Create a positive atmosphere

Create a Positive Atmosphere

  • Help students approach testing in a relaxed, positive way

  • Reassure students they will have ample time to do their best.

  • Emphasize that scores will not affect their grades, it is only to find out which skills they have mastered and which need further development.

  • Encourage students to attempt all items.


Test administration

Test Administration

  • Follow instructions exactly

  • Test directions must be read as written.

  • Test sessions must be administered within the allotted time.

  • Provide clear directions to students about staying in the session of the test being administered

  • Provide a couple of time reminders (eg. Halfway, 5 minutes to the end of the test)


Role of the proctor during testing

Role of the Proctor During Testing

  • Remain in the room throughout the entire test administration and periodically walk around the room to:

    • Ensure that students are not using any prohibited electronic devices

    • Monitor student progress (i.e. check if the students are in the correct content area and session)

    • Ensure that students are filling in the bubbles correctly using a # 2 pencil

    • Make sure that the students are on task

    • Remind students to check their test session for any missed items or pages prior to completing/turning book in. (Proctors should not page through any student’s book to check for completeness of answers, missed items or pages. To do so would be considered a security violation.)


Make ups

Make-ups

  • Keep track of students tested and give make-up sessions to any student who missed one or more sessions of the WKCE. (A single missed session will affect a student’s score greatly.)

  • All testing must be completed by the close of the testing window.


Important reminder

ImportantReminder

Ensure each student is working in their own WKCE test book

  • Proctors should be diligently checking test book labels

  • Ask students to be sure they have the correct book in front of them by checking the label on the front before they begin testing.


Unhelpful test taking strategies

UnhelpfulTest-TakingStrategies

  • Test-taking strategies that hinder not help

    • The Cross-off Method

    • Use of Post-it Notes


Who is responsible for test security

Who is Responsible for Test Security?

Everyone who works with the assessments, communicates test results, and/or receives testing information. This includes:

  • DPI staff

  • District Administrators

  • DACs

  • SACs

  • Students, parents, and the community

  • Certified and non-certified public school staff

  • CESA staff


Test security

TestSecurity

  • Security must be maintained throughout the testing process. This means

    • before, during, and after testing

    • Ensuring appropriate administration of the test monitoring students during testing, using accommodations appropriately, inventory of test books at all times, securing test in a locked room when not in use, etc.

    • All test books must be returned to the testing vendor after testing, Test books must not be retained in schools/ districts


Test security state law test access rules

TestSecurityStateLaw– TestAccessRules

  • Wis. Stat. 118.30 (3)(a) allows a person to view the WKCE or WAA-SwD if they submit a request within the 90 days after the administration of the exams

    • Procedure for requesting a copy of the test

  • Individuals viewing the exams will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement form

  • A copy of the test book at each grade level will be kept at each CESA to meet the Public Access statutory requirement only


Test security manual

Test

Security

Test Security Manual

  • Test Security Manual is available on the test security webpage http://oea.dpi.wi.gov/assessment/WKCE/security

  • General principles and operational standards for administration of assessments

  • Pre and post-test activities and procedures to follow during testing


Test security training

TestSecurityTraining

  • The Office of Student Assessment (OSA) has developed a proctor test security training which is available at http://oea.dpi.wi.gov/assessment/WKCE/trainings


Consequences of test security violations

ConsequencesofTestSecurityViolations

  • Invalidation of test results for individual students or groups of students

  • This invalidation will result in:

    • Parents receiving no scores on their child’s report

    • Public reporting will reflect all invalidated tests as “not tested.” This may reduce the percentage of students meeting proficiency


Report security concerns

ReportSecurityConcerns!

  • Report concerns regarding test security or test administration to the Office of Student Assessment (OSA) at (608) 267-1072.

  • OSA will investigate and follow up on all reported incidents.

  • Ensuring adequate test security training will reduce the number of inadvertent errors which occur.


Accounting for all students

AccountingforAllStudents

  • All students enrolled in grades 4, 8 and 10 in Wisconsin public schools must be accounted for.

  • If a student who was expected to take the WKCE does not take the WKCE, a blank test book—with either the student pre-ID label or the Student Information Page completed—must be returned for that student.

  • The WKCE is for students whose instruction is based on the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards in Science and Social Studies.


After administration

After Administration

  • Ensure all tests are collected from students

  • Return test materials to the centralized secure location
