  5. What’s New and General Updates • Assembly Bill (AB) 484 (Bonilla) contains responses to ten of the twelve SSPI recommendations. • AB 484 does not address the recommendations regarding the future of the CAHSEE and the use of matriculation exams.

  6. Overview of CAHSEE

  7. CAHSEE Purpose • Improve student achievement in public high schools and ensure that students who graduate from public high schools can demonstrate competency in reading, writing, and mathematics

  8. CAHSEE Content • The CAHSEE has two parts: • English-language arts (ELA) • State content standards up to grade ten • Mathematics • State content standards in grades six, seven, and Algebra I

  9. CAHSEE Requirement • All students, except for eligible students with disabilities, must satisfy the CAHSEE requirement, as well as all other state and local requirements, to receive a California public high school diploma.

  10. CAHSEE Requirement • The CAHSEE requirement can be satisfied by passing the examination, or for eligible students with disabilities, meeting the exemption requirement pursuant to California Education Code Section (EC) 60852.3, receiving a local waiver according to EC 60851(c).(1), or by applying for a CAHSEE streamlined waiver pursuant to EC Section 56101.

  14. Maintaining Test Security

  15. Maintaining Test Security • To ensure test security, LEA coordinators must: • Read, agree, sign, and return the Test Security Agreement to ETS • Ensure all test site coordinators read and sign the Test Security Agreement and all who have access to the secure test materials should also read, sign and agree to the Test Security Affidavit

  16. Maintaining Test Security (Continued)

  17. Maintaining Test Security (Continued)

  18. Maintaining Test Security (Continued) • Keep materials in secure, locked storage • Establish and maintain procedures that will prevent cheating • All test examiners, proctors, and other school personnel must be properly trained; they must also sign and submit a Test Security Affidavit • The wide use of cell phones and text messaging requires test examiners and proctors to be extremely vigilant • The return of test booklets and materials must be monitored closely

  19. Maintaining Test Security (Continued) • It is important to inform students before and during testing that if they are found cheating or to have compromised the security of the examination, their test results may be invalidated.

  20. Maintaining Test Security (Continued) • Compromising the security of this examination includes the use of cell phones, electronic pagers, music players, and all other electronic devices during the test administration. • If any of these devices are used, for example, to take pictures of CAHSEE test materials to post on social media Web sites, then test results may be invalidated and not scored.

  21. Maintaining Test Security (Continued) • Handle potential testing irregularities. Call ETS and the CDE to report security breaches or test administration incidents • Cooperate with GCS Field Research (formerly Global Compliance Services) when they conduct security audits: • Before-testing • During-testing • After-testing
