Materials to Have In Rooms Box to Pick Up Attendance sheet Pencils Scrap paper A few calculators* Test Tickets Seal Code and session name *Students must bring their own or they can use the one provided on the iPad. In Class Keyboards Extra earbuds List of earbud purchasers. Be sure to record students who purchase earbuds. NOTE: Freshman will receive their school-issued earbuds March 9, the first day of testing Slide 21 mod 48 No cell phones, iPods, MP3 players, etc. allowed in the testing room. Their iPads will be limited to access to the PARRC testing and tools.
Before Testing Clear rooms of any potential visual aids. Arrange desks to maximize space between testers.
Testing Days There will be 2 teachers per room. One will be designated as the testing administrator and will be in charge of all the testing material. The other will be designated as a proctor to help monitor the room during testing. DO NOT let students choose their own seats. You will need to assign seating BEFORE students arrive (You’ll get class lists closer to the date). Desks need to be arranged to allow for the maximum amount of space between test takers
Testing Days (cont.) Students will report directly to their testing room where attendance will be taken. I will collect your attendance sheets, each day, after testing has begun. If students have brought phone, iPods, etc, please make sure they are turned off. Collect any of these items before testing begins. Circulate the room to keep a watchful eye. Proctors and Test Administrators cannot use prohibited electronics or do other work.
Reminders Read the script word for word You cannot remind students to drag and drop text, choose more than one answer if needed, etc. If student has wrong ticket, dismiss to Kristina to reschedule the student.
Timed Tests If student cannot complete the testing (leaves mid test for emergency), can continue test on another day. P. 9 1.5.3 TCM (therefore, do not mark as “Marked Complete”) If students take a short bathroom break during testing, student should log out of Testnav (top right), click Save and Return later. Stay on Testnave logout screen. When student returns, log back in to Testnav.

Logging in Passwords are NOT case sensitive Passwords are the same for the class; user ids are unique Seal codes are used classwide to open different units of the ELA, Algebra, or Geometry tests. Seal codes are not available for Training purposes.
Troubleshooting (from TA Manual) ■ Note the time of the disruption so that the remaining time for the unit can be calculated. ■ Follow the procedures outlined by your school on who to contact or troubleshooting guidance. ●● Error codes for TestNav and guidance for resolving computer-based testing issues can be found in the TestNav 8 User Guide or at https://support.assessment.pearson.com/display/TN/Error+Codeshttps://support.assessment.pearson.com/display/TN/Error+Codes. Or our DelVal PARCC PlaceDelVal PARCC Place ●● Technology Coordinators and Test Administrators must not take photos of error screens. ■ If the issue cannot be resolved in a timely manner without disruption to the other students testing, the student should be moved to another testing device, and given time to account for any delay caused by the error and the switch in devices. ■ If no alternate device is available, the student should be dismissed from the testing environment and resume the test on a functioning device as soon as possible on the same day. The student may not return to any section of the test he or she has already completed, and must be given the amount of time remaining in the test unit when the technical problem occurred. ■ Document the situation in writing. Refer to Appendix C for your state’s policy about reporting a testing irregularity.

Form must be submitted to Kristina by the end of the day for a testing irregularity.
Starting a Test Session Before starting the session with students: Have them use the Home button and the power button to restart the iPad. Close all apps. Turn off Autocorrect/predictive text: Go to Settings General Keyboard Turn off Autocorrect and Predictive (8.1.3) They may have to verify the Apple ID for students since the app was just updated: – email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org – Pwd : Delval2015 iOS 8 iOS 7
Complete Observation Notes from PARCC Sessions Why? To anticipate how long it will take for all students’ iPads to be locked into the TestNav app when I administer a test. Also, to anticipate what’s a normal wait time and what’s a technical problem.
