5 5 Carefully read the Test Administration Directions in advance Prepare students: 1. Announce testing dates with start times Three subtests administered in this order October 4 – Reading October 5 – Writing October 6 – Mathematics All testing must begin between 8:00am and10:00on the designated dates Students are not permitted to leave within the first two hours of testing No students are permitted to start after the first two hours of testing 2. Explain the purpose of the test 3. Confirm which subtests are to be taken for each student 4. Outline cell phone and other technology limitations/consequences Checklist Before Testing

6 6 Test Administration Directions Manuals Test books Precode labels and/or district/school labels (preferably affixed to each book) Rulers and protractors Do Not Score Labels Classroom Daily Check In-Check Out Worksheet Provided by District: Sharpened No. 2 pencils with eraser (not mechanical) Extra erasers Scratch paper Do Not Disturb sign(s) Seating Chart (suggested) List of students and subtests to be taken List of students requiring accommodations/modifications Provided by DRC: Prepare the classroom: 1. Remove any displayed instructional material 2. Check and locate all necessary testing materials 3. Familiarize yourself with the Classroom Daily Check In-Check Out Worksheet (or the like) in the TAD 4. Ensure the testing environment is free of disruption Before Testing

7 7 Obtain a list of students needing accommodations Materials for students receiving accommodations might include: 1. Large Print 2. Braille 3. Audio CD 4. Sign Language DVD These materials can also be requested through the DTC Braille and Large Print accommodated materials require transcription of responses into a Form I Standard Test Book (procedures for transcription are in the Test Administration Directions) IMPORTANT: Reading Audio CD consists of 2 volumes (2 separate discs). Ensure both discs are provided to students during testing. Before Testing

8 8 Clarify rules prohibiting electronic devices with all students Three subtests administered in this order 1. October 4 – reading 2. October 5 – writing 3. October 6 – mathematics Distribute, collect, and inventory testing materials using the Check In- Check Out Worksheet (or the like) Students are not permitted to work on previous or subsequent days test Checklist During Testing

9 9 HSGQE Retest Form I One test book containing reading, writing, and mathematics Label on the front cover (precode or district/school) When using district/school labels, bubble in all student information (see TAD for details) Returning adults with Certificates of Achievement – bubble in what is known During Testing

10 10 Precode LabelDistrict/School Label All test books must have either a precode label or a district/school label Test books returned without a label will be considered unused and WILL NOT BE SCORED During Testing

11 11 The precode label saves proctors time and eliminates error in student identification If a precode label is used, the bubbles on the front cover of the test remain blank In cases where students fill in bubbles – the label overrides any marks (no need to erase the bubbles) During Testing

12 12 Note the label includes the HSGQE subtests to be taken It is a quick reference for proctors to use If only the subtests are inaccurate, the label may still be used– it will not impact any data collection During Testing

13 13 District/school labels are used in place of a precode label It will assign the student to the correct district and school for reporting test scores When a precode label contains incorrect student-identifying information, replace it with the district/school label When a district/school label is applied, all bubbles on the test book front cover must be completed During Testing

14 14 Proctors must follow the instructions exactly to ensure similar testing conditions in all classrooms All text preceded by the say bubble must be read exactly as written If a student asks for help, say, I cannot help you with that. Please do the best you can. Consistently monitor student progress while testing: Cheating Random marking of answers Guessing Correct subtest (reading, writing, mathematics) Proper bubbling During Testing

15 15 Are you prepared to handle the following during testing: Bloody nose Student illness Student violence or destruction of test Student disruption Unscheduled parent visit Earthquake During Testing

16 16 When a student turns in the test book, note the time on the Worksheet, and ask, Have you checked to make sure you have answered all the questions? Do not flip through the test book to check for completion After testing is complete, inventory student test books and ensure the following: 1.
