Components of the 2014 texas assessment program

Answer Documents (continued)

  • STAAR Score Codes

    • “S” – tested

    • “A” – absent

    • “O” – other (illness, testing irregularity, EOC/above grade level, etc.)

    • “*” – paper/online or STAAR/STAAR Modified

    • SSI score codes – “P,” “R,” “PW”

    • EOC defaults to “O” if student previously achieved Level II: Satisfactory Academic Performance (score code default set to ‘3’)

      NOTE: For each subject area, only ONE score code should be gridded.


Components of the 2014 texas assessment program

Answer Documents (continued)

  • An “*” score code is present on all STAAR and STAAR Modified answer documents that have two subject areas tested.

    NOTE: For each subject area, only ONE score code should be gridded.


Components of the 2014 texas assessment program

Answer Documents (cont.)

  • TEST TAKEN INFO field — information about the language version (English or Spanish) must be recorded in this field.

    • “EN” or “SP” for grades 3, 4, and 5


Components of the 2014 texas assessment program

Answer Documents (continued)

  • For each subject area tested, only ONE bubble, if applicable, should be gridded in the TEST TAKEN INFO field to show which assessment the student was administered.

    • Determine the language version of the assessment that the student will take (grades 3, 4, and 5 only).

    • Follow the same steps to grid the TEST TAKEN INFO field even if the student is absent from the test or illness/test irregularity occurs during testing.

Components of the 2014 texas assessment program

Answer Documents (continued)

  • Foreign Exchange Students

    • Required to test

    • Bubble on the Spring 2014 answer documents

    • No bubble on the July 2014 answer documents

    • No gridding of Agency Use field


Components of the 2014 texas assessment program

Answer Documents (continued)

  • Graduation Requirements

    • Algebra I, biology, English I, English II, U.S. history

    • English I and English II Transition Rules for reading and writing tests prior to Spring 2014

  • Testing requirements

  • Answer documents – Absent/Other/Void


Components of the 2014 texas assessment program

STAAR Precoding

  • Precoded labels – English I, II, Modified, and grade 4 and 7 writing

  • Precoded answer documents – STAAR EOC (Algebra I, biology, and U.S. history) and grades 3–8 reading, mathematics, science, and social studies


Components of the 2014 texas assessment program

Precoding(Continued)

  • Districts can receive two precoded answer documents (when appropriate) for students testing above grade.

    • Example: A student will take grade 6 reading and grade 7 mathematics. Submit a record in the precode file with the grade-level-code as ‘06’ and a value of ‘07’ in the “Above Grade Code” field.

  • STAAR EOC English I and II

    • STAAR English I and II are combined assessments (reading and writing) beginning in spring 2014. Only one student record needs to be submitted for a student taking English I or English II. Use subject codes E1 or E2 to register students for appropriate tests. Records must indicate if the student will test online or on paper


Components of the 2014 texas assessment program

Precoding (Continued)

  • If the student is identified as Special Education = ‘1’ and is testing on paper, a precoded answer document and a precode label (in case the student needs to test with Modified) will be provided.

  • Reminder that we do not pull PEIMS records for EOC. Districts need to supply data if they want precode documents for students other than the non-masters.

  • Campuses selected to participate in the 2014 STAAR Grade 4 Prompt Study will receive precode labels from the PEIMS file.


Components of the 2014 texas assessment program

Precoding(Continued)

  • STAAR L is given online

    • Register students with an ‘L’ in the “STAAR EOC Test Version Code” when submitting a student data file. Submit only for Algebra I, biology, and U.S. history.

    • Records will also need to be designated as online in the “Test Format” for EOC.

    • For grades 3–8 when a student is designated as STAAR L in the data file and one of the tests is not a STAAR L test, the student will be registered for the STAAR L test and will receive a precoded document for the non STAAR L subject (reading and mathematics assessments on the same answer document).

    • For spring 2014 Standardized Oral Administrations (online tests) will be available for grades 4 and 7 mathematics and reading and grade 8 science and social.  You will be able to register students through a data file submission by using the correct code as indicated in the Student Data File Format for Student Registration and Precoding.
