    8. Key Changes in Testing Policy and Procedures 9

    9. Key Changes in Testing Policy and Procedures • Texas Assessment Management System • Consolidates services previously provided by the • eMeasurement (online testing), SchoolHouse (online data • management), and SchoolSuccess (TAKS–Alt) websites. • Optional Reports • A paper Optional Reports Order Form will no longer be • provided in the TAKS district coordinator packet. Optional • reports for TAKS will be ordered online through the • Assessment Management System. Optional reports for TELPAS • will also be ordered through the Assessment Management • System. • TELPAS Holistic Rating Training • The TELPAS holistic rating training processes have been • streamlined beginning with the 2010–2011 school year. The • streamlined processes are designed to make the procedures • easier to follow and oversee. 10

    10. Key Changes in Testing Policy and Procedures • TELPAS Validity and Reliability Audit • An audit of the listening and speaking components of TELPAS • will be conducted in spring 2011. • Proctor Caching • The Assessment Management System provides proctor • caching software to accelerate the delivery of test content to • students and to reduce the amount of bandwidth required for • online testing. Districts are now required to use proctor • caching. • TAKS Grade 5 Spanish Test Booklets • The April grade 5 mathematics and reading assessments will • be administered from separate test booklets, not a combined • booklet. Students will continue to use a combined answer • document. 11

    11. Key Changes in Testing Policy and Procedures • Data Collection • Race/Ethnicity Field • TEA will no longer collect ethnicity and race information • using both the “old” and “new” federal standards, • beginning with PEIMS data collection in 2010–2011. • Answer documents will contain only the fields • needed to meet the latest federal standards. • Substitute Assessment • An “ALT” bubble has been added to the June TAKS grade 5 • and 8 mathematics and reading answer documents to • indicate if a district provided an alternate way to meet the • SSI requirements for a third testing opportunity. • Years in U.S. Schools • This TELPAS data collection has changed slightly. The • previous “5 or more school years” category has been • divided into “5 school years” and “6 or more school years.” 12

    12. Race and Ethnicity 2010-11 USDE Data Reporting • Categories • Hispanic/Latino • American Indian or Alaska Native • Asian • Black or African American • Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander • White • Two or More Races • NO student counted twice • Any Hispanic/Latino (Q1) will be Hispanic/Latino regardless of Question 2 • Not Hispanic/Latino (Q1) will be reported based on Question 2 PEIMS Data Collection • Question 1 – Ethnicity (ONLY one) • Hispanic/Latino • Not Hispanic/Latino • Question 2 – Race (one or more) • American Indian or Alaska Native • Asian • Black or African American • Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander • White

    13. Race and Ethnicity Examples • Student 1 • Data Collection • Hispanic • White • Data Reporting • Hispanic

    14. Race and Ethnicity Examples • Student 2 • Data Collection • Hispanic • American Indian or Alaska Native • Black or African American • White • Data Reporting • Hispanic

    15. Race and Ethnicity Examples • Student 3 • Data Collection • Not Hispanic • White • Data Reporting • White

    16. Race and Ethnicity Examples • Student 4 • Data Collection • Not Hispanic • American Indian or Alaska Native • Black or African American • White • Data Reporting • Two or More Races

    17. Race and Ethnicity 2010-11 USDE Data Reporting • Categories • Hispanic/Latino • American Indian or Alaska Native • Asian • Black or African American • Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander • White • Two or More Races • NO student counted twice • Any Hispanic/Latino (Q1) will be Hispanic/Latino regardless of Question 2 • Not Hispanic/Latino (Q1) will be reported based on Question 2 PEIMS Data Collection • Question 1 – Ethnicity (ONLY one) • Hispanic/Latino • Not Hispanic/Latino • Question 2 – Race (one or more) • American Indian or Alaska Native • Asian • Black or African American • Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander • White

    18. Texas Assessment Management System ESC Training December 2010

    19. Texas Assessment Management System The Texas Assessment Management System, replaces most test management activities previously offered at SchoolHouse (also known as Online Data Management), eMeasurement Services (also known as online testing), and SchoolSuccess (which included TAKS–Alt).

    20. Texas Assessment Management System The Texas Assessment Management System also houses the teacher portal, the student portal, and will be the future home of analytic reporting.

    21. Texas Assessment Management System The Texas Assessment website (http://www.TexasAssessment.com) is a web destination that provides access to the Texas Assessment Management System.

    22. Benefits • Management of both online and paper testing administrative tasks are incorporated into one interface. • A single login allows an authorized user access to various assessment management tools. • User roles can be designated to match the test administration roles, such as campus testing coordinators and online test administrators.

    23. Benefits • The process for uploading precode files has been streamlined, and new tools for managing the precode process have been added. • The functionality to set up test sessions, to add students to existing test sessions, and to maintain class rosters for online testing has been improved. • The online reporting capability has been improved and will beexpanded.

    24. Benefits • Participation in online assessments are now designated through the enrollment and registration process rather than through a separate registration form. • Data portals (student, teacher, and analytic reporting) will be included and accessible in the same location.

