) A:The ISAAP Process involves the following seven steps: 4.Select the appropriate designated supports and accommodations for each student. The CAASPP ISAAP Tool can be used to match student need to available supports. 5.Enter designated supports and accommodations into the Test Ordering and Management System (TOMS). 6.Perform a pre-administration check of assigned access supports to verify they are correct. 7.Check for delivery of the assigned designated supports and accommodations at the time of the test.

9 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 9 About the ISAAP Process (cont.) Q: Is the ISAAP Process required? A:No. The ISAAP Process is recommended to provide a consistent approach in ensuring all students receive the accessibility supports they need for CAASPP assessments.

10 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 10 About the ISAAP Tool Q: What is the ISAAP Tool? A: The ISAAP Tool is an Excel workbook with specially designed formulas. The ISAAP tool can be used to: –select the designated supports and accommodations that match student access needs for the Smarter Balanced assessments. –produce the online student test settings file that can be uploaded to the Test Operations Management System (TOMS).

11 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 11 About the ISAAP Tool Q:Is the use of the ISAAP Tool required? A:No. The ISAAP Tool was developed to help school and LEA staff with the selection and activation of designated supports and accommodations for the Smarter Balanced interim and summative assessments.

12 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 12 About the ISAAP Tool Q: Who should use the ISAAP Tool? A: The ISAAP Tool can be used by any staff member(s) who is responsible for selecting student accessibility supports for the Smarter Balanced assessments and for entering the assigned accessibility supports into TOMS.

13 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 13 About the ISAAP Tool Q: What does a user of the ISAAP Tool need to know? A: The person(s) using the ISAAP Tool to select designated supports and accommodations for students should know: –The student’s instructional needs –The purpose and functions of the designated supports and accommodations –The recommended use of the supports and accommodations per the Smarter Balanced Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guideline (UAAG)

14 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 14 About the ISAAP Tool Q:Can the ISAAP Tool be used by Individualized Education Program (IEP) and Section 504 Plan teams? A: Yes. The ISAAP Tool can be used by an IEP or 504 plan team; however the ISAAP Tool does not take the place of an IEP or Section 504 plan meeting or document.

15 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 15 About the ISAAP Tool Q: Which embedded and non-embedded designated supports and accommodations can I configure for students through the ISAAP Tool? A: All embedded and non-embedded designated supports and accommodations may be assigned through the ISAAP Tool. However, turning off a universal tool and stacked translations must be activated in the test delivery system.

16 Using the CAASPP ISAAP Tool 16 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.
