Annual TOP Audit
15
Purposes of Audit
  • To examine TOP training/rating effectiveness and
    provide feedback to districts and ESCs
  • To monitor validity/reliability of TOP system on
    an annual basis

16
Who Was Audited in Spring 2006
  • 25 of the states 55 TOP training entities
  • Among the 25 entities, 411 districts were
    represented

The 55 entities are made up of ? the 35
districts with the largest LEP populations ? the
20 regional service centers (minus those 35
districts)
17
What Audited Districts Did
  • Completed testing coordinator and rater surveys
  • Submitted writing collections for specified
    students to TEA (about 14,000 in all)

18
What TEA Did
  • Compiled and summarized the survey input
  • Trained state raters to re-rate the 14,000
    writing collections
  • Conducted analytic scoring of the re-rated
    collections when the ratings of the districts and
    state raters were not the same
  • Reviewed the writing collections for correct
    assembly procedures

19
What TEA Will Do
  • Select writing collections to use in future
    training materials
  • Provide the 25 entities with feedback on the
    audit results
  • Inform all school districts of the audit results
  • Submit the audit results in federal monitoring
    reports

20
Spring 2007 Audit
  • Most or all of the remaining training entities
    will be audited.
  • Some entities may be re-audited.

21
New TOP Procedures
22
Ensuring Rating Accuracy
  • Districts and campuses will be required to
    document the procedures they follow for ensuring
    the accuracy of TOP ratings
  • Rating support procedures
  • Rating verification procedures

23
Verifying Writing Collection Assembly
  • Paraprofessionals will not be authorized by TEA
    to perform the verifiers checks.

24
RPTE II
25
How Will RPTE II Differ?
  • Title III of NCLB requires English language
    proficiency tests to emphasize the ability to
    read, write, listen, and speak in core content
    areas (math, science, social studies, etc.).
  • So more of the reading assessed on RPTE II will
    be directly aligned to reading ELLs do in these
    content areas.
  • A Grade 2 RPTE test will be added.
  • RPTE II is planned to be an online assessment.

26
Planned Events
  • Spring 2007 Last administration of RPTE Iand a
    separate online RPTE II field test of
    approximately 1/3 of the states ELLs (Grades
    2-12)
  • Spring 2008 Implementation of RPTE II (paper
    format), with a separate online field test of
    approximately 2/3 of the states ELLs
  • Spring 2009RPTE II is given exclusively online

Online in 2009!
27
Anything New with TAKS?
28
New with TAKS
  • TEKS revisions in math are being applied to TAKS
    test construction in that whats no longer
    eligible to be taught will not be on a test.
  • TEKS revisions in language arts to occur this
    year will likely affect TAKS test construction in
    future years, but not this year.
  • The Spanish TAKS tests are no longer
    question-by-question translations.

29
Anything New with LAT Math?
  • The LAT testing procedures for math are planned
    to be the same as last year.
  • Math teachers and LPACs should be documenting the
    linguistic accommodations recent immigrants need
    in daily instruction.
  • Linguistic accommodations should be part of the
    routine daily instruction of these students.

TELPAS and AMAOs
  • TELPAS is used in the AMAO accountability system
    for ELLs. Under NCLB, states must show annual
    increases in the progress ELLs make in learning
    English and in attaining English language
    proficiency.
  • Our progress goal is to evaluate the percent of
    ELLs making at least one proficiency level of
    progress a year.
  • Our attainment goal is to evaluate the percent of
    ELLs reaching the Advanced High proficiency level.

AMAOs are Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives
