overview
Overview
  • These training materials are based on the 2012-2013 End-of-Course Assessments Test Administration Manual andare available at www.FLAssessments.com/EOC.
  • You will receive new manuals for the 2013-2014 Winter/Spring/Summer EOC’s but this will be your only training for all EOC’s this year.
overview1
Overview

These training materials highlight important information for computer-based test administrations and the use of paper-based accommodations. Not all information from the test administration manual is included in this presentation, so district and school staff must read and familiarize themselves with all information in the manual, in addition to using these training materials.

eoc test administration schedule
EOC Test AdministrationSchedule

Scheduling

  • The Fall EOC test administration window is

September 16th – 27th.

  • Subjects must be tested in the following order:
    • U.S. History Sept. 16-17
    • Biology 1 Sept. 18-19
    • Algebra 1 Sept. 20, 23-24
    • Geometry Sept. 25-26
  • All testing for a single subject must be completed for your school before testing for the next subject may begin. You DO NOT have to wait for the entire district to be complete one subject to begin a new EOC.
  • All Paper Based Tests must be given on Day 1 of each testing window. Pick up will be day 2.
  • NO transcriptions will be allowed this year.
eoc test administration schedule1

Scheduling

  • Since the testing window allows for multiple test sessions to be scheduled throughout the week, schools may reassign absent students to an existing session scheduled later in the week rather than creating separate make-up sessions.
eoc test administration schedule2
EOC Test AdministrationSchedule

Testing Duration

  • Each EOC Assessment will be administered in one 160-minute session with a scheduled 10-minute break after 80 minutes. Students are not allowed to talk during the break. Individual restroom breaks are permitted as needed.
  • Any student who has not completed the test by the end of the allotted time may continue working; however, testing must be completed within one school day.
  • New for 2013-2014: Students may be dismissed from the testing room at the END of the first 80 minutes BEFORE the 10-minute break. The script you are using for FALL will need to be modified to give the ‘after testing option’ you have chosen BEFORE the break. However, no special incentives should be given to students to encourage them to finish early.

Testing Rules Acknowledgment

  • All EOC assessments include a Testing Rules Acknowledgment that reads, “I understand the testing rules that were just read to me. If I do not follow these rules, my test score may be invalidated.” Language about social media is being added and will show on the acknowledgement soon.
  • Prior to testing, students must acknowledge the testing rules that the test administrator reads to them by checking a box (in TestNav) or clicking a circle (in TestHear) next to the statement. Students taking a paper-based test will sign below the acknowledgment.

Electronic Practice Assessment Tools (ePATs)

  • The computer-based practice tests, also called Electronic Practice Assessment Tools or ePATs, and scripts for administering ePATs are posted separately at www.FLAssessments.com/ePATsfor school staff, as well as students and their parents/guardians, to access at their convenience. Students should be made aware that they can access ePATs on their own at this location. The ePAT scripts are no longer included in the test administration manual.
  • Schools must administer the appropriate practice test(s) to all students to be tested using the ePAT scripts; however, if a student has previously participated in an ePAT for the subject test he or she will take, the student is not required to participate in an ePAT session.

Return Test Materials to Your District Assessment Coordinator

Mispackaged materials will delay reporting of student results.

  • Verify that all distributed secure materials have been returned. Complete your Chain of Custody form. Notify your district assessment coordinator immediately if any secure materials are missing.
  • Check for and remove any stray reference sheets or periodic tables from the test and answer books.
  • Make copies of the records of required administration information.
  • Make copies of all Security Logs and seating charts and file the copies.
  • If a test has been invalidated, verify that the DNS bubble has been gridded and that the document is placed with TO BE SCORED materials.

Verify that the DNS bubble has been gridded on a defective document and that the document is placed with NOT TO BE SCORED materials.

Verify that no DNS bubble has been gridded by mistake. If it has, verify that the DNS bubble has been erased and the UNDO bubble has been gridded and place the document with TO BE SCORED materials.

  • Use the cover sheets to separate test materials for return.
