Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)
  • There are no changes to the Annual Measurable
    Objectives for this year.
  • NCLB requires states to assess progress in
    science once at each level elementary, middle,
    and high school beginning in 2007-08.
  • Wisconsin already met this requirement at 4, 8,
    and 10.
  • Science will not be an AYP content objective
    unless this is added as a part of NCLB
    reauthorization in the future.

    or the complete WAA-SwD not parts of both.
  • The WKCE is for students whose instruction is
    based on the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards.

WSAS Resources
  • WSAS Frequently Asked Questions
    http//dpi.wi.gov/oea/faq.doc
  • WKCE web page http//dpi.wi.gov/oea/w
    kce.html
  • WAA-SwD web page http//dpi.wi.gov/oea/waa.html
  • Assessment Accommodations Matrix
    http//dpi.wi.gov/oea/pdf/accom08.pdf
  • Publications (DAC Guide/Policy Manual, Test
    Administration Manual, Student/Parent Pre-Test
    Information Brochure, etc.) http//dpi.wi.gov/oea
    /publications.html

16
Test Security
  • The primary goal of WSAS test security is to
    protect the integrity of the examinations by
  • Securing the test materials at all times Before,
    during, and after testing
  • Ensuring appropriate administration of the test
    such as inventory of test books at all times,
    securing test in a locked room when not in use,
    etc.

17
Test Security Training
  • The OEA has developed two media site training
    modules which are available at http//dpi.wi.gov/o
    ea/webcasts.html.
  • DAC Version - a district overview of test
    security and the procedures involved.
  • Proctor version - can be utilized by DACs or SACs
    to improve the overall understanding of test
    security procedures and to emphasize the
    importance of test security with Proctors and
    School Staff. (approximately 10 minutes in length)

18
Consequences of Test Security Violations
  • Invalidation of test results for individual
    students or groups of students.
  • This will result in
  • Parents receiving no scores on their childs
    report if a test is invalidated
  • Public reporting on WINSS will reflect all
    invalidated tests as not tested. This may
    reduce the percentage of students meeting
    proficiency.
  • Schools may have a more difficult time meeting
    Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) indicators as a
    result.

19
Test Security Specific to the WAA-SwD
  • Teachers may have access to the WAA-SwD prior to
    administration in order to prepare necessary
    accommodations.
  • Teachers administering the WAA-SwD may maintain
    possession of individual student tests and
    administration guides until all content areas are
    complete.
  • ALL test booklets and answer documents must be
    returned. Districts CANNOT keep a copy of the
    WAA-SwD.
  • Each CESA will retain one copy for reference

20
Confidentiality Agreement Forms
Confidentiality Agreement Forms are available at
http//dpi.wi.gov/oea/dacforms.html
21
Report Security Concerns!
  • Report concerns regarding test security to the
    Office of Educational Accountability at
    (608) 267-1072.
  • OEA will investigate and follow up on all
    reported incidents.
  • Ensuring adequate test security training will
    reduce the number of inadvertent errors which
    occur.

22
State Law Test Access Rules
  • The state superintendent shall make available
    upon request, within 90 days after the date of
    administration, any examination required to be
    administered under this section. This subsection
    does not apply while the examination is being
    developed or validated.
  • s.118.30(3)
  • For more information about Test Security is
    available on the OEA website at
    http//dpi.wi.gov/oea/kc_ethic.html
  • Any individual viewing the test must sign a
  • Confidentiality Agreement Form

23

    prior WKCE state writing assessments from grades
    4, 8 and 10.
  • These items will not be used again on the state
    assessment and may, therefore, be used in
    Wisconsin for professional development, improving
    instruction, and student practice.

34
Which set of standards should be used to guide
content-based instruction?
IEP Teams should start considering these
questions no later than the end of 1st grade, so
that instruction can be provided in 2nd grade.
One way to assist the IEP Team in the
decision-making process is to compare the
curricular expectations across grades in the
Assessment Frameworks and the Extended Grade Band
Standards. Then consider the following question
Does the students present level of academic and
functional performance permit participation and
completion of general education curriculum (with
accommodations and/or significant program
modifications if needed)?
