2 State of Tennessee Test Security Law Tennessee Code Annotated (T.C.A.) 49-1-607 states: Any person found to have not followed security guidelines for administration of the TCAP test, or success or test, including making or distributing unauthorized copies of the test, altering a grade or answer sheet, providing copies of answers or test questions, or otherwise compromising the integrity of the testing process shall be placed on immediate suspension, and such actions will be grounds for dismissal, including dismissal of tenured employees. Such actions shall be grounds for revocation of state license. [Acts 1992, ch. 535, 4.]

3 The Public School System MUST: Adopt a locally-monitored test security policy which incorporates, at a minimum, these State Test Security Guidelines Implement policies and procedures to prohibit all personnel from obtaining knowledge of test items or passage content before, during, and after testing

4 The Public School System MUST: Train all personnel involved in the testing process on State Test Security Law, Security Guidelines, local policy, and test administration procedures; retain training documentation for system records Restrict handling of test materials to authorized personnel at all times

5 The Public School System MUST: Implement check-in, check-out, and quantity verification procedures for all test materials at the system level, at the school level, and for each test session Return test materials to the predetermined secure area immediately after each test session and when the entire administration is completed

6 The Public School System MUST: Store test materials in a centrally-located locked room that is inaccessible to unauthorized persons Conceal all instructional or reference materials in the test setting, which are related to the content area being assessed, such as maps, posters, student samples, bulletin board items, etc.

7 The Public School System MUST: Turn off all electronic communication devices (cell phones, pagers, palm pilots, etc.) in the test setting Confirm each student is the person named on the answer document for every testing session.

8 The Public School System MUST: Require test administrators and proctors to remain with the students and be observant and non- disruptive throughout the test session Require test administrators and proctors to carefully adhere to all test administration and accommodation instructions, following appropriate schedules

9 The Public School System MUST: Prohibit coaching students in any way during State assessments Prohibit reading test items and passages by anyone other than the students being tested, unless indicated in test instructions or accommodations Ensure that test items are not reproduced, duplicated, or paraphrased in any way, for any reason, by any person

10 The Public School System MUST: Ensure students respond to test without assistance from anyone Maintain confidentiality of student- specific demographic information and test results at all times Document test security concerns, including missing materials, on the Breach of Testing Security Report form

11 Breach of Testing Security The test content cannot be discussed with colleagues or anyone. Making notes on test content is not allowed.

12 Step 1: Check Your Test Materials Check to be sure you have received the following materials. If any materials are missing, notify your Testing Coordinator. PROVIDED FOR THE TEACHER Test Directions for Teachers Test book(s)

13 Step 1: Check Your Test Materials PROVIDED FOR THE TEACHER Group Information Sheet - Complete and return the Group Information Sheet with your test materials to ensure accurate processing of tests. Your name should appear on all testing info exactly as it does on the GIS.

14 Step 1: Check Your Test Materials PROVIDED FOR EACH STUDENT Understanding the TCAP Achievement Test/Practice Test Test book(s) Punch-out ruler (to be separated prior to testing)

15 Step 1: Check Your Test Materials ADDITIONAL MATERIALS NEEDED FOR EACH STUDENT No. 2 pencil with eraser extra eraser scratch paper for solving mathematics problems

16 Step 1: Check Your Test Materials OPTIONAL Four-function calculators (not provided with test materials) The decision to use or not to use calculators should be made at the school system level based on standard classroom practices. Multiplication Tables – a clean copy must be used and is available online

17 Step 2: Plan Your Testing Schedule Review the test and test directions in advance. Plan test administration for students requiring accommodations.

18 Step 2: Plan Your Testing Schedule Allow sufficient time to fill in the student accountability demographic information on all test books, including students name on the inside front cover of the test book. This information MUST be completed by the classroom teacher!

19 Step 2: Plan Your Testing Schedule Scheduled breaks are indicated in the specific directions for each content area. Be sensitive to students fatigue level and attention span and be prepared to alter your schedule as necessary. Students should not eat snacks during breaks in the testing area. Allow time for make-up sessions for students who miss a testing session.

20 Step 2: Plan Your Testing Schedule - Working with Proctors Proctors can help you: Arrange the testing room Separate punch-out rulers Distribute test materials If math tables are used, student must have a clean copy. (One is available on the main county website.)

21 Step 2: Plan Your Testing Schedule - Working with Proctors Calculators Calculators can be used on both math tests. If calculators are to be used, make sure they are in working order before testing begins. Number lines are NOT allowed.

