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
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
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.
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.

Scanning Items It should take you to a screen similar to this. Click on Scan All scanners provided by PC Pal Solutions are plug and play. Simply remove the scanner from the packaging and plug the cord to base station into a USB port on you computer. Base stations for wireless scanners will also need to be connected to an appropriate power source. The Scan menu is the starting point for accessing all scan related functions in iTrackTAKS. Many of the scan related functions are optional. If you are unsure of which scan types you need to perform, contact Testing Department.
Click on Scan Items Into Inventory Items scanned from the Scan Items Into Inventory screen are simply logged into inventory at the location which the user performing the scan belongs. Once you have navigated to the appropriate scan screen, you can scan an item by pointing the scanner a the item’s barcode and pressing the button on the scanner. A beep indicates a successful scan. A raspberry tone indicates a scan that was unsuccessful or a wireless scanner that is out of range. Safe operating range of wireless scanners may vary depending on the scanning environment but in cases is 20 to 30 feet in any direction from the base station. If you are experiencing difficulty scanning items, check to make sure the scanner is still connected to the appropriate USB port. Let’s simulate a few scans. Scan Operation Code (6): Received by Campus, Begin Scanning Scan List ID:30, Scan List Name: Real time Scan – Mrs. T. Nino Campus Coordinator 11:56:53 AM.
This is what you’ll see when you scan something. Scan Operation Code (6): Received by Campus, Begin Scanning Scan List ID:30, Scan List Name: Real time Scan – Mrs. T. Nino Campus Coordinator 11:56:53 AM. The barcode of the item we scanned appeared in the main portion of the screen and the Count field shows 1. As you continue to scan items the Count field will show the total number of scans since the last time the Submit button was clicked. Don't worry if you accidentally scan an item multiple times. The item will only be "counted" once.
Submitting or clearing items. Items that you have scanned into iTrackTAKS will not be processed until you click the Submit button in the bottom of the screen. For this reason, it is imperative that you click the Submit button frequently. We do not recommend that you scan more than 100 items without clicking the Submit button as unsubmitted scans could be lost in the unlikely event of a power or network failure. By looking at the Count field, you can see that we have scanned 12 items. You can process all of the scanned barcodes by clicking the Submit button or clear the barcodes without processing them by clicking the Clear button. It is important to note that if you exit a scan screen without processing scanned items, the items will be processed automatically as if you clicked the Submit button.
Click the Submit button. You will see a progress bar showing that the scan was processed successfully and count will be reset to zero (0). Real Time Scan – Maria T. Nino Campus Coordinator – 8/18/2009 2:00:30 PM Processed Success
Scanning a range of items. It's also possible to process a range of items by scanning the starting and ending barcodes on the appropriate Assembly ID sheet. This feature is extremely useful when you want to process items without removing them from shrink-wrap packaging. The Range check box is available on all scan related screens. Simply click the Range check box to indicate you are scanning a range. Once the Range check box is selected, simply scan the starting and ending barcode on the Assembly ID sheet. It does not matter if you scan the ending barcode first so long as you scan the starting barcode next. Individual items that are scanned when the range check box is selected will not be processed and vice-versa. Once you have completed scanning ranges, click the Submit button to process the scan.
