12 2.0 Test Security CELL PHONES: Unauthorized electronic devices are prohibited during. This includes all devices with cellular, messaging, or wireless capabilities. The security of assessment and confidentiality of student information are vital to maintain validity, reliability, and fairness of results. All Badger Exam items are secure and must be appropriately handled. Secure handling protects integrity, validity, and confidentiality of assessment items, prompts, and student information. Any irregularity, impropriety, or breach in test administration must be reported to DPI as a test security incident. If reliability or validity of a test is compromised, test scores of individual students or entire classes may be invalidated, and or disciplinary actions may be taken. For more information on test security, please refer to Test Security Manual at Who is responsible for Test Security? Everyone who works with assessments, communicates test results, and/or receives information is responsible for test security. This includes but is not limited to: Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) Staff District Administrators District Assessment Coordinators (DACs) School Assessment Coordinators (SACs) District Technology Coordinators (DTCs) School Technology Coordinators (STCs) Teachers, Test Administrators, Proctors (TAs) Students, parents, and community at large Certified and non-certified public school staff Cooperative Educational Service Agencies (CESAs) staff DACs and SACs are responsible for training staff on importance of and policies on test security. Security Throughout Testing Process Test security incidents, such as improprieties, irregularities, and breaches, are behaviors prohibited before, during and after test administration, because y give a student an unfair advantage or because y compromise secure administration of assessment and items. Wher intentional or by accident, failure to comply with security rules, eir by staff or students constitutes a test security incident. For more information about Badger Exam Security see Test Security Manual and Badger Exam Test Security Training. For examples of improprieties, irregularities and breaches see Appendix B

13 Consequences of Test Security Incidents Consequences of violations may include invalidation of student test results and could result in civil legal liability for copyright violations. At eir school or school district level, a test violation could result in loss of a year s test results for grade(s) and subject(s) affected by test irregularity. There will be no opportunity to retest. When test results are invalidated, student(s) do not receive test results for those content areas. The school district should be prepared to explain this to students parents. Disciplinary measures for educators and school staff should be determined by local school board policy. Depending on severity of test security violations, examples of disciplinary measures might include a written reprimand, suspension, or termination of contract. The DPI may also take disciplinary actions against department-licensed individuals. Test security breaches involving student cheating can result in an unfair advantage for that student and compromise validity of standardized test. The tests for such students should be invalidated in that content area. Disciplinary measures for students are handled at school or school district level. For more information on test security, see Test Security Manual and Badger Exam Test Security Training. Setting up Testing Environment Testing conditions should be comfortable for all students. SACs and TAs should complete following: Remove or cover all instructional materials that might assist students in answering questions displayed on bulletin boards, chalkboards, dry-erase boards, or on charts (e.g., wall charts that contain literary definitions, maps, mamatics formulas, etc.). Ensure adequate spacing between students seating and/or visual barriers Place a TESTING NOT DISTURB sign on door of room Provide a quiet environment void of distractions Establish procedures for students that finish ahead of ors by eir having students exit room quietly and report to anor area, or work silently on designated activities at ir workstation

14 Table 2 includes some of general security requirements to keep in mind for Badger Exam. Table 2: Test Security Do and Don t List Test Security Reminders ensure secure printing and storage of students test tickets. Test tickets include confidential information necessary for students to log in to test delivery system. N T allow unauthorized electronic devices that allow availability to outside information, electronic communication among students, photographing, or copying test content. This includes any device with cellular, messaging, or wireless capabilities such as cell phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), ipods, cameras, and electronic translation devices. N T allow unauthorized staff, or adults or students not participating in assessment in room where a test is being administered. Only students participating in assessment can view test questions. N T allow TAs and/or or trained staff to review or analyze any test questions or student responses, including students notes on scratch paper. N T allow digital, electronic, or manual devices to be used to record or retain test items, reading passages, or writing prompts. ensure that for students using print on demand accommodation, TAs closely monitor and secure location that items/passages are printed. N T keep printed test items/passages or scratch paper for future test sessions except for performance tasks (PTs). Reference section 7.1 for additional information. Printed test items/passages for students receiving print on demand accommodation, including embossed Braille printouts and scratch paper, must be collected and inventoried at end of each test session and n immediately shredded. N T review, discuss, or analyze test items, stimuli, reading passages, or writing prompts at any time, including before, during, or after. Student interaction during a test is limited to what is necessary for purpose of a performance task. Similarly, se materials must not be discussed with or released to anyone via any media, including fax, , social media websites, etc. collect all test tickets at end of each session. If students did not complete test, test tickets should be stored until subsequent test session. If students completed test, test tickets must be destroyed. N T use any test items, stimuli, reading passages, or writing prompts for instruction

