Subjects & Grades Assessed
purposes why acs
Purposes (Why ACS)
  • Measure student performance on the assessed standards/ skills
  • Enable teachers to target students for appropriate instructional interventions
  • Provide overall ACS results in a manner similar to CST results
  • Allow teacher self-study of standards/objectives taught
  • Allow monitoring of the delivery and pacing of the adopted curriculum
acs features
ACS Features
  • The assessments are aligned to the California State Standards
  • The tests are NOT timed. Students should be able to complete the test in a 50-minute class period. Extra time may be given for students continuing to make progress toward test completion after the end of the class period.
  • Test booklets are re-usable. Scanners are provided. No writing in test booklets
acs features special notes
ACS Features – Special Notes
  • No calculators are allowed on the mathematics tests. (ELA too)
  • The ACS ELA assessments are an adaptation of the Cluster Tests included in the California Standards Manager.
    • The tests consisted of some open-ended items that would require teacher scoring. To alleviate the burden upon teachers, such items were converted to multiple-choice items
    • To enhance the validity of the test, the item sequence is changed and includes items from all four units taught prior to each administration (not cumulative).
acs scoring reporting
ACS - Scoring & Reporting
  • Score and reporting of student performance on tested standards will be available within a few weeks after each testing period is completed.
  • Teachers will be able to access their class report using the AIS (Assessment Information System). The AIS will provide results for each student tested in the class.
  • School Site Administrators will receive an electronic pdf (Portable Document Format) of school results for each teacher. They will also receive districtwide comparisons in a pdf report.
  • Each test is aligned to the state content standards covered during the time period preceding the test, therefore each round of testing is independent from the others.
acs accommodations
ACS - Accommodations
  • Students in special education programs with Individualized Education Plans (IEP) and students with current plans under Section 504 are allowed accommodations, which must be specified in the plans, such as ..
    • Large print
    • Braille
    • Use of Reader
  • Testing accommodations may be made for EL students and may include extended time to take the test with a bilingual proctor (who may read the instructions and answer procedural questions), and testing in a small group setting.
  • If you need help in making large print editions or other special editions of the tests, please contact the REA ACS coordinator.

test administration procedures
Test Administration Procedures
  • Put a Do Not Disturb sign on the door.
  • Encourage students to perform as well as they can.
  • Make sure that each student has a #2 pencil.
  • Give each student his/her pre-printed (or hand-bubbled) answer sheet.
  • Give each student the appropriate test booklet.
  • Hand Bubble answer sheets for students not on roster or to make changes
supervision during testing be alert to the following
Supervision During TestingBe alert to the following:
  • Students who do not have their correct answer sheet.
  • Check that students are making uniform dark marks and are erasing completely.
  • Have students erase any stray marks on answer sheets.
  • If students are marking their place, it is possible to redirect students who are marking answers next to the wrong response number.
  • To keep costs down, we need to reuse the test booklets. Please do not let students make any marks on test booklets.
  • We want an accurate assessment, so watch for students who appear to be looking elsewhere for answers whether it's to other desks, their lap, etc.
  • Students with unapproved materials on their desks (materials approved in IEPs or 504 plans are ok)
