2014 SAGE Summative:Certificate of Readiness • Six Tasks to complete before SAGE Summative Testing … • Complete today’s SAGE Summative Training • Submit your school’s Testing Schedules • Schedule a “System Check” • Conduct and Report the “System Check” • Train teachers and students to use SAGE Summative • Sign and submit the “Certificate of Readiness” verification form. • Questions?
Components of SAGE Summative • Three (3) Main Components of SAGE Summative: • TDS: Test Delivery System • Teachers, School Test Coordinators, and Principals • Test Administrator (Teacher) Interface • Student Interface • TIDE: Test Information Distribution Engine • School Test Coordinators and Principals • Managing Users • Viewing Student Lists • ORS: Online Reporting System • School Test Coordinators and Principals • Managing Participation Reports • Who has not “STARTED” SAGE Summative tests • Who has not “COMPLETED” SAGE Summative tests • # of students who have not started or not completed SAGE Summative tests
Today’s SAGE Summative Training for Test Coordinators and Administrators • Important Information about SAGE Summative Assessments • Administering SAGE Summative Assessments and Training Tests via the Test Delivery System (TDS) • Students’ Access to SAGE Summative Tests and Training Tests via the Test Delivery System (TDS) • Managing Users and Student Lists using the Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE) • Tracking Students’ participation and progress in SAGE Summative tests using the Online Reporting System (ORS)
2014 SAGE Summative Training:Important Information About SAGE Summative Assessments Test Coordinators and Administrators Feb. 18, 19, 2014
Two Types of Summative SAGE Assessments Grade-Based Assessments • ELA 3-11 • Mathematics 3-8 • Science 4-8 Course-Based Assessments • Secondary Math I • Secondary Math II • Secondary Math III • Physics • Chemistry • Biology • Earth Science
Testing Time Estimates Every student must be given sufficient time to complete each SAGE Summative test. Make-up and completion sessions must be scheduled to allow students to complete testing. Many students will complete testing within the estimated times.
Testing Time Estimates English Language Arts Writing • Elementary Writing Section - up to 90 minutes • Secondary Writing Section – approx. 90 minutes Reading, Listening and Language Section • Elementary – approx. 90 minutes • Secondary – approx. 90 minutes Mathematics and Science – approx. 90 minutes each
Testing Sessions • Testing schedules within the testing window are determined by schools. • All tests may be split among multiple testing sessions/class periods • Students may pause the test at any time • Students will begin on day 2, where they left on day 1 • Students will NOT be able to change answers on previous day’s work • The teacher (proctor) who approves students to enter test sessions within the TA interface must be in the room with the students.
Timeout Rule • A student’s test will log out after 30 minutes of inactivity • Any activity by the student will prevent their test from timing out (e.g., mouse movement) • After the test times out, the pause rule begins
Pause Rule • Questions cannot be viewed or changed after test is paused for 20 minutes • The Teacher (Proctor) can see amount of time paused on TA Interface • When the student logs back in, they will be returned to their first unanswered question, but cannot return to previously answered questions • The writing section of ELA has no pause rule.
Defining Participation A student must answer at least 6 questions to be considered a “participant” in the assessment. A student must finish the assessment to receive a score.
Opt-Out Language • Refused to Test • Student is considered a participant in the test • Score marked as non-proficient • Impact data will be reviewed in the future
Adaptive Testing • The adaptive testing engine used for SAGE Summative assessments will be more robust in 2014-2015. • This operational field test sets the baseline for student achievement and growth going forward. • Student-level scores will be provided and used for accountability.
First Year - 2014 In order to provide the data needed to create the vertical scale, students will see items from lower and higher grades. These items will not be included in student scores.
ELA and Literacy Two Sections: • Reading, Language, Listening • Writing
ELA and Literacy Reading • Single and Paired Passages • No text-to-speech for passages, or excerpts from passages in items • Literary/Informational ratio follows Core Listening • Short (1 min) passages: dialogue, discussion, etc. Language • Edit draft passage of student writing • Vocabulary
ELA and Literacy Writing Student writing will draw on information and evidence from passages Two Compositions: • Opinion/Argument – longer response • Informative/Explanatory – shorter response
Mathematics Grades 3-8, Secondary I, Secondary II, Secondary III • All items aligned to the Utah Core Standards • Range of DOK and Elements of Rigor across all Domain, Clusters, and Standards
First year - 2014 Math Linking Items • Grade 5: Short calculator segment at the end of test. Can ONLY use onscreen calculator. • Grade 7: Students may have a short non-calculator segment at the beginning of test.
Elementary Mathematics Grades 3-4: Calculator NOT allowed. • Not available on screen • Bringing a calculator or a calculation table is a modification. (Jordan District does not allow modified testing.) • Based on the Utah State Standards, students in these grades need to build basic computation skills and knowledge.
Elementary Mathematics • Reference sheets will no longer be available or necessary for the grades 3-6 Elementary Math SAGE. • Any tested standard requiring students to apply a specific formula will have the formula embedded in the item. • Standards that state: “Apply the formula”
Secondary Mathematics • Reference sheets will no longer be available or necessary for Secondary Math SAGE. • Any item that is appropriate for students to have a formula will have the formula embedded in the item. • Calculator will be available on the test • Student may bring in and use a calculator that was used during classroom instruction. • No phone or internet capable calculators are permitted.
Reviewing ItemsMath Grade 6 Segment Some math tests are divided into calculator-allowed, and calculator-not allowed segments. When the first segment is completed, and the second segment started, students cannot return to review items from the first segment.
Science • All items aligned to a Standard, Objective, and ILO • DOK 1-4 items spread across all Standards and Objectives • Moving toward a 40%-60% split between MC and CR items for each student • Simulations allow for in-depth, experiment-like conditions allowing assessment of science skills in a setting approximating authenticity
Science • Calculators allowed for all tests • Students may use a calculator they are familiar with • A scientific calculator will be provided as an on-line tool • No phone or internet capable calculators are permitted • Reference sheets are available for Chemistry and Physics • Download and use throughout the year • http://www.schools.utah.gov/assessment/Adaptive-Assessment-System/Science.aspx; http://sageportal.org • Chemistry reference sheet displays periodic table
Training Test Purposes • Familiarize students and teachers with the design, format, procedures, accessibility features of the items found in the SAGE Summative assessments • Allow students to identify test setting preferences, schools can set those settings in advance of testing • Use the secure browser to certify that local technology configurations can deliver SAGE Summative assessments (e.g., network, hardware)
Item Types / Response Mechanism Machine scored constructed response (MSCR) • Equation Response • Matching • Graphic Response • Hot Spot Response • Drag and Drop Response • Evidence-based selected response (EBSR) Multiple Choice • Single select • Multiple select Constructed Response • Short Response • Extended Writing
Hardware Requirements • Headphones and keyboards are required for all students on all tests • External keyboards for recently purchased iPads have been ordered for schools • Headphones (elem.) and Earbuds (sec.) have been ordered for schools
