Obtaining Information Bonus slides from the NJ DLMState Winter Training Part Two NJ Library 2018 4 TEST DATES Districts must test between April 4, 2018 and June 1, 2018. It is highly suggested you use April 4 as a prep day to retrieve all student test information pages (TIPs) and test tickets. This allows you to verify which manipulatives you need for the first testlet, print the necessary

documents, and finalize the test folder for each student. Access to these documents begins on April 4th. If you are on spring break until Monday, April 9th, you may want to use your first day back in school to do NJyour test prep. DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 5 DLM TEST ADMINISTRATORS SEE NJ DLM PART ONE FOR FULL DETAILED INFORMATION ON WHO SERVES AS TEST

ADMINISTRATORS NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 6 Test Setting and Additional Test Administrators If the students primary classroom teacher is not the test administrator, it must be determined where the test will be administered. The additional staff members authorized to be test administrators may administer the test in the students classrooms or in another appropriate setting. The setting should be determined by the

classroom teacher and test administrator, taking into account technology needs, location, requirement for test security and quiet setting, etc. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 7 Rosters, Test Tickets, and Additional Test Administrators Please note students tested by the authorized test administrator will remain on the primary classroom teachers DLM roster. A separate roster will not be produced for additional staff members conducting the DLM administration for the primary teacher.

Primary teachers of DLM students will obtain the student test tickets and TIPS pages needed by the authorized additional test administrator. This folder of information must be given to the authorized test administrator, along with any needed manipulatives or other test materials, immediately prior to the administration. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 8 Test Tickets and TIPS pages In order to retrieve this information, the test administrator must have the students login ID and password.

This gives you access, under the Test Management tab, to the code associated with the testlet. This code allows you to obtain the Test Information Page (TIPs) that lists the manipulatives/objects needed for testing and other important information. See the DLM Educator Portal User Guide for detailed instructions on retrieving these. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 9 Security of Test Tickets and TIPS Pages All student test tickets and all

TIPS pages must be kept secure at all times. These files are secure and should be sent to a printer that has limited access, or to a printer that you can release the file to print when you are ready to retrieve it. Assessment Coordinators may also print these for you if it is deemed that maintaining limited access to these while printing is an issue. In that instance the AC may have access to these materials until received by the teacher/test administrator. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 10

Security of Test Tickets and TIPS Pages Student test tickets and TIPS pages must be kept in the student test folder and only be viewed by the students teacher/ Primary Test Administrator, and when necessary, the additional Test Administrator. No other district staff may view the test tickets or TIPS pages. The only exception is if the teacher reports an issue with a testlet, at which time the Assessment Coordinator may need to review the materials, or if the AC printed these materials. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018

11 Security of Test Tickets and TIPS Pages These test tickets and TIPS must be given to the additional test administrator right before the test administration, and all pages must be returned to the teacher immediately after testlet completion. This paperwork may not be copied or retained in any way. Assessment Coordinators must collect all student tickets and TIPS pages from the test administrators and destroy them. You may choose to do this daily, weekly, or securely file them and destroy at the end of the test window. If you retain this secure material until the test

window is closed, you must ensure its security until destroyed. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 12 SELECTION OF TEST SITES, SCHEDULES, AND TESTLET COMPLETION FORMS NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 13 Test Site Selection Testing sites must offer a quiet environment that

allows the student to hear and respond to directions and test questions without loud background noise or noise at a level that would disturb him/her. Testing may be done in the classroom as long as a quiet environment can be maintained and the focus of the test administrator and student is the assessment, in addition other students can not view the test questions. Staff in and outside of the classroom should be made aware that you are testing in order to prevent interruptions. Testing may be done in a computer center, quiet office, or other alternate location that offers a secure and quiet environment. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 14

Test Site Selection Testing sites must offer a quiet environment that allows the student to hear and respond to directions and test questions without loud background noise or noise at a level that would disturb him/her. NO cell phones, MP3 players, or any other unauthorized electronics may be present during testing. Devices used for testing are considered authorized. During breaks students may use Ipads or other devices as long as the testlet is not open, and the content viewed during the break is not related to the content area being assessed. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 15

