Classroom Activities for the SBAC Performance
Tasks (Special Test Forms)
 Multiple test forms associated with each classroom
 Test forms will be automatically assigned through TIDE
and the Test Delivery System (Student Information
System must reflect true attending/resident
schools and district)
 Braille, American Sign Language (ASL), Spanish
Translation (math), and non-English glossaries (math)
are not available on all test forms.
 These designated supports and accommodations must be
entered in TIDE at least two days before testing
Performance Task Scenarios
 If a student moves to a new school after
starting a Smarter Balanced performance
task, and the new school is assigned a different
classroom activity than the original school, the
student will be assigned a new test form that
corresponds to the classroom activity assigned to
the new school.
 Please check with the student’s original school to
determine whether the student has already
completed a PT. If they have, the student does
not need to take a second PT.
Performance Task Scenarios
 If a student starts a performance task
assessment and then moves to a new school
before completing the performance task
assessment, the new school may want the
student to complete his or her original test
form rather than start a new test form that
corresponds to the classroom activity associated with
the new school. If this happens, please contact
your ESD partner to discuss having the original
performance task assessment form reassigned to the
Embedded Glossaries-Audio (math only)

ELPA Update
 Regular ELPA Practice Test was updated over
weekend to remove graphic response drag and drop
items and hot text sample items.

tested last year in middle and high school. Middle
and high school student will not receive these
graphics on the operational tests, but they are still on
the practice tests.
ELPA Update
 Please report technical issues to your Regional ESD
Partner. If reporting issues to AIR via email, copy
your Regional ESD Partner. You will be issued an
helpdesk ticket number, which will guide remaining
communications to fix the issue. AIR will close
tickets if contacts do not respond to follow-ups after
multiple attempts.
 All TAs: Do not send student identifiable
information via email as this is a FERPA violation.
ELPA21 Field Test

 Make sure participating TA, STC, and DTC roles sign
a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) prior to testing.
Training modules for the ELPA21 Field Test are on
the admin site, including a Surveymonkey for the
NDA, which leads to the PDUs that all participating
roles may receive (3 hours total) once they have
completed training.
