Key Changes
Texas Assessment Management System
Consolidates services previously provided by the
eMeasurement (online testing), SchoolHouse (online
data management), and SchoolSuccess (TAKS–Alt)
websites.
 TAKS Grade 5 Spanish Test Booklets
The April grade 5 mathematics and reading
assessments will be administered from separate test
booklets, not a combined booklet. Students will
continue to use a combined answer document.

Key Changes
 Data Collection
 Race/Ethnicity Field
TEA will no longer collect ethnicity and race information
using both the “old” and “new” federal standards,
beginning with PEIMS data collection in 2010–2011.
Answer documents will contain only the fields
needed to meet the latest federal standards.
 Substitute Assessment
An “ALT” bubble has been added to the June TAKS grade 5
and 8 mathematics and reading answer documents to
Indicate if a district provided an alternate way to meet the
SSI requirements for a third testing opportunity.
 Years in U.S. Schools
This TELPAS data collection has changed slightly. The
previous “5 or more school years” category has been
divided into “5 school years” and “6 or more school years.”

Receiving Materials
• About four weeks before testing an advanced materials
inventory list will be available on the Texas Assessment
Management System. Check it to make sure that you will have
enough materials for testing. If you are short then place your
supplemental materials order via email.
• When materials arrive on your campus, open the boxes
immediately and do an inventory check to make sure that you
have everything on your packing list. If anything is missing then
immediately notify the district testing coordinator.
– Shipping errors can be cleared up if addressed right after
we receive the materials but after testing is complete you
cannot claim that any shortage of secure testing materials
is the result of a shipping error.
2011
13
Secure Storage of Testing Materials
• Secure testing materials must be kept under lock and key in a
secure location.
• A storage location is not secure if individuals who are not
authorized to have access to the materials have a key to the
storage location. (For example, custodians, administrators or
others who may have a master key.)
– You do not have to be concerned about personnel not assigned
to your campus that may have a key such as the district
maintenance staff or a central office administrator with a grand
master key. That situation will fall under the responsibility of
the district testing coordinator and the superintendent.
• Campus principals will be required to sign off on the campus
secure materials storage form and it will be retained as part of the
test security documentation for five years at central office.

Two Answer Documents
•
•
There are two answer documents that are used for all
TAKS, TAKS (Accommodated), TAKS-M, and LAT testing.
1) TAKS, TAKS (Accommodated), and TAKS LAT
including both English and Spanish are on one
combined answer document (per grade)
2) TAKS–M and TAKS-M LAT – students taking all
subjects with TAKS–M, including students eligible to
take TAKS–M with linguistic accommodations, will
use the regular TAKS-M answer document (grades
4–11) or scorable test booklet (grade 3)
TAKS–Alt – no answer documents should be submitted
for students assessed with TAKS (Alt), it is an online
only system.
2011

Coding the Answer Documents
• Mark ONE score code for each test that is included on the
answer document. (Note the “*” score code means “did not
test on this answer document” for the subject indicated. For
example the student split testing between TAKS and TAKS-M.
Remember slipping test languages or versions eliminates TPM.)
• Mark the test taken on answer documents (and the testing
language for grades 3-5).
• If accommodations are needed, mark one or more
accommodation codes depending upon what the student
receives. Use the campus special education accommodations
tracking list. Leave blank if there are no accommodations.
• OA, LP, and BR testing accommodations– Do not bubble both OA and P for an oral administration.
Use only the OA bubble.
– Do not bubble both LP or BR and P for a large print or
Braille test administration. Use only the LP or BR bubble.
2011
19
Verifying Coding on Answer
Document
• It is your responsibility as a campus
testing coordinator to verify all coding
on the answer document.
• Test Taken Information determines
which answer key is used to score the
test.
• Demographic coding affects
accountability.
2011

How to Verifying Coding
•
•
•
Everything is important since it affects something in
one of the three accountability systems.
Review each precoded label and answer document to
verify coding is correct.
Work from the precoding rosters and then find
individual answer documents that need corrections to
make the corrections.

