Topic: 2014-15 Extended Assessment Change Log Access for grades 3-8,11 at https://or.k12test.com/ Returning QAs and QTs will have access to the Secure Tests tab after they have completed required proficiency testing New QAs will need their QT to give them access to the Secure Tests and Data Entry tabs after they pass required proficiency tests (will be a hand-toggle by checking a box) If someone other than a QT or QA is designated to access the test materials and/or enter data, a current QT or QA will need to give them access to the Secure Tests and Data Entry tabs and provide guidance re ordering protocol The Secure Test tab will not be functional until the tests need to be distributed, on February 12, 2015 Explicit guidance will be provided on the Secure Tests tab regarding how to access the Secure Tests appropriately Until then, we have some general guidance for you… Topic: 2014-15 Extended Assessment Change Log When ordering forms, Assessors (or designate) will need to select: a grade the number of students in that grade (a different secure test form will be printed for each “order”, each with a FORM ID). Please note that this FORM ID will be required when entering data for a student(s) who has been administered that form. Test FORM IDs will be structured as follows: if the ID is "mth05_exrs1" this means that it is a math test (mth), grade 5 (05), with 'exrs' as a random identifier, and '1' as the test form number. When an Assessor has students in multiple grades, they will need to continue ordering for each grade (much like filling your shopping cart at Amazon.com) Topic: Smarter Balanced Test Session How-To Video http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=2744 ODE has developed this optional training video to help familiarize test administrators with using the TA Interface of OAKS Online to set up and manage a Smarter Balanced test session, as well as with the Student Interface. Using the practice tests available through the OAKS Portal, this video walks TAs through the process of setting up a test session and shows what students will see as they take the Smarter Balanced English language arts computer adaptive test (ELA CAT), ELA performance task (ELA PT), math CAT, and math PT. This video also introduces TAs to assigning available accessibility supports to individual students through the TA interface and demonstrates how students will use each of those supports when testing. Topic: Smarter Balanced Equation Editor Tool https://tds2.airws.org/EQTutorial/?c=SBAC_PT Coming soon to Oaksportal.org Topic: Smarter Balanced Interim Resources *ICA= Interim Comprehensive Assessment *IAB= Interim Assessment Block Q&A Time 1. Do you have any questions re: new Oregon Statewide Assessment Accessibility Supports? 2. Do you have any questions re: new 2014-15 Oregon Extended Assessment? 3. When/if any electronic translation device would be allowed on any of our state assessments? Q&A Time (Answer to question 3) Per Smarter Balanced: The non-embedded glossaries are for paper/pencil tests only. Each paper form has its own set of glossaries as the glossaries are created item-by-item and with the terms that the online version of the item would have (so only for construct irrelevant terms). The terms in the embedded/non-embedded glossary were carefully selected by grade so as not to provide information on construct relevant terms. An electronic glossary brought into the test environment would be problematic in that sense—thus the provision of embedded translated glossaries by Smarter Balanced Assessment. Q&A Time 4. Science teachers are asking how to meet the scientific inquiry work sample requirement (local performance assessment) when they have already fully converted their teaching to the NGSS. Guidance here? 5. OAKS will be offline on May 1 beginning at 3 PM. Is it possible to change this time to 5 PM so we do not lose testing time? Sharespace Topics Topics for future promising practices? What are districts doing to avoid creating multiple SSIDs for a single student? Please share your process with the field!
