    Grades 3-8, is used for all students in those
    grades taking the GAA.

8
SDIF for High School
9
SDIF for High School
Must use the High School form
  • Be certain that the SDIF form marked High School

10
SDIF for High School Retest
11
SDIF for High School Retest
Must use the High School Retest form
  • Be certain that the SDIF form marked High School

12
Updates for the 2013-2014 Administration
  • Two different Electronic Entry Sheets are being
    used in the 2013-2014 administration of the GAA
  • The Entry Sheet for Kindergarten, Grades 3-8,
    and High School
  • The Entry Sheet for High School Retest
    (GPS-Only)

13
Electronic Entry Sheet for grades K, 3-8, and
High School
Must use the K, 3-8, HS Entry Sheet
  • If submitting a blue binder for students in K,
    Grades 3-8, and High School (1st time tester),
    the K, Grades 3-8, HS Entry Sheet must be
    used.
  • This entry sheet should also be used for
    retesters who were assessed for the first time in
    High School during the 2012-2013 administration
    year.

14
Electronic Entry Sheet for High School Retest GPS

15
Reminders for the High School Assessment
  • The High School Mathematics Blueprint
  • Retest Opportunities for the High School GAA

16
Reminders for the High School Mathematics
Blueprint
  • The mathematics courses assessed for the GAA must
    be selected based upon the high school math
    course offerings designated by the local system.
  • Integrated courses for Math I and Math II
  • Discrete courses for GPS Algebra and GPS Geometry
  • It is a requirement that both mathematics entries
    on which a student is assessed come from the same
    course.
  • If taking the integrated courses, the student
    must be assessed on Math I and Math II.
  • If taking the discrete courses, the student must
    be assessed on GPS Algebra and GPS Geometry.

17
Reminders for the High School Mathematics
Blueprint
  • DO NOT assess students on any combination of
    integrated and discrete courses!
  • For example A student who is assessed on
    Mathematics I for the first mathematics entry and
    on GPS Geometry for the second mathematics entry
    will receive a nonscorable code for the second
    mathematics entry.
  • This will result in a nonscorable entry.

    areas, shall be offered retest opportunities.

Retest Opportunities for the High School GAA
  • Retesting is required only in the content area(s)
    for which the student achieved a proficiency
    level of Emerging Progress (not proficient).
  • For each content area requiring a retest, both
    entries for the content area must be submitted.
  • If the student was not proficient due to

The Importance of Portfolio Review
67
The Importance of Portfolio Review
  • Use the Checklist for Teachers and Portfolio
    Reviewers
  • to ensure that all evidence and documentation
  • requirements have been met (page 57 of the GAA
    Manual).
  • Each of the 4 tasks submitted for the entry must
    be reviewed for alignment.
  • Tasks must be academic
  • All 4 tasks must demonstrate connection to the
    standard and indicator
  • Instruction precedes assessment task must
    provide evidence of students assessed
    performance after instruction.

69
68
The Importance of Portfolio Review
  • When reviewing evidence documentation, the
    teacher and portfolio reviewer must ask him or
    herself the following questions
  • What, specifically, was the student asked to do
    as it aligns to the standard and element?
  • What were the actual questions/actions asked of
    the student?
  • What were the students answers? How did he/she
    respond?
  • Were the answers/responses correct? Has
    evaluation of student performance by the teacher
    been clearly documented?
  • What was the type and frequency of prompting
    required for the student to successfully complete
    the task?

69
The Importance of Portfolio Review
  • Task descriptions, though brief, must be clear
    and written with sufficient information to tie
    the task to the intent of the standard and
    element/indicator.
  • Observation and Interview Forms must be written
    to describe the specific responses and level of
    performance for each individual student.
  • If documenting a group activity, be specific
    about what was asked of the individual student,
    how and in what manner he/she responded, and
    whether his/her response was correct.
  • Annotations that are too generic or non-specific
    could result in the entry being nonscorable.

71
70
Transfer Students Test Security
71
Transfer Students Within State
  • For in-state students who change schools or who
    were
  • not previously enrolled in a Georgia public
    school
  • during the assessment window
  • The sending system is responsible for
    transferring the students portfolio (including a
    signed validation form and all evidence
    previously collected) to the receiving system
    (Suggestion transfer via a trackable delivery
    method).
  • IDEA requires that educational documents follow
    the student in a timely manner.
  • If you experience difficulty getting a portfolio,
    the System Test Coordinator or Special Education
    Director should contact the GaDOE Assessment
    Division or the Special Education Services and
    Supports Division for assistance.

72
Transfer Students Out of State
  • Students enrolling in a Georgia school from
    another
  • state, private school, or home study after
  • January 1, 2014
  • Must have at least the first Collection Period
    completed
  • Box J This box is to be completed ONLY for
    students enrolling in a Georgia school from
    another state after
  • January 1, 2014. If an incomplete portfolio
    is being
  • submitted, the appropriate Not Complete
    bubble should
  • be filled in the circle for each content
    area(s) assessed.

73
Test Security
  • The GAA is an ongoing assessment that takes place
    in the classroom.
  • Teachers need ready access to materials.
  • Student work and GAA documentation should be
    secured (in the classroom) when not in use.
  • Completed portfolios must NOT be photocopied or
    retained, electronically
  • The portfolio is a secure test document like any
    other.
  • System Test Coordinators should collect and
    destroy other GAA-related materials that are not
    included in the portfolio.
  • printed materials
  • soft copy, electronically downloaded materials
  • It is not necessary to collect or destroy unused
    student work.

74
Test Security
  • While the GAA materials themselves are not
    considered secure materials, student work and
    entries are secure once they have been chosen as
    assessment evidence and placed in the GAA
    portfolio binder.
  • Maintaining security of all student materials is
    crucial to obtaining valid and reliable
    assessment results.
  • Given the unique features of the GAA (such as the
    test window), test security must be considered
    and attended to throughout the school year and
    not just during the portfolio submission phase.
  • Content entries are considered secure once they
    are included in the assessment binder.

74
75
Test Security
  • The assessment binder should not be removed from
    the school building, except when sign-out
    procedures are in effect for the purpose of peer
    reviews.
  • Once compiled into the portfolio, student work
    and materials being used for the purposes of the
    GAA must be kept in locked storage in the
    classroom except during use.
  • Access to those materials must be restricted to
    authorized individuals only.
  • It is the direct responsibility of all
