Training for ELPA and MI-Access Scoring and Administration

2008

ASSESSMENT & ACCOUNTABILITY CONFERENCES


  • To help coordinators who train assessment administrators better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • To provide information on resources available to aid understanding

  • And, ultimately, to…

    • increase the reliability and validity of assessment results through better understanding, and

    • ensure that students’ efforts are accurately scored, reported, and counted

PURPOSE


Mi access assessments
MI-Access Assessments better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • Participation — for students who have, or function as if they have, severe cognitive impairment

  • Supported Independence — for students who have, or function as if they have, moderate cognitive impairment

  • Functional Independence — for students who have, or function as if they have, mild cognitive impairment

Three Assessments


Content areas assessed
Content Areas Assessed better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • The MI-Access assessments cover three content areas:

    • English language arts (ELA),

    • mathematics, and

    • science

  • The assessments reflect Michigan’s GLCEs, HSCEs, and/or Benchmarks, but they have been extended — or reduced in depth, breadth, and complexity — so they are appropriate for the student populations being assessed


Mi access participation supported independence assessments
MI-Access Participation & better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA Supported Independence Assessments

  • The Participation and Supported Independence (P/SI) assessments use TWO item formats:

    • Activity-based observation — items are presented to students during familiar classroom activities or routines, which provide a performance context for assessing specific EGLCEs, EHSCEs, and/or EBs

    • Selected response — students are read an item stem, or question, and asked to select the correct response


Activity based observation item
Activity-Based Observation Item better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • ACTIVITY: The student will correctly indicate the difference between whole and part when engaged in a familiar food preparation activity, such as assembling ingredients for a snack. For example, the student could be shown a whole cup of milk and part of a cup of milk and then be asked, “Which one is a whole cup?”

  • SCORING FOCUS: Differentiating between a whole object and part of an object

Sample Participation Mathematics Item (Grades 6-8)

Sample Participation Science Item (Grade 8)

  • P items have 2 picture answer choices

  • SI items have 3 picture answer choices


Picture card presentation styles
Picture Card Presentation Styles better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • Both picture cards must be presented at the same time in one order, then presented again with the positions reversed

  • ELA activity-based observation items that use words paired with pictures also have specific presentation styles (see Appendix C in the manual)

P si assessment administrators
P/SI Assessment Administrators better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • Administered by TWO people—a Primary Assessment Administrator (PAA) and a Shadow Assessment Administrator (SAA)

    • The PAA and SAA work together prior to the assessment to determine the student’s anticipated response mode.

  • The PAA and SAA observe the student being assessed and simultaneously and independently score the student using a standardized scoring rubric (regardless of item format)


P si scoring rubrics
P/SI Scoring Rubrics better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • The scoring rubrics…

    • are based on the student responding correctly, and

    • take into consideration the amount of assistance required to engage the student in the item

  • The scoring rubrics contain both…

    • score points, and

    • condition codes (which add meaning to zeroes)

  • www.mi-access.info

  • Explains the P/SI rubrics in detail

  • Shows AAs using them to score students on sample items

  • Is being updated (still says “pilot”)


Mi access coordinator assessment administrator manual
MI-Access Coordinator & Assessment Administrator Manual better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • The manual includes…

    • an entire section explaining how the P/SI assessments are designed and should be administered,

    • flow charts showing how to apply the scoring rubrics, and

    • score point and condition code definitions and examples


P si item analyses
P/SI Item Analyses better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • Compares how AAs scored released items

  • Can be used at district/building level to discuss issues of consistency

  • Produced only when 10 or more students in the same grade take the same test


Functional independence
Functional Independence better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • For Functional Independence, a scoring rubric is used only for ELA Expressing Ideas

  • Students are asked to respond to an open-ended prompt:

    • Tell about what you like to do outside when the weather is cold. Be sure to include details and examples in your response.

  • Students can write, draw, or use a combination to express their response

  • Students can also dictate their response if their disability prevents them from writing or drawing


Ela expressing ideas rubric
ELA Expressing Ideas Rubric better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • Student responses are evaluated by external hand-scorers using a 4-point rubric that measures

    • topic focus,

    • organization, and

    • use of language and visual conventions

  • 4 is the highest score a student can receive

  • The rubric includes condition codes and comment codes


Ela expressing ideas rubric1
ELA Expressing Ideas Rubric better understand scoring procedures for MI-Access and the ELPA

  • Condition codes add meaning to a score point of zero

    • A = off topic

    • B = illegible

    • C = written in a language other than English

    • D = blank/refused to respond

  • Comment codes elaborate on each score point

    • Lacks clear focus on the prompt topic

    • Shows limited development with insufficient details and/or examples

    • Lacks clear organization of ideas and/or arrangement of figures

    • Contains errors in language/visual conventions that interfere with understanding