    25. Texas Assessment Management System Functionality Test administration tasks • Define roles and grant organization access Administrative Management and Organizations • Send Student Data • Manage Student Directory Student Data • Enter administration details • Manage participation counts • Track test materials • Order additional materials Test Setup • Register students to tests • Update student demographic data • Create, view, and manage online tests • Resolve student test alerts Test Management • View alternate assessment data • Edit, update, and submit alternate assessment data • View student evaluation status reports • Enter holistic ratings and rater information for TELPAS • Manage TELPAS rating entry groups • Generate TELPAS reading and holistic rating combined status report Student Evaluation Test Results • View, download, and print published reports • View registration file extract • View registration summary

    26. Portals in the Texas Assessment Management System

    27. Teacher Portal • The teacher portal is currently available in the Texas Assessment Management System • The Teacher Portal provides teachers with visibility into their students’ TAKS and TELPAS assessment results from the current and previous school years.

    28. Teacher Portal • Districts can currently submit files (student ID information, current county-district-campus number, and group name) in the Assessment Management System to have students placed in groups. Once teachers are linked to the appropriate group(s), they can then access their student's previous year’s assessment results. • In fall 2011, a file will be provided from PEIMS that will supply the link between teachers and students from the 2010–2011 school year. Groups will be created in the Assessment Management System and teachers can be linked to the students they taught in the previous school year.

    29. Student Portal • The Student Portal of the Texas Assessment Management System is designed to provide students and parents with online access to a student’s state test scores. • The portal provides scores from the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) and the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS). • This portal will assist students and parents with tracking academic progress throughout a student’s academic career.

    30. Student Portal • Access to the site is provided through a Unique Access Code and the student’s birth date, both as provided on the student’s Confidential Student Report. • The Unique Access Code is designed to stay with a student throughout his/her academic career. The Unique Access Code should be safeguarded in the same way as the Confidential Student Report.

    31. Analytic Reporting • The analytic reporting system will allow users to analyze results in order to compare current and historical data as well as to perform comparisons of classes to campuses, campuses to campuses, campuses to districts, districts to districts, and districts to the state. • Campuses and districts will also be able to disaggregate data so that different demographic and program information groups may be examined, enabling easy access to cross-section analysis of the assessment data. • This functionality will be available in spring 2011.

    32. Assessment Information Provided to Institutions of Higher Education • Providing results to public institutions of higher education is planned for summer 2011. • Current plans call for use of the Texas Records Exchange (TREx) system which currently provides student record and transcript information for public institutions of higher education.

    33. Available Resources • Assessment Management System Resources • There are many sources of support for the Texas Assessment Management System. All support documentation and resources can be found on the Support page of the Texas Assessment website. There you will find: • User's Guide for the Texas Assessment Management System located on the Resources page of the Texas Assessment website at http://www.TexasAssessment.com/guide • User's Guide to the Student Portal of the Texas Assessment Management System • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) • Support Center Information • If you have questions about the Assessment Management System, you can call Pearson’s Austin Operations Center at 800-627-0225 (Monday–Friday, 7:30 AM–5:30 PM, Central Time) to talk to a support specialist. • E-mail Information • To contact system support personnel, email: TxPearsonAccess@support.pearson.com.

    34. Training Modules Numerous training modules are available to district staff to learn about the capabilities of the Texas Assessment Management System. These modules can be found on the Training tab of the Texas Assessment website’s Resources page. Training modules include: • Texas Assessment Management System – District Orientation • Introduction to PearsonAccess • Organization Overview • User Management Overview • Student Data Management Overview • Setting Up Online Testing Environment • Test Management Overview • Test Setup Overview • Test Results Overview

    35. Practice Center The Practice Center for the Texas Assessment Management System allows you to practice without affecting the “live” data for paper and online testing activities. For example: • After creating sample students, practice registering students and assigning them to groups and tests. • Enter participation counts. • Place an additional order. • Create test sessions and assign students to online test sessions. NOTE: A separate user ID and password is required to access the Practice Center.

    37. Special Education State Assessments

    38. TAKS–Modified

    39. TAKS–MODIFIED • Very little to report about TAKS–M because it is being phased out. • Are there questions about TAKS–M I can address? (not STAAR . . . not yet).

    40. STAAR Modified?

    41. Modified Version of STAAR • Will cover the same content as the general STAAR assessments, but will be modified in format and design • Field-test items will be embedded in the modified assessments • Will reflect the same rigor and focus of the general assessments • Modified assessments will be developed for all content areas for grades 3-8 that are part of the STAAR program and for nine of the twelve EOC assessments.

    42. TAKS–Alternate

    43. TAKS–ALT TESTINGIRREGULARITIES

    44. Things to Remember Regarding Testing Irregularities • User names and passwords cannot be shared. • If the student’s grade-level is incorrect, the • student will receive the wrong assessment which • will result in a testing irregularity. • Only test administrators that have successfully • completed the required training can administer • TAKS–Alt. • No one but the test administrator can view • pages 2 and 3 of the documentation forms until • after April 15, 2011.

    45. Things to Remember Regarding Testing Irregularities • Teachers must use the state-required • documentation form to plan, record, and evaluate • the assessment. Failure to use the form will result • in a testing irregularity. • Coordinators must review the test security section • of the TAKS–Alt Manual for District and Campus • Testing Coordinators located on pages 15-20 with • test administrators. • If teachers submit an assessment with incorrect • student information, a testing irregularity will result.
