New for the 2012 13 elpa exempting domains for students on an iep or 504 plan

New for the 2012-13 ELPA:Exempting Domains for Students on an IEP or 504 Plan

If a student’s IEP or 504 Plan exempts the student from responding to a particular domain of the ELPA (reading, writing, speaking, or listening), districts may exempt a student from an ELPA domain in TIDE.

This new restricted resource will ensure that the student does not receive any items from the exempted domain when taking the ELPA and will replace the need for TAs to enter false responses through the student interface as in past years. For students who test with this new restricted resource, the student’s ELPA score will be generated based on the remaining domains.

Remember: This restricted resource may only be entered by either the DTSA or DSA and must be entered prior to approving the student to start the ELPA. Once a student has been approved to start the ELPA, the district may no longer set this restricted resource for the student. In addition to setting this restricted resource in TIDE, districts must also ensure that the student’s IEP code is entered correctly in Student Centered Staging using the ELPA “Only” IEP test administration codes found in Appendix J – Accessing Student Scores Online of the Test Administration Manual.

Regarding proposed K-1 blueprint changes, 2012-13

  • After discussion and review of the variances of the SEM for the K-1 grade band, any blueprint changes will be delayed another year.

  • During 2012-13, ODE will survey stakeholders concerning the K-1 operational test, taking input about what changes (if any) to explore.

  • For 2012-13, the K-1 blueprint remains the same as it was for 2011-12.