Test Schedules You must prepare draft student test schedules and give them to your School Test Coordinator. Districts must compile these schedules and provide these when requested by the Office of Assessments or other Department of Education staff. As needed, schedules may be adjusted due to student absence, student behavior, unexpected school closing, etc. You may use a calendar or other form to build your draft test schedule. Note we recommend you do not test on April 4th so that you may retrieve your TIPS pages and finalize your test prep, or April 9th IF this is your first day back after spring break. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two

2018 16 Test Schedules Start early in the test window to ensure all students complete the test. Determining how many testlets to administer each day is the teachers decision: Consider students engagement level, fatigue factor, behavior, etc. A minimum of two TIPs pages and testlets will be available in the morning on April 4 It is recommended you use your first day of testing to retrieve and review the testlet information pages (TIPS) New testlets take approximately 15 minutes to appear after submitting a completed testlet If administering multiple testlets in one seating be sure to

give student a brief break if needed. Multiple students can be scheduled to test in a single day. Test administrations are scheduled NJ Winter Training Parttesting Two asDLM one student 2018 17 per test administrator per session. Test Schedules A student may complete all testlets in a content area prior to beginning another subject,

or may complete the testlets in order as they are assigned, switching back and forth between content areas. For each content area, after a testlet has been completed and another assigned, a test administrator may have the student complete the new testlet as soon as it is assigned, or wait until another day. New testlets should be assigned approximately 15 minutes after submission of prior testlet. These decisions affect the schools scheduling plan. Care must be taken to ensure all students complete all testlets within the NJ DLM test window. Testlets may take 10-20 minutes to complete. These times may vary depending on the students support

needs, the number of test items, length of text, etc. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 18 REQUIRED TESTING AND OPTIONAL TESTLETS NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 19 Number of Testlets per Grade and Subject Grade

3 Math = 6 ELA = 7 Grade 4 Math = 7 ELA = 7 Grade 5 Grade 7 Math = 6 ELA = 6 Grade

8 Math = 6 ELA = 6 Science = 9 Math = 6 ELA = 7 Grade 11 Science = 9 Math = 6 ELA = 5 Grade 6 Science = 9 Math = 6 ELA = 6 Note the writing testlet is always the last ELA testlet. For math, ELA, & science keep track of the number of testlets completed using the NJ Testlet Completion form NJ DLM Winter Training Part One which is available in March on the NJ DLM website. 2018 20

Additional Testlets You must keep track of the number of testlets a student has completed in each subject to ensure that all required testlets are administered. The chart indicates the number of testlets a student must take in each subject and grade. Once all testlets in a subject are submitted for a student, the system may assign an additional (optional) testlet, which is delivered to the students account. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 21

Additional Testlets These additional field testlets are delivered in KITE all at one time, after the student completed the required number of testlets. Students are assigned either 1-2 field testlets or no field testlets. Please complete the field testlets assigned to your students if possible. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 22

DURING THE TEST NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 23 Emergency Plan Each school must have a plan to ensure a smooth test administration for all students. That includes Not planning fire drills, practice school lock downs, or other drills during testing. Having a plan in place to adjust test schedules or use authorized alternate test administrators during unexpected absences of the primary teacher/test administrator.

Ensure all teachers understand how to handle temporary test disruptions and proper completion of testlets based on the DLM training materials. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 24 Optional Test Administrator Checklist Adapted from checklist developed by A. Petrucelli, Assessmen t

Coordinato r, Allegro School, NJ. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 25 Required Student Test Folder A Test Administrator MUST have a folder for each student testing that contains: The students test ticket The TIPs page applicable to the testlet being administered The NJ Testlet Completion form The NJ Teacher Observation form

Information on selected accessibility features and supports Also a test administrator must have the necessary manipulatives collected prior to administering a testlet. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 26 Use of Testlet Information Page After printing the TIPs page, review it to

identify which skills are to be tested and which manipulatives are required/recommended. If you must substitute a different manipulative than the one listed, be sure it satisfies the required attributes of the original manipulative. For example, if the recommended manipulatives are three identical markers of three different colors, you could use three identical pipe cleaners of three different colors. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 27 Substituting Manipulatives and Test Directions Testlet

directions often incorporate the name of the original manipulative. The test administrator has to remember, when reading aloud the test directions or test items, to replace the name of the original manipulative with the name of the substituted manipulative. It is helpful to write the name of the old manipulative on the top section of a note card with an X through it, then write the name of the actual manipulative on the bottom part of the note card. Doing this gives you a good reminder that when you see the original word on screen, you replace it with the substitute manipulative name when reading aloud. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 28