15 Process to Report Test Security Incidents Administrators, certified and non-certified school staff, students and parents must adhere to ethical procedures in. Violation of se procedures can be investigated and local school board, DPI, and/or court system may take appropriate sanctions. School or district staff must immediately report all incidents of test administration improprieties, irregularities, and breaches to DAC and to DPI Office of Student Assessment (OSA). The report of an incident may be submitted to OSA by telephone, fax, letter, , or by submitting an Incident Report Form (available online at As result of a report, OSA may ask for Incident Report Form to be completed and submitted within 24 hours, or OSA staff member may complete form during initial call. Students, ir parents or or family members, and persons in community may also report test security violations. When a irregularity is alleged to have occurred, OSA will contact DAC (if he or she is not reporting individual). Depending on perceived severity of allegation, OSA may ask school district to conduct a thorough fact-finding investigation of alleged irregularity and report results of its investigation to DPI within two weeks. The OSA has put toger guidelines to assist school districts documenting investigations of alleged incidents (available online at Smarter/security). After receipt of fact-finding report, OSA staff will consult with school district on details of alleged irregularity. The school district may receive a follow-up letter from OSA requesting additional information or informing school district that investigation has been closed. Because validity and reliability of examinations rest with DPI, OSA will ultimately determine wher irregularity should be declared a violation, wher Badger Exam results should be invalidated, and at what level. This may impact determination of school and school district accountability

16 3.0 Practice Tests In preparation for Badger Exam and to expose students to various item-response types in ELA and mamatics it is highly recommended that all students participate in Smarter Balanced Practice Test and Badger Exam Practice Test. Each resource offers students a unique opportunity to experience a test in a manner similar to what y will see on summative assessments and prepares students for. Toger Smarter Balanced Practice Test and Badger Practice Test expose students to a variety of item types.

Table 5: Assessment Sequence Section 1 ELA and Mamatics Section 2 Mamatics PT Breaks Breaks can be provided during test sessions using software s pause feature. Students can take breaks during PT test sessions. Following a break, student will have access to same items. Expiration Once a student has started Section 1, it will be available for 45 days. Once a student has started Section 2 PT, it will be available for 10 days. 4.4 Test Timeout (due to inactivity) As a security measure, after 30 minutes of inactivity students are automatically logged out of test and test will be stopped at student s current location. Activity is defined as moving mouse, clicking on screen, or using keyboard. Before system logs student out of assessment, following warning message will be displayed on screen You have been inactive for 30 minutes. In 90 seconds you will be logged out of test. Please click on OK to continue. Clicking [Ok] will resume session. The student may n continue and will have access to previously answered test questions within current test segment. If student does not click [Ok] within 90 seconds after this message appears, he or she will be logged out and log in screen will reappear. When student logs back into system, he/she will be presented with page containing item(s) he or she was working on when session ended (if page contains at least one unanswered item) OR with next page (if all items on previous page were answered)

