1. Overview
  • This year, we are running a Field Test of the
    PARCC exam, to prepare us for full-scale testing
    in the future.
  • Approximately 11 of our students will be tested.
  • 47 schools will be doing online testing.
  • 17 schools will be doing paper testing.
  • Students nor schools will receive scores.
  • Purposes of field test
  • To test the reliability of the items.
  • To test readiness and help prepare for future
    online testing on a mass scale.

Overview Schedule and Subjects
  • Schools testing PBA (Performance-Based
    Assessment) will test
  • March 24 April 25
  • Schools testing EOY (End of Year) will test
  • May 5 May 21
  • Schools who are testing both PBA and EOY
    Assessments.
  • PBA Assessment is March 24 April 11
  • EOY Assessment is May 5 May 21

Overview Roles
  • There is one Test Coordinator per school.
  • That person oversees the Test Administrators.
  • There should be one Test Administrator per test
    session.

  • All Test Administrators and Proctors must be
    trained prior to administering or monitoring a
    testing session.
  • See the Test Coordinator manuals on PearsonAccess
    for more detailed definitions and descriptions of
    who may serve in those roles.

Key Responsibilities of Field Test Coordinator
  • Be familiar with relevant manuals
  • Establish and communicate test schedule
  • Develop Security Plan, including Chain-of-Custody

Overview Test sessions
  • Each participating class will need to take the

    120 minutes depending on the class and session.
  • Extended time beyond the allotted session time is
    permitted for students with that accommodation.
  • Allow for
  • Each session must be done within one day.
  • Two sessions of a test may be done within one
    day, but not three in one day.
  • All students within the same grade level and
    subject must test on the same day.

8
Overview Test sessions
  • Example The third grade ELA test has three PBA
    sessions and two EOY sessions.
  • See the Test Coordinator Manual for Paper-based
    Testing for all grades.
  • The amount of time allotted for each test session
    consists of Session Time and Additional Time
    Allowed.
  • The total Field Test time includes any
    individual interruptions (e.g., bathroom breaks).

  • Security Protocols
  • Testing Protocols

11
Calculators
  • Tests for grades 3-5 do not involve use of a
    calculator.
  • All other grades have a calculator part of the
    math test, in which a calculator may be used.
  • Grades 6, 7 Four-function calculator with square
    root
  • Grade 8 Scientific calculator
  • High school Graphing calculator consistent with
    the TI-84.

12
Calculators and accommodations
13
Accommodations
  • Accommodations on IEPs, 504s, and ELLs require
    selection during student test registration.
  • Appendix G of the Coordinators manual, and
    Appendix D of the Administrators manual list
    accessibility features and accommodations and
    content area and tests permitted.
  • Accommodations that have been used must be
    indicated on the student registration record.

14
Read-Aloud
  • Is an Accessibility Feature for math.
  • Or Accommodation for ELA/Literacy Assessment.
  • A test administrator giving a Read-Aloud will
    need a Proctor Authorization Ticket in order to
    access the test administrator copy of the test.

15
Accommodations Documentation
  • There is much information on accessibility and
    accommodations in the manuals and training
    modules at PearsonAccess.
