  6. Key Assessment Themes • DATA QUALITY—collaborative process between OAA and school/district staff to ensure accurate reporting of test results • TEST SECURITY—addition of new checks and processes to monitor appropriate administration of state-required tests

  7. Data Quality • Review of student level information using checklists (throughout year) • Test rosters • Student Data Review and Reporting (SDRR) Application • Pre-Reporting Data Review (August) • Data Review (14 days after public release)

  8. Test Security • Seating Charts will be required for all state-required test administrations. • Seating charts will begin with EXPLORE and PLAN administration in Fall 2012. • DAC will collect and maintain in case of potential investigations. • Templates will be provided.

  9. Test Security • Ensuring training of appropriate school/district staff in testing regulations: • Administration Code • Inclusion Regulation • Documentation of training (i.e., sign-in sheets, time, location, content) • Collections of signature sheets from Administration Code and Appropriate Practices forms (Focus on Fall Testing - EXPLORE/PLAN, EOC, COMPASS)

  11. Administration Code • Appropriate training required for anyone administering EXPLORE/PLAN or 1st EOC window • Signatures on Appropriate Practices Form and Administration Code • Seating charts that reflect everyone in each testing room (adults and students)

  12. Inclusion Regulation Update • 2009 Inclusion of Special Populations Regulation (EXPLORE/PLAN, EOC) • Updated regulation has two more Legislative committees to pass • Expected changes will come late September or early October • New training will be offered after regulation clears last hurdle • Immediate impact is EOC and ACCESS for ELLs®

  21. Prioritizing Your Data Review • School and districts may review all available student information. OAA encourages focus on these priorities. • Step 1 Accountability (Priority One) • Confirm your 100 day students that will contribute to your district or school accountability. • Indicate any non-100 day students that should be removed from your accountability. • Step 2 Demographics (Priority Two) • Check free-reduced lunch and students with disability status (IEP), since these have potential to change over time. • Confirm ethnicity and race categories.
