Language Arts

Grades 3 through 11

The pilot is at the end of the operational test. Students must not be told that these are pilot items!!! Items on the pilot will not be the same from one test booklet to another, so be sure students do not change test booklets while taking the pilot items—the last section of the test. In other words, be sure the last section is completely done in a single sitting.

  • Do not try to balance the number of pilot forms!

A Form Number must be bubbled in

on all answer documents!

Creating Teacher Answer Keys with Multiple Test Forms
  • If teachers make a key for self-scoring, they should do so based on the common items.
  • Do not use the appended pilot items.
  • The need to do this is greatly decreased

due to the quick turn around of raw scores

(5 days).

English Language Arts CRTs

This CRT is a grade specific test. Students should take the test that corresponds to the grade in which they are enrolled.

Example:

A ninth grade student takes the ninth grade CRT.

A junior enrolled in AP English takes the eleventh grade CRT.

Science CRT

For fourth through sixth grade students, this CRT is grade specific. Students should take the test that corresponds to the grade in which they are enrolled.

Example: A fifth grade student takes the fifth grade science CRT.

For secondary students, this CRT is course specific. Students should take the CRT at the completion of the course.

Example: Students enrolled in biology should take the biology CRT.

Remember!! There are a variety of science courses that are based on the same core curriculum, and must therefore take the same test!

Example: Biology, Human Biology, AP Biology and Agricultural Biology are all responsible to the same core curriculum. Therefore, all students enrolled in these courses should take the Biology CRT.

some policy issues
Some Policy Issues

Students are not required to take the same CRT more than once.

If a student takes two courses, two separate years (Chemistry, AP Chemistry) it is a local decision if the student is to retake the Chemistry CRT.

For the purposes of U-PASS and NCLB, the first time a student takes a course for which there is an associated CRT, the student is required to take that CRT.

The score/proficiency determination from CRTs will only be used from the first time the CRT was administered for a given course/grade.

Students may take the same CRT (course/grade) again and that test would be scored by USOE, however, this score would be excluded from all U-PASS and NCLB calculations.