22 Step 2: Plan Your Testing Schedule - Working with Proctors Proctors can help you: Make sure students are working in the correct place and are marking only one answer for each test question Prevent talking or sharing of answers Collect materials at the end of the testing session

23 Step 2: TCAP P Administration Time Reading and Language Arts, Part 1 - 40 minutes Break Reading and Language Arts, Part 2 - 40 minutes Mathematics, Part 1 - 40 minutes Mathematics, Part 2 - 40 minutes Science, Part 1 - 40 minutes Science, Part 2 - 40 minutes Social Studies, Part 1 - 40 minutes Social Studies, Part 2 - 40 minutes Break It is permissible to change the order of the tests. The time limits are generous and allow most students time to finish. Practice Activities (optional) 20 minutes

24 Step 3 : Organize Your Classroom Plan for the distribution and collection of materials. Plan seating arrangements. Allow enough space between students to prevent sharing of answers.

25 Conceal all instructional or reference materials in the test setting that are related to the content area being assessed, such as maps, posters, student samples, bulletin board items, etc. Eliminate distractions such as bells or telephones. Use a Do Not Disturb sign on the door of the testing room. Step 3 : Organize Your Classroom

26 On the chalkboard, indicate starting and stopping times for each test session. Plan a quiet activity for students who finish testing early. Use your judgment here: sometimes students race through the test to get to the activity! Step 3 : Organize Your Classroom

27 Plan for accommodations to be provided as specified for individual students. Avoid calling attention to students who require accommodations. Plan testing so that students using accommodations do not distract or affect administration procedures for other students. Step 3 : Organize Your Classroom

28 Step 4: Prepare Your Students Help students approach the testing in a relaxed, positive way. Explain that the purpose of taking an achievement test is to find out which skills have been learned and which skills need further development.

29 Point out that some test questions may be more difficult than others and that some material may be new to students; students are not expected to know all the answers. Reassure students that they will be given ample time to do their best. Emphasize that the test requires no special preparation. Step 4: Prepare Your Students

30 Step 5 : Plan to Use Standard Testing Procedures Following the instructions exactly ensures similar testing conditions in all classrooms. Test directions should be read as written.

31 ASSESSMENT ACCOMMODATIONS When students have documented education plans indicating that they may participate in educational tests only under nonstandard conditions (e.g., extra testing time), appropriate accommodations should be made. Step 5 : Plan to Use Standard Testing Procedures

32 COACHING Be sure students understand the directions and how to mark answers. Assist them with test- taking mechanics, but be careful not to inadvertently give hints or clues that indicate an answer or help eliminate answer choices. Step 5 : Plan to Use Standard Testing Procedures

33 GUESSING Encourage students to attempt all questions. Tell them to read each question carefully and make their best attempt at answering. Be careful not to imply that they should guess randomly. Step 5 : Plan to Use Standard Testing Procedures

34 INVALIDATION OF TEST (RI) Students must mark only one response for a question and erase completely any response they do not want. Students who mark randomly will be processed normally. Do not fill out a Report of Irregularity for random marking situations. Step 5 : Plan to Use Standard Testing Procedures

35 INVALIDATION OF TEST (RI) Special circumstances, interruptions, or distractions that affect individual or group performance can invalidate test results. Complete a Report of Irregularity form for students who experience sudden illness or become unduly disturbed by the testing situation. If you are not certain about how to treat a particular situation, consult your Testing Coordinator. Step 5 : Plan to Use Standard Testing Procedures

36 INVALIDATION OF TEST (RI) 3-part form used for serious irregularities. Include teachers name, school, and phone number Put form under GIS and make a copy to keep for your records. Do not attach to answer sheet This documentation could impact students score. Step 5 : Plan to Use Standard Testing Procedures

37 INVALIDATION OF TEST (RI) The student: Cheated on Math Part B Had inappropriate assistance on Science Part A Left the room Used defective materials Took wrong test Received improper accommodations Refused to take the test Step 5 : Plan to Use Standard Testing Procedures EXAMPLESEXAMPLES

38 INVALIDATION OF TEST (RI) Absences Unsuccessful attempts at cheating Answering randomly Upset student Forgot glasses Noise or other interruption Hot/cold room temperature Not take medication Step 5 : Plan to Use Standard Testing Procedures EXAMPLESEXAMPLES NOT NOT Legitimate RI
