  13. Regular Test Date Vs. Make-up • Students and parents need to understand there is ONE test date • Make-up day is not an optional test day… it is a day for someone who truly was sick or had an emergency • Do no advertise the make-up dates and push for everyone to test on the 1st testing date • Have a sign-up list for those wanting to test for meet-to-exceed (they will have priority over students who did not sign-up)

  43. For Incorrect Labeling • DO NOT attempt to remove the label • NEVER EVER black out the label INSTEAD: • Cover the incorrect pre-ID label with a blank white label. Then hand bubble the correct student information on the back of the answer document

  44. Students without Pre-ID Labels George Hunt Ms Smith Prickley Pear MS Tumbleweed USD If no label, leave this area blank and an adult must fill in grid on back…name on front and back must match!

  45. As Students Finish Testing • They should raise their hand • Verify they have filled out their name in their own handwriting on the front • Verify they started their final writing response on Page 2 • They must sign that they have turned in their tests

  48. Test Coordinator Site Training Training for Test Administrators and Proctors must include a thorough review of: • Test security procedures • Test administration procedures • Correct use of testing accommodations • Procedures for use of Pre-ID labels • Procedures for bubbling of student demographic data and use of standard accommodations • Handling unexpected or unusual situations

  49. To Ensure Test Validity • Test must be administered exactly as stated in Test Administration Direction • Scripted directions must be read verbatim Active Proctoring • Most errors that cost a student or school a score are avoidable if test administrators actively proctor • Check constantly to make sure students are testing in the correct session and using a pencil (no pen allowed) Standardized Test Administration