19 5.0 Classroom Activity Classroom Activities are only required for mamatics portion of Badger Exam. SACs will distribute Classroom Activity materials to TAs approximately 1 to 2 weeks prior to administration. The purpose of Classroom Activity is to introduce students to context of a performance task so all students enter performance task with same background information and are able to demonstrate skills task intends to assess. The Classroom Activity is designed to be an introduction and not an assessment. TAs should review Classroom Activity and following Classroom Activity guidelines prior to administration. It is preferable but not essential that TA administering Classroom Activity has content knowledge in area of assessment. The TA should be able to write or display information including any tables, graphics, formulas, or or information contained in Classroom Activity materials for students to see, such as on a chalkboard or dry-erase board. Computers, projectors, and or technology are allowed but not required for Classroom Activity. When Section 2 PT is administered, content from Classroom Activity should not be available (i.e., do not put any content from Classroom Activity on board, in handouts, etc.). CLASSROOM ACTIVITY: Classroom activities include directions associated with that specific classroom activity. The Classroom activity is not administered online. Students may take notes during Classroom Activity, but notes may not be used during Section 2 PT. Notes must be collected before proceeding to PT and stored in a secure location until securely shredded. The Classroom Activity must be administered prior to performance task. There should be no more than a three-day lapse between Classroom Activity and Section 2 PT. The Classroom Activity is nonsecure; however, it should not be supplemented with any or content that administrator may think is helpful. Supplementing Classroom Activity may detract from intended purpose of Classroom Activity and is not advised. Consider appropriate accommodations that should be provided to students in class that would normally be provided during instruction. Appendix D: Accessibility Guidelines for Classroom Activities contains information on se student resources that can be provided during Classroom Activity. In event a student is absent during Classroom Activity, a make-up session must be scheduled. The Classroom Activity may be recorded; however, make-up session should provide students with an experience similar to that of his or her peers. To greatest extent possible, make-up session should provide students an opportunity to interact with teacher or TA and his or her peers. 6.0 Accessibility Information and Resources State and federal laws require that state assessments must allow for inclusion of all students, including students with disabilities and English language learners, to extent practicable. The Smarter Balanced Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines (UAAG) are intended for school-level personnel and decision-making teams as y prepare for and implement Badger Exam. The UAAG provide information for classroom teachers, English development educators, special education teachers, and related services personnel to use in selecting and administering universal tools, designated supports, and accommodations for those students who need m

20 6.1 Universal Tools Universal tools are access features that are available to all students based on student preference and selection. Access features of assessment are eir provided as digitally delivered components of test administration system or separate from it. 6.2 Designated Supports Designated supports are those features that are available for use by any student for whom need has been indicated by an educator or team of educators (with parent/guardian and student input as appropriate). They are eir provided as digitally delivered components of test administration system or separate from it. Embedded designated supports must be enabled in TOMS prior to test administration. For information on updating student settings, refer to TOMS User/Student Management Manual. 6.3 Accommodations DESIGNATED SUPPORTS AND ACCOMMODATIONS: All embedded designated supports and accommodation must be enabled in TOMS by a DAC or SAC. TAs can view accessibility information in TOMS but cannot modify information. Accommodations are changes in procedures or materials that increase equitable access. The UAAG identify accommodations for students for whom re is documentation of need for accommodations on an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 accommodation plan. Consortium-approved accommodations do not compromise learning expectations, construct, grade-level standard, or intended outcome of assessment. Embedded accommodations must be activated in TOMS prior to test administration. For information on updating student settings, refer to TOMS User/Student Management Manual. 6.4 Related Accessibility Resources Dependent on individual student needs, TAs may need to obtain additional resources for some students accessibility needs. For example, based on individual student settings in TOMS, students may need access to a calculator, a multiplication table, or color overlays. Similarly, if a student requires a portion of test to be read aloud and/or scribed or individual items printed, TAs are responsible for adhering to standardized procedures. For complete list of non-embedded accessibility resources see Smarter Balanced Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines (UAAG). Table 6 provides links to standardized accessibility resources

21 Table 6: Additional Accessibility Information and Accommodation Resources Description Assistive Technology Software or Devices Multiplication Table Print on Demand Procedures Read Aloud Guidelines Scribing Protocol If a student s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 plan indicates a need for an assistive technology device, student will need to access Badger Exam using that Assistive Technology Secure Browser. This resource is a non-embedded accommodation available only for grades 4 8 mamatics. Reference Appendix C. This document outlines processes for using print on demand accommodation. This document outlines qualifications, guidelines, and procedures required for a test reader. The test reader must sign Read Aloud Agreement to Maintain Security and Confidentiality prior to test administration. Completed agreement forms should be retained by SAC. This document outlines qualifications, guidelines, and procedures required when using a scribe. 7.0 Additional Resources for All Students All students will need access to a district owned computer with secure browser installed. The secure browser is designed to support test security by prohibiting access to external applications and prevents users from navigating away from assessment. If a student s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 plan indicates a need for an assistive technology device, student will need to access Badger Exam using that Assistive Technology Secure Browser. For information about accessing and installing Badger Exam Secure Browser and Badger Exam Assistive Technology Secure Browser reference Technology Coordinator Manual. In addition to a computer, all students will need some additional resources. TAs are responsible for ensuring all students have access to appropriate resources listed in Table 7: Additional Technical Resources. Table 7: Additional Technical Requirements Device Headphones/Earphones Graph Paper Scratch Paper Keyboard Pointing Device Description Required for all students during ELA, required in Mamatics for students needing text-to-speech and/or audio glossaries Required in Mamatics for all students in grades 6 through 8. See Section 2.0 for important information about retaining graph paper. Optional resource for all students in ELA and Mamatics. See Sections 2.0 and 7.1 for important information about retaining scratch paper. A physical keyboard is required to avoid consuming screen space for ipad 2 and above. Mouse, touch screen, touchpad, or or pointing device

