If you missed our recent presentations at SES and SDMS, there are important details that you need to know when you sign your Test Security Agreement.  Signing your Test Security Agreement implies that you have done three things:
  • You have read the Test Administrator Manual (linked on the left side of this page under "Quick Links."  The first 12 pages are the most essential; they have all of the information and regulations on the test itself.  Pages 12 through 36 are the scripts that you are to read to students during testing sessions.  Everything after page 36 is related to the paper-and-pencil version of the test, which we are not doing.  So, the first 12 pages are the most important to read right now.
  • You have watched the Test Essentials webinar (linked on the right side of this page under "DoE Webinars."  This seven minute webinar will give you the basics of the test structure.
  • You have watched the Test Security webinar (also linked on the right side of this page under "DoE Webinars."  This discusses some of the important test security considerations that everyone involved in testing must consider.
Test Security Agreements are due to the Central Office by the end of the day on Friday.  Links to the agreements (one for Test Administrators and Proctors and one for School Test Coordinators) are available in the right sidebar.

Finally, the slideshow for my presentation on "Important Details in the Test Administration Manual" is embedded at the bottom of this page.
