Assessment

Assessment

  • Screening of learners’ skills

  • Diagnostic assessment of learners’ skills for classification of educational functioning level

  • Schedule each learner for prescriptive planning


Kbor assessment policy

KBOR Assessment Policy

  • Kansas Adult Education Policy Manual

  • Section 11. Kansas Adult Education Assessment Policies and Procedures


Kbor assessment policy1

KBOR Assessment Policy

  • Learners have valid CASAS diagnostic test score(s) for determining Educational Functioning Level prior to completion of 12 hours

  • Learner’s educational gains determined only by CASAS pre- and post testing

  • Learners should be pretested in multiple skill areas

  • Learners are leveled in PABLO based on the lowest diagnostic pretest score in which the learner identifies a desire to study


Kbor assessment policy2

KBOR Assessment Policy

  • All CASAS test scores, test forms used, and dates of testing must be entered into PABLO, including invalid testing

  • Programs should strive to never test a learner on a test form more than once

  • A learner must never test more than once within a six-month period on the same test form

  • Learners should be posttested initiallybetween 60-70 hours of program services and then at every 60-70 hours of instruction thereafter


Kbor assessment policy3

KBOR Assessment Policy

  • Programs should not administer posttest to learners who have less than 30 hours of program services

  • Test booklets, answer sheets, answer keys and any other testing materials must be maintained in a secured area

  • Teachers may not review specific test items with learners when discussing test results nor include actual test items or even slightly revised test items in any instructional materials


Kbor assessment policy4

KBOR Assessment Policy

  • Every person who administers a CASAS assessment, scores a CASAS assessment, and reports scores for entry into PABLO must be CASAS certified

  • All test administrators must have access to and use the CASAS test administration manual for every test that is administered


Assessment1

Assessment

Phases of Assessment

  • Orientation

  • Initial Assessment/Program Placement

  • Determination of Educational Functioning Levels (EFL)

  • On-going Assessment (Instruction Component)

  • Posttesting/Completion (Test-taking Component)

    Individuals administering CASAS assessments must be trained (certified) by a CASAS state-level trainer


Phases of assessment pre enrollment and orientation

Phases of AssessmentPre-Enrollment and Orientation

Informal assessment

  • Does the learner have difficulty completing the enrollment form?

  • Does the learner have an obvious disability or disclose a hidden disability?

  • What else does the learner disclose?


Phases of assessment initial assessment program placement

Phases of AssessmentInitial Assessment/Program Placement

Comprehensive Student Assessment System (CASAS)

  • Appraisal

    • ABE – CASAS ECS (Employability Competency System) – Reading and Math

    • ESL – CASAS ESL - Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking/Listening


Phases of assessment determination of efl

Phases of AssessmentDetermination of EFL

  • Diagnostic Test (Pretest)

    • ABE – CASAS ECS - Reading, Math, Writing

    • ESL – CASAS ECS, Life & Work, Life Skills - Reading, Listening, Writing

Phases of assessment posttesting completion assessment

Phases of AssessmentPosttesting/Completion Assessment

  • Posttest between 60-70 hours of instruction

  • Posttest with >30 hrs. but <50 hours of instruction if learner discloses that he/she is exiting the program

  • Should not posttest if instruction has not occurred

  • Immediately after pretest is administered refer to CASAS Suggested Next Test Chart to determine which posttest to administered

  • In most cases, CASAS tests series are aligned on same scale and can be used interchangeably

  • CASAS Secondary Assessment series may not be interchanged with a test from another CASAS series