Prior to Testing Check the Status of KITE System on the DLM Webpage Note: This page indicates the system status and any current issues. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 29 Prompting Not Allowed Verbal,

gestural, model, and physical prompting is not allowed during the administration of any DLM testlet. Students may not be given any help to answer the questions. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 30 Prompting Not Allowed If a student does not answer a question, the test administrator may repeat the test question and then

pause an appropriate amount of time for a student to process the question and select an answer. If the student still does not answer the question the teacher must mark no response when it is listed as one of the response options; however if no response is not one of the options, then do not mark any option. Leave the answer blank and continue to the next test question. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 31 Clarification Allowed If Needed Some test item directions ask the teacher to

say Show me the . This may not be the language you typically use when asking a student a question. When necessary, after stating the phrase Show me the , you may restate the phrase for clarification by saying either of the following: Look at the Point to the Touch the For example, the teacher may say Show me the red marker. Then for clarification the teacher says Point to the red marker. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 32 Submission of Testlets

Only the test administrator may use the Submit button when each testlet is completed. A testlet cannot be retrieved and reopened once it is submitted. You may also NOT open a testlet then Exit without submitting. If a student could not answer a test question and it was left blank, the DLM system will still allow the testlet to be submitted once all questions are viewed and the student answered as many questions as he/she could. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018

33 Required Testlet Completion Form You must document in writing which authorized staff member administered each testlet to each student as well as the date and time. A Testlet Completion form helps you document which authorized staff administered each testlet and to see at a glance the status of student testing. This form must be kept in the Student Test Folder. This required form is posted on the NJ DLM website. You must download and print these forms for use. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two

2018 34 Required Testlet Completion Form This form is now designed to use one form per student. It is no longer designed to accommodate multiple students on one form, as it needs to be included in the students test folder. This form must be completed each time a testlet is administered. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 35

Required Testlet Completion Form NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 36 Required Testlet Completion Form The bottom of the form reminds test administrators how many testlets there are for each grade level and content area. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 37

Test Administration Details After a testlet has been completed, it may take fifteen minutes for the next testlet to be assigned. Occasionally it may take the system longer to assign a testlet. This is due to the volume of students testing and the computer adaptive system, which must select new test items based on several statistical measures (e.g. performance on linkage level, new EE to be tested, etc.) NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 39

REQUIRED AND OPTIONAL FORMS NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 39 NJ DLM Forms Required Forms Optional Forms Testlet Completion form Highly Test Schedules (made Recommended in district) NJ Test Observation Security Agreements form

Irregularity Report (only NJ Test when needed) Administrator Checklist All forms are posted on the NJ DLM website. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 40 Testlet Completion Form You must document in writing which staff member administered

each testlet to each student. A Testlet Completion form helps you document which authorized staff administered each testlet and to see at a glance the status of student testing. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 41 NJ DLM Teacher Observation Form This form is used to make notes about the students test circumstances in order to consider future testing needs. Info such as where the student was tested, and if the location was

conducive to testing, is one example of observation notes. Another example is to indicate any AP change you think would be appropriate for the future, based on the current test features. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 42 Irregularity Reporting vs. Information Used for Score Interpretation For the NJ DLM, some test administration information is best kept as a record in district to assist during score interpretation.

Other information needs to be reported to the Office of Assessments as an irregular test administration. The next two slides differentiate NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 43 Information for Use When Interpreting Scores Some issues may occur during testing that a district will want to document, but does not require

informing the Office of Assessments. These issues may or may not impact a students score. Issues such as the following may be documented in district using the NJ DLM teacher observation form: changing testing locations due to noise or other factors, changing test administrators, pausing testing to assist student with medical, personal care, or behavioral needs, cancelling and rescheduling a test administration, etc. More information on documenting these types of issues will be provided with the NJ DLM Teacher Observation form. NJ DLM Winter Training Part Two 2018 44

Irregularity Reporting The Assessment Coordinator completes an Irregularity Report when a test accessibility feature is not delivered based on the students AP and DLM Accessibility manual, the DLM (not district) test technology fails or significantly delays a test even though the KITE testing status is green, and the testlet has errors such as missing response options, missing graphics, etc. The report must be completed and a copy sent to the Office of Assessments. This form, along with directions for completion, are on the DLM NJ webpage.
