46 STAAR A Each student computer should then open to this screen….. Grades 3-5: you can type the information in for the students (from the student authorization sheets) except for the last digit on the username. Then when you are ready, the students will type the last number and click enter.Grades 6 and higher: students will need to enter their own information (case-sensitive)
47 STAAR AWhen you are ready to begin, you will need to login to TAMS, click on your test session and select the START button.Make sure you start the session BEFORE you tell students to login.
48 STAAR AOnly the CTC or the DTC will mark a test complete
49 STAAR AResuming a testIf a student exits the test, the test administrator will need follow these steps to resume the test:check the box next to the student’s nameClick the Resume Test buttonTell the student to log back in with the information on the student authorization sheetOnce the student has logged back in, click refresh, and the status should change to active

In addition, the TA may read aloud the information presented to the student in the Help tool.
55 STAAR A Student has completed testing on DAY 1: End of testing Assist the student with submitting his/her testMUST select “I want to exit my test and finish later”DO NOT SUBMIT ANSWERSReview the test overview screen that shows that all answers have been markedSelect “I am finished with my test and would like to submit my answers.”Collect any scratch paperStudent authorizationsOther distributed materialsWrite final stop time on the seating chart

57 STAAR A: 4th grade ONLYTranscribing the composition on day 1 and day 2 for 4th GradeHave scratch paper and lined paper availableStudents will write his/her composition on the lined paper (available on the Sheldon ISD website)It is not required to do it on the lined paper but will help to ensure that the composition will fit in the space provided.Test Administrator will type the composition into the student’s online test form. Please review the basic transcribing guidelines.Suggestion: Assign 2 or more people in the room so one can monitor and one can complete transcriptions.All scratch paper and lined paper must be given the to the CTC to be destroyed.
58 Can pop-ups and rollovers be read aloud by text-to-speech? Text-to-speech does NOT read aloud pop-ups and rollovers. However, the test administrator may read aloud these embedded accommodations at students’ request.The test administrator may NOT read aloud any text in reading selections, editing selections, and editing items. This will be indicated by a DO NOT READ icon.11/11/2014Texas Education Agency
59 Texas Education Agency Why has the DO NOT READ icon only been placed next to the title in reading and editing selections and not on every page of the selection?This decision was made intentionally based on several factors.Test administrators have never been allowed to read the reading selections or the editing selections/questions. This policy remains the same for STAAR A. This information will be included in all test administrator manuals and should be part of test administrator training.If the icon had been added to every page in a selection, the page count for each selection would have increased. This may have been a problem for students with disabilities, since educator feedback has indicated that this population has difficulty scanning through multiple pages in a selection to find answers to test questions.11/11/2014Texas Education Agency
60 Available on the Testing & Assessment site (CTC resources and STAAR A link) Students may complete preferences and the form may be given to the student on the day of testing. The test administrator may NOT set up the student’s accommodation preferences nor can the test administrator require a student to use the preferences determined during the tutorials. However, a test administrator may provide the student with a “reminder card” that indicates the settings the student prefers as determined during the tutorial session. The student must be allowed to determine whether he or she uses these settings when taking STAAR A.
61 Texas Education Agency Does eligibility for Oral Administration need to be documented for students taking STAAR A? What about documenting the level of reading support students will receive on STAAR A?No. According to the Oral Administration policy, this accommodation does NOT apply to STAAR A since this assessment is not listed in the “Assessments” section of the policy.In addition, the rationale for Oral Administration NOT applying to STAAR A is included in the “Examples/Types” section of the policy.The IEP/IAP should NOT list Oral Administration (or levels of reading support) as a testing accommodation if the student is eligible for STAAR A. Text-to-speech is an embedded accommodation and the student will use it independently when needed.11/11/2014Texas Education Agency
62 How can spelling assistance be used on STAAR A? Spell check is NOT an embedded accommodation for the written composition. Students eligible for Spelling Assistance will use what they use in class. See below for special instructions if using spell check, speech-to-text, text-to-speech, or word predictor.The student may use a separate laptop/computer while STAAR A is open in TestNav. He or she will need to transfer the response to the composition typing box (unless eligible for Basic Transcribing).ORThe student can exit the test session, use the accommodation, print out the response, log back in to STAAR A in TestNav, and then transfer his or her responses in the composition typing box (unless eligible for Basic Transcribing).Caution: Once STAAR A is exited, the student will not be able to see the writing prompt, the pop-ups or rollovers, or the writing checklists. TEA is currently discussing possible solutions to this problem.11/11/2014Texas Education Agency
63 Texas Education Agency How can linguistic accommodations, such as clarification in English, be applied to STAAR A?Linguistic accommodations are available for eligible ELLs who also meet requirements for participation in STAAR A. The ARD or Section 504 Committee, in conjunction with the LPAC, may decide that clarification of words in English is appropriate for an ELL taking STAAR A. The accommodation will be provided by the test administrator in a similar fashion to how it has been previously provided in other administrations of state assessments.The test administrator may orally clarify any construct-irrelevant words in test questions including popups and rollovers. However, it is important that any clarification provided by the test administrator not interfere with the content assessed in the question.Please also note that special attention must be paid to the testing environment to ensure that the provision of this accommodation to specific students does not disturb, or provide an advantage to other students in the room.11/11/2014Texas Education Agency
