Components of the 2015 Texas Assessment Program State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) –STAAR Spanish –STAAR A –STAAR L –STAAR Alternate 2 TAKS (exit level) Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS)
Answer Documents STAAR and STAAR Spanish — one combined answer document STAAR A is online STAAR L is online STAAR Alternate 2 — no answer documents should be submitted for students assessed with STAAR Alternate 2
Answer Documents (continued) TELPAS is online TAKS is online only since October 2014
Answer Documents (continued) STAAR Score Codes –“S” – tested –“A” – absent –“O” – other (illness, testing irregularity, EOC/above grade level, substitute assessment, etc.) –“*” – paper/online (STAAR/STAAR A or STAAR/STAAR L) –SSI score codes –EOC defaults to “O” if student previously achieved Level II: Satisfactory Academic Performance (score code default set to “3”) NOTE: For each subject area, only ONE score code should be gridded.
Answer Documents (continued) An “*” score code is present on all STAAR answer documents that have two subject areas tested. NOTE: For each subject area, only ONE score code should be gridded.
Answer Documents (cont.) TEST TAKEN INFO field — information about the language version (English or Spanish) must be recorded in this field. –“EN” or “SP” for grades 3, 4, and 5
STAAR Precoding Precoded labels – English I and II, and grades 4 and 7 writing Precoded answer documents – STAAR EOC (Algebra I, biology, and U.S. history) and grades 3–8 reading, mathematics, science, and social studies
Precoding (Continued) Districts can receive two precoded answer documents (when appropriate) for students testing above grade. –Example: A student will take grade 6 reading and grade 7 mathematics. Submit a record in the precode file with the grade-level-code as ‘06’ and a value of ‘07’ in the “Above Grade Code” field.
Precoding (Continued) Reminder that we do not pull PEIMS records for EOC. Districts need to supply data if they want precode documents for students other than the non-masters. You will receive two precoded answer documents in April for grades 5 and 8 due to delayed testing for mathematics. One document will be used for mathematics and the other will be used for science (grade 5) or science and social studies (grade 8). The demographic data on the answer documents will be the same. Update both answer documents if a change is needed. Make sure to use the answer document that corresponds to the test book.
Precoding (Continued) STAAR L and STAAR A are given online –Register students with an ‘L’ or ‘A’ in the “STAAR EOC Test Version Code” when submitting a student data file. –Records will also need to be designated as online in the “Test Format” for EOC. –For grades 3–8 when a student is designated as STAAR L in the data file and one of the tests is not a STAAR L test, the student will be registered for the STAAR L test and may receive a precoded document for the non STAAR L subject (reading and mathematics assessments on the same answer document). –For spring 2015 Standardized Oral Administrations (online tests) will be available for grades 4, 6, and 7 mathematics and reading; grade 5 science; and grade 8 science and social studies. You will be able to register students through a data file submission by using the correct code as indicated in the Student Data File Format for Student Registration and Precoding.
PEIMS Data The “preliminary” PEIMS file was loaded to the Texas Assessment Management System student directory in late December. The “final” PEIMS file will be loaded in late February or early March. Do not request updates to student names or DOBs (if the student is on the PEIMS file) between now and early March because the values from the “final” file will overwrite the updates you requested.
STAAR Reporting EOC and 3–8 will have separate data files/reports All reports will be provided online in PDF format STAAR, STAAR Spanish, STAAR L, STAAR A, and STAAR Alternate 2 will all be reported on the same file Changes between 2014 and 2015 are shown in italics
