  10. Home and Private School Board Rule R277-604 • State Costs for each test • DWA $15.00 • Summative SAGE - TBA

  11. Test Administration Manuals • Provide policy and procedure support for each assessment. • Give specific instructions for test administration – ensuring standardized testing environment.

  12. Utah eTranscript and Record Exchange (UTREx)

  13. Common Problems • Student does not pass UTREx validation • Missing SSID • Improper codes • Missing required information • Invalid dates • Courses are submitted to UTREx without teacher ID • Student marked as exited from courses • Data not submitted to UTREx or fails UTREx submission

  14. Student Data Exchanges - SAGE • Student is entered into local student information system (SIS) • SIS data is submitted to UTREx daily • Valid data is sent to TIDE nightly • Student data appears in TIDE the next day • TIDE data drives • SAGE Formative and Summative Rostering • SAGE Summative Test Assignment

  15. If a Student Doesn’t Show Up… • Check your SIS and make sure information is correct • Check validation reports in UTREx once data is submitted • utrexhelp@schools.utah.gov • Changes to SIS data should appear in TIDE within 4 days

  16. UTREx Point of Contacts • Who is managing UTREx submission for your LEA?

  26. Accommodations for Students with an IEP or 504 and Ell students.

  27. Calculation Device & Computation Table • As stated in the “Resources for All Students” section, a calculator device or computation table may be used during the calculator section of the mathematics assessment. If a student in grades 3-5 or 6 grade and above, during non-calculator sections of math, is provided a calculation device or a computation table, even if it is written as an accommodation in the student’s IEP, it will be considered a modification and the student’s assessment will be marked as modified. • By definition of a modified assessment, the assessment will be marked as a proficiency level of 1. • USOE must be notified if IEP teams determine the need for the use of a calculation device or computation table on a math assessment, to discuss the resulting modification and impact of that modification.

  28. Visual Representations • Visual Representations are manipulatives such as, cubes, tiles, rods, blocks, models, etc. • Visual representations may be used on all sections of the mathematics assessments if they are included in the student’s IEP or 504.  

  29. Braille • LEAs should notify the USOE if Braille is being used, but the use does not require approval.

  30. Large Print / Standard Sized Paper • Large Print: All text and graphic materials, including labels and captions on pictures, diagrams, maps, charts, exponential numbers, notes, and footnotes, must be presented in at least 18-point type for students who need large print. • Standard size paper: available on request for students with disabilities. On request, standard size paper can be provided at student’s school.

  31. Scribe • A student who experiences a debilitating injury just prior to testing that prevents him or her from being able to write may need a scribe. Scribes must have experience and understanding of how to effectively scribe for a student. • (Please refer to the Scribe Guidelines found on the USOE Assessment website: http://schools.utah.gov/assessment/Special-Needs.aspx.)

  32. Sign Language • Accommodation. Allowed for English language arts listening passages which have an embedded video of a human signing for students with disabilities with USOE authorization. Human signing on any portion of the ELA, Math or Science assessments is not allowed except for directions. • If human sign is allowed on the assessment, only a certified interpreter may sign statewide assessments.

  33. Tactile Graphics • Printstactilerepresentationsofgraphicsusingan externalembosserprinter.

  34. Tiger Embosser Training • When: February 7, 2014 • Time: 1:00 – 3:30 PM • Where: Hilda B. Jones Center 3605 S. 300 E. Salt Lake City, Utah • Presenters: • Jamison Hensley (Humanware) • Todd Vawdrey (USOE Assessment)

  35. SAGEAdministrationforELLs • ELL students enrolled before April 15 of current school year and who are new to the United States (first year of enrollment in any • U.S. school) and • ELL students enrolled on or after April 15 of previous school year must take the Science and Math SAGE tests (not counted in any UCAS calculation) • Non-Regulatory Guidance, May 2007

  36. 2014 SAGE Summative Training:Test Administration

  37. Flow of Data Admin/Teacher accounts must be created by the LEA through TIDE. Accounts to SAGE share a common login. This login grants access to TIDE, SAGE Formative, Summative, Interim, and the Online Reporting System. Does everyone here have a TIDE login?

  38. Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE) • Adding and Changing Student Data • LEA SIS to UTREx to TIDE • Classes and students are loaded from LEA student information systems by UTREx nightly • No manual addition of students • If a new student enters a school, their data must be in the local student information system, uploaded to UTREx, which uploads to TIDE.

  39. If a Student Doesn’t Show Up… • Check your SIS and make sure information is correct • Check validation reports in UTREx once data is submitted • utrexhelp@schools.utah.gov • Changes to SIS data should appear in TIDE within 4 days

  40. Test Assignment from UTREx Grade-Based Assessments • ELA 3-11 • Mathematics 3-8 • Science 4-8

  41. Test Assignment from UTREx Course-Based Assessments • Secondary Math I • Secondary Math II • Secondary Math III • Physics • Chemistry • Biology • Earth Science See SAGE Test Assignments for specific core codes http://schools.utah.gov/CURR/main/Course-Codes-and-Approval.aspx

  42. Testing Up In TIDE, a school or LEA user can assign a student a higher grade-level assessment. Example: 5th grade student can be assigned the 6th grade math test, if they have received 6th grade math instruction. A course-based assessment can only be assigned to students enrolled in that course (no override). Example: 8th grade student taking Secondary Math 1 must be enrolled in Secondary Math 1.

  43. 2014 SAGE Summative Testing Windows Note: The early testing is to accommodate ONLY the writing section of ELA. The adaptive testing section of ELA, the math and science assessments must be administered during the traditional six-week testing window.

  44. 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.

  45. Testing Time Estimates English Language Arts • 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

  46. Testing Sessions • LEAs to determine local testing schedules • 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 proctor who approves students to enter test sessions within the TA interface must be in the room with the students

  47. Example Testing Schedules

  48. Example Testing Schedules

  49. 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

  50. Pause Rule • Questions cannot be viewed or modified after test is paused for 20 minutes • Proctor can see amount of time paused on TA Interface • When the student logs back in, they will be returned to their last unanswered question, but cannot return to previously answered questions • The writing section of ELA has no pause rule