22 7.1 Retention of printed materials or scratch paper All scratch paper, graph paper, or printed test items/passages (for students receiving print on demand accommodation) must be collected and inventoried at end of each test session and n immediately shredded. The only exception to shredding printed materials and scratch paper is when notes are used during Mamatics PT. For mamatics tasks, if a student needs to take performance task in more than one session, scratch paper may be collected at end of each session, securely stored, and made available to student at next performance task session. Once student completes performance task, scratch paper must be collected and securely destroyed to maintain test security. 8.0 Test Operating Management System (TOMS) TOMS is a secure website used to manage Badger Exam. TOMS is used to store all students demographic information. This information will be reviewed and updated by DACs and SACs before. TOMS is also used to initiate for students and access score reports. Access to various features in TOMS is dependent upon user s role. TAs will use TOMS to confirm accuracy of students test settings, generate sessions, print test tickets to assist students in login process, and monitor students progress. 8.1 TOMS Login Information LOGIN: TOMS login credentials will always be sent from This address should be whitelisted to ensure that users receive login information. All TAs will receive an automated from ets.org with a username and temporary password to access TOMS. Temporary passwords will expire within 30 days. At a user s first logon, TAs will be prompted to sign a test confidentiality agreement and change ir password. 8.2 Student Test Settings and Accessibility in TOMS DESIGNATED SUPPORTS AND ACCOMMODATIONS: TAs must confirm accuracy of students test settings before test administration. Using Smarter Balanced Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines (UAAG), DACs and SACs are responsible for customizing students test settings in TOMS. Prior to TAs must confirm accuracy of students test settings. If a TA identifies any errors in a student s test settings, TAs must contact School Assessment Coordinator (SAC) for remedy. Failure to provide correct student settings may result in a test irregularity. To view test settings, TAs must log into TOMS. Under Students tab, select view & edit and n accessibility resources tab. For additional information about viewing students test settings reference TOMS: User/ Student Management Manual at

23 8.3 Test Sessions and Test Tickets It is recommended that TAs print test tickets one to three days prior to. Test tickets are created in TOMS and provide each student with ir login information (username, password, and session ID). To create test tickets, TAs must log in to TOMS and select Online Testing tab. Using grade level filters, select all students included in test session. Select appropriate test (Section 1 ELA, Section 1 Mamatics, or Section 2 Mamatics PT). Select button to print tickets. Each student will need three test tickets, one ticket corresponding to each test (Section 1 ELA, Section 1 Mamatics, or Section 2 Mamatics PT). For additional information on generating test sessions and printing test tickets, reference TOMS Test Delivery Manual at TEST TICKETS: Test tickets include confidential information. Test tickets must be printed in a secure location and must be securely stored until test administration. Similarly at end of, test tickets must be shredded. Students will use same test ticket every time y log into each test. For test security purposes, however, test tickets will become inactive 120 minutes after students log out of test. As a result, if a student accidently logs out during a test session, he/she would be able to immediately log back into system. Similarly, if a student participates in one test session, logs out of test and n returns to test within 120 minutes, he/she would be able to log into test. If however, student attempts to log into test more than 120 minutes after logging out, test ticket will be inactive and student will receive a login error. To reactivate test tickets, TA must log into TOMS, select student or group of students needing to continue, and select continue. After completing this task, student can log back into test interface using information on test ticket. For additional information on test tickets, reference TOMS Test Delivery Manual at
