5 Participation Requirements ( Students must take ACCESS for ELLs if they: were reported as LEP in the October 2015 SIMS, OR arrived after October 2015 and will be reported as LEP in the March 2016 SIMS Students with disabilities should be considered for Alternate ACCESS for ELLs if they: were reported as LEP in the October 2015 SIMS, or will be reported as LEP in the March 2016 SIMS, and are designated for the MCAS-Alt, as determined by their IEP or 5 in their 504 plan; or are in grades 1, 2, 9, 11, or 12, and have a significant cognitive disability.

6 Participation Requirements (continued) Students are not required to take ACCESS for ELLs if they are: ELL students reported as LEP in October 2015 SIMS who have exited ELL status before the beginning of the testing window (i.e., before January 7, 2016). ELL students in kindergarten with significant disabilities who would likely be designated for an alternate assessment in grade 1. ELL students in grades 1 12 who meet the guidelines to receive the following accommodations and therefore must take the Listening, Speaking, and Writing tests, but not the Reading test: MCAS Accommodation 26: Test administrator reads aloud the ELA Reading Comprehension test. MCAS Accommodation 28: Electronic Text Reader for the ELA Reading Comprehension test. 6

7 Participation Requirements (continued) The following students are not required to take one or more sections of ACCESS for ELLs: ELL students whose primary disability is reported as deaf or hard-of-hearing must take the Reading and Writing tests, but no the Listening and Speaking tests if they are unable to speak or listen. ELL students whose primary disability is reported as blind must take the Braille version of the Reading and the Writing tests, but not take the Listening and Speaking tests. ELL students with significant cognitive disabilities who are designated for MCAS-Alt, or are in grades 1, 2, 9, 11, or 12 and would be likely to take MCAS-Alt in the future, do not take standard ACCESS tests, but participate instead in the Alternate ACCESS for ELLs. 7

8 ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 computer-based vs. paper-based New computer-based ACCESS for ELLs tests (called ACCESS for ELLs 2.0) will be available for students in grades 1 12 for the school year. Schools have the option of choosing computer-based or paper-based assessments, or give a combination of both. In schools giving computer-based ACCESS 2.0 tests, paper-based versions will be available as an accommodation. Paper-based versions of the Kindergarten and Alternate ACCESS for ELLs tests will continue to be administered to all students. 8

9 Benefits of Online Testing Increased student engagement: more interactive and dynamic Built-in accommodations and accessibility features appropriate for a range of student needs Tests are adaptive, so unnecessary to pre-select tiers Easier to administer Simultaneous administration for multiple grades, test tiers, and proficiency levels Central scoring by DRC for all domains, including Speaking Testing up to 7 students concurrently on Speaking, using headsets with microphones 9

10 Domains & New Grade Level Clusters 10 *Note: Kindergarten will remain an interactive, paper-based kit.

11 Response Capture and Central Scoring Listening and Reading: Student responses will be captured digitally and scored by the online test engine. Speaking: Student responses will be recorded and automatically sent to DRC for scoring by trained raters. Writing: Computer-generated responses will be recorded, automatically sent to DRC, and scored by trained raters; handwritten responses will also be scored by DRC. 11

12 Online Student Experience Graphic-supported items Audio-supported directions Narrated and guided introduction by a human voice for each domain test Thematic folders pertaining to a unified theme Practice items Modeled responses for the productive domains Simple navigation Uncluttered and streamlined interface Embedded accessibility tools 12

15 Speaking Item Layout 15

16 Writing Item Layout 16

17 Writing Test Options Different Writing formats to meet the needs of all learners 17

18 Writing Test Options Writing domain will be handwritten for students in grades 1 3; booklets will automatically be provided in a range of tiers. Students in grades 4 12 may either keyboard or hand-write responses. A small quantity of writing response booklets will be provided for students who may need to hand-write instead of keyboard. If a student expresses discomfort, concern, or anxiety about keyboarding after logging in and starting the test, the Test Administrator may switch the student to the Writing test on paper. In such a case, Test Administrator should contact DRC customer service for assistance. Even if a student will respond on paper, the student still needs to be seated at the computer or tablet in order to view the Writing task 18 and click through the prompts using the mouse, if taking the remainder of test on computer.

19 Administration Considerations Order of Test Administration: Students performance on the Listening and Reading tests will determine their placement for Writing and Speaking. Listening and Reading: Group administration first. May be administered together in one session (allow at least 90 minutes) or separately. Writing and Speaking: Can be administered in either order, after the Listening and Reading tests are given. 19

20 Test Administration Times The following testing times do not include test distribution, set-up, reading directions, and collecting materials after testing is completed: Domain Computer-based Paper-based Listening Up to 40 minutes Up to 40 minutes Reading Up to 35 minutes Up to 60 minutes Writing Up to 65 minutes Up to 65 minutes Speaking Untimed (about 30 minutes) Untimed (about 30 minutes) NOTES: Up to 50 percent additional time is allowed for all students, particularly on the Reading test. 20 ELLs with disabilities may receive extended testing time, up to the end of one school day, to complete a single test session. Kindergarten, Speaking, and Alternate ACCESS are untimed.

21 Technology Requirements for Computer-based Testing Technology requirements for the online test are listed at: Headphones are needed for all domains. Headsets or headphones with built in microphones are an additional requirement for the computer-based Speaking test Requires a headset for each student Administration group size up to 7 students Centrally scored, not locally scored as before 21

22 Paper-based Test Forms 22

23 Paper-based ACCESS 2.0: Plans and Specifications New grade clusters: Transitional form in : Grades K, 1, 2, 3, 4-5, 6-8, 9-12 Beginning : Grade clusters will align with online clusters Media-delivered Listening and Speaking Test Administrators will play pre-recorded prompts. Speaking: Updated Scoring Scale, Rules, and Procedures Individually administered with pre-recorded prompts Test Administrators will score student responses locally Must be trained and certified 23

24 Test Administration Changes Paper-Based Test booklet labels booklets without labels will not be scored (do not cross out labels) Pre-ID Labels (White) District/School (Yellow) Do Not Process (White with Orange Stripe) Completing demographic information Consult Massachusetts-specific TAM insert (Goldenrod) Listening and Speaking test audio are on the same CD Speaking test is divided into two tiers (A and B/C) Speaking responses scored against model responses, using new Speaking Score Scale Return test materials once the majority of testing has been completed 24

25 Scheduling Considerations for Paper-based Testing Schedule group-administered tests by tier and grade cluster, not to exceed 22 students per group. Schedule individual administrations of Speaking, Kindergarten, and Alternate ACCESS tests. Determine number of test administrators needed for each test and test location, including accommodations. Schedule according to time allowed for each test. Plan make-up sessions in case of inclement weather. 25

26 Paper-based Testing: Criteria for Selecting Test Tiers Students take either Tier A, B, or C for grades 1-12 paper-based Listening, Reading, and Writing tests Tier selection is based on student s overall proficiency level on 2015 ACCESS for ELLs, if student received a score. General criteria for tier selection: Tier A for beginning ELLs Tier B for most ELL students, with some, but not extensive, academic language proficiency and literacy Tier C for students who are close to exiting ELL status Detailed criteria at Additional criteria for selecting a test tier: scores from WIDA ACCESS Placement Test (W APT) scores on other English language assessments observations by staff working closely with the student 26

27 ACCESS for ELLs Proficiency Levels and Tiers Students who take Tier A cannot receive higher than Level 4. Students who take Tier B cannot receive higher than Level 5. 27
