  1. TELPAS 2014

  2. This training does NOT replace the requirement of reading the 2014District and Campus Coordinator Manual and the TELPAS Manual.

  3. Test Security and Confidentiality Requirements Maintaining the confidentiality of the TELPAS program involves protecting the contents of all online assessments and student performance documentation. This requires compliance with, but is not limited to, the following guidelines: • Before handling secure test materials, all testing personnel who meet the requirements to participate in state testing must undergo training and must sign the appropriate security oath affirming that they understand what is considered confidential. • Before accessing the secure online administrative features of the Assessment Management System, trained and qualified testing personnel who will be administering online assessments must first read and accept a statement of confidentiality. • All tests must be administered in strict accordance with the instructions contained in the test administration materials.

  4. Test Security and Confidentiality Requirements • No person may view, reveal, or discuss the contents of an online assessment before, during, or after a test administration unless specifically authorized to do so by the procedures outlined in the test administration materials. If circumstances necessitate that an online assessment be examined, permission MUST first be obtained from TEA. • No person may duplicate, print, record, write notes about, or capture by any electronic means any portion of a secure assessment instrument without prior approval from TEA. • No individuals other than students during an assessment may respond to test items. • No person may review or discuss student responses or student performance data during or after a test administration unless specifically authorized to do so by the procedures outlined in the test administration materials.

  5. Definitions • What are the ELPS? Federally required instructional standards designed to ensure that ELLs are taught the academic English they need for school purposes • What is TELPAS? A federally required assessment program designed to measure the annual progress that ELLs make in learning academic English • What are TELPAS raters? Teachers trained to assess ELLs for TELPAS

  6. Assessment components for grades K–1 and 2–12 • Grades K–1 • Holistically rated observational assessments of listening, speaking, reading, and writing • Grades 2–12 • Holistically rated observational assessments of listening and speaking • Holistically rated writing collections • Multiple-choice online reading tests in six grade clusters: 2, 3, 4–5, 6–7, 8–9, 10–12

  7. Spring 2014 online training components ● Online Basic Training Course (Required for New Raters) ▪ One for raters of K–1 students and one for raters of grades 2 and above →Includes rating activities to give raters opportunities to practice applying the rubrics (no state-required level of accuracy established) ● Online Calibration (Required for New and Returning Raters) ▪ Separate calibration activities for K–1, 2, 3–5, 6–8, 9–12 → There are 3 sets and each set contains 10 students → Rater needs to rate at least 70 percent of the students correctly in a set to demonstrate sufficient calibration ● Assembling and Verifying Grades 2–12 Writing Collections ▪ Optional course that may be used to supplement test administrator procedures training

  8. Security Oaths All district and campus personnel who participate in state-mandated testing and/or handle or view secure test materials or confidential information must meet the eligibility requirements and be trained and sign a security oath. Any person who has more than one testing role (e.g., a TELPAS rater who also serves as a reading test administrator) must receive appropriate training and sign a security oath for each role. Security oaths for TELPAS raters, writing collection verifiers, and test administrators can be found in Appendix A. NOTE: Any person who serves as a test administrator, even as a relief for a regular test administrator, must receive appropriate training and sign the test administrator oath. Each oath for TELPAS raters, writing collection verifiers, and test administrators must be read and completed after training and before handling or viewing any secure test materials or confidential information. Oaths must be returned to the campus coordinator and will be kept on file in the district for at least five years.

  17. 8.0 Test Management Overview Click on Register Student 2014 Spring TELPAS Grades K-12 The primary test management activities are registering students and managing test sessions. This guide will help you: ■register students, manage registered groups, assign students to paper and online tests; ■update registration demographic data; ■view student counts by administration and online test sessions; ■add registered students to a test session; ■manage test sessions; and ■proctor test sessions. As a reminder, terminology used to describe actions for students in the system includes: ■ Students are enrolled in a campus. ■ Students are registered for a test administration. ■Students are assigned to a group. ■Students are assigned to a test.

  18. 8.1 Register StudentsRegister students to receive precoded materials (for paper tests, when available), assign students to online test sessions, and assign students for educator-entered performance evaluations. All students who are testing should be registered.You register a student for a specific test administration (e.g., March TAKS exit level, STAAR Alternate, TELPAS, STAAR 3–8, etc.).Before you add or change a student registration, check that the student is enrolled in a campusand that the group in which the student is assigned is correct. Students must be enrolled in one or more campuses before they can be registered for a test administration. After you register students, you may assign them to an existing or a new group and assign them to a test. Students are automatically assigned to a group for the STAAR Alternate administration, and test assignments are also automatic in some administrations. For information on how to manage online test sessions, refer to section 8.2.

  19. 8.1.1 Viewing Student Registration Students typically are already enrolled in a campus, registered for an administration, and assigned to groups by means of a submitted student data file. You will need to register a student only if student data are being entered manually. To check if a student is registered and to verify a test assignment, follow the steps below: 1. Go to Test Management > Register Students. 2. Select “Registered Students” or “Unregistered Students” from the View By options set. You will need to enter search criteria to see a listing of students or click the “Show All Students” checkbox. (Refer to Appendix A for how to perform an advanced search.) 3. Select “Current Organization” or “All Organizations” from the Search options set to view students across all organizations. You will need to enter search criteria or click the “Show All Students” checkbox. If you select “All Organizations,” you must enter search criteria. NOTE: For the TELPAS and STAAR Alternate administrations only, you will be able to view student details and assigned tests for registered students within and outside of your district, but you will not have edit access or the ability to assign or remove groups outside your district or assign or remove tests for students outside of your district. However, for TELPAS, you can move reading test assignments from another organization (a district or campus) to your own organization 4. After completing a search, click a student name to view registration details or to register an unregistered student.

  20. 8.1.2 Registering Students There are two ways to register a student. Typically, registration occurs when a student data file is submitted to the system. Refer to section 6.0 for information on submitting a student data file. There are times, however, when a student might not be registered for a test administration. For example, if a student transfers to a campus at the beginning of the test administration window, then the student probably is not registered to test. If that is the case, refer to section 8.1.3.

  21. 8.1.3 Registering an Unregistered Student 1. Go to Test Management > Register Students. 2. Select “Unregistered Students” from the View By options set.

You can manage multiple student registrations at one time with groups and assign multiple students to a test at one time with groups. A student must have a group assignment before the student can be assigned to a test session. Groups are a convenient way to put students into an online testing session. A group is typically a class, such as SMITH ALGEBRA I. Some administrations do not require you to assign a test (e.g., for STAAR Alternate at grades 3–8 only, subject tests are automatically assigned), but all students must be assigned to a group before they can test. It is not required to assign students to a group for STAAR Alternate because the group assignment is done automatically when the students are registered for the test administration.