General Rule for Submitting
Appropriate Answer Documents
•
•
•
•
Every student gets a TAKS or TAKS-M answer document for the
primary administration of all tests, even if they do not take a
test, including LAT testers. (For example, SSI reading & math
for grades 5, & 8 will receive an answer document coded “L”
in April even though they will not take their LAT reading and
math tests until May.)
For SSI and Exit retests, only students that have not previously
met the standard will receive an answer document, even if
they do not take a test.
The exceptions are;
1) Student participating in the TAKS-Alt assessment.
2) Exit level retesting that is done online.
3) Registered out-of-school Exit re-testers.
Be sure to check the guidelines for each particular test
administration in the coordinator's manual, pages 106-109.
2011
26
Agency Use
• This area of the answer document is used to code
exit level retest students taking TAAS (99999) or
TEAMS (88888).
• Since TEAMS and TAAS are not longer offered, these
students take the appropriate section of TAKS. The
Agency Use coding identifies a different passing
standard.
• TEA is no longer collecting information about makeup administrations or DAEP administrations in the
Agency Use area of the answer document.

Test Administration
Procedures
2011
28
Before Test Planning
• Tests must be administered on the dates
specified in the State Testing Calendar of
Events.
• At least one test administrator for every 30
students.
• “Testing – Do Not Disturb” signs posted on
testing rooms.
• Computers should be shut down.
• Cell phones turned off.
• Testing rooms should be quiet, well lighted,
well ventilated, and comfortable.
• Bulletin Boards and instructional displays
covered or removed if it contains anything
that might aid students during testing.
2011
29
Identifying Eligible Students
• It is important to recognize that there are
specific eligibility requirements for the
following assessments and/or
accommodations. In your planning, you
should make sure the student is eligible to
take the assessment or receive the
accommodation.
–

–
TAKS-M or TAKS-Alt
LAT testing
Dyslexia Bundled Accommodations
Oral Administrations
Use of Braille or Large print versions of the test.
2011
30
TAKS-M Retest Opportunities
• Retest opportunities are available for TAKS-M
reading and math at grades 5 & 8. (SSI
grades and subjects)
• There are NO retest opportunities for any
Exit level TAKS-M subject.
• The exit level TAKS-M is only a grade level
test and not a graduation requirement like
TAKS.
• The only way a student at grade 11 would
retake TAKS-M subject tests is if the student
is still classified as grade 11 the following
year.
2011
31
Make Up Testing
• Make-up testing sessions are permitted only
for the tests in grades and subjects that are
used by NCLB to determine AYP ratings.
• Reading & Math grades 3-8 & 10.
• The student must be absent on the
scheduled testing day in order to be eligible
for make up testing.
• Only the Grade 10 ELA answer document
requires additional bubbling. For the grade
10 ELA Make-Up it determines the answer
key used to score the test.
2011
32
Make-up Testing
• Make-up Testing must be completed by
– Grade 10 ELA –Mar. 3, 2011
– SSI Reading & Math –Apr. 7, 2011
– TAKS/LAT for late April Dates: April 30, 2011
– SSI retest/LAT – May 20, 2011
2011
33
Planning for Individual or Small
Group Administrations
• LAT testing must be separated from regular TAKS
testing.
• Dyslexia Bundled Accommodations testing must be
separated from regular TAKS.
• Oral Administrations must be separated from regular
TAKS testing.
• TAKS-M testing must be separated from regular TAKS
testing.
• Small group is defined as smaller than a normal
administration. However, the real issue is meeting
the needs of the individual students involved.
2011
34
During Testing Procedures
• Do not allow students to bubble in the
demographic fields on the front of the answer
document.
• No cell phones or other two-way
telecommunication devices (students or
teachers).
• Must give grade 5 students state-supplied
rulers. CANNOT use other rulers.
• Must give students state-supplied math chart
and science chart.
• Students may use highlighters in non-scorable
test booklets.
2011
35
During Testing Procedures
• No scratch paper for any TAKS testing (except
as an accommodation or for an online test).
• Test administrators are not allowed to answer
any question relating to the content of the test
itself.
• Test administrators must actively monitor
students during testing.
• Test administrators cannot leave the room
unless a trained substitute test administrator is
present.
• May change testing rooms as long as test
security is not breached.
2011
36
During Testing Procedures
• Reinforcing, reviewing, and/or distributing
testing strategies during an assessment is strictly
prohibited.
• You cannot require students to use any particular
test taking strategy. Students can use test taking
strategies but you cannot require them to do so
during the testing. This includes first marking
answers in test booklet and then transferring
them later to the answer document.
• Students must be allowed to work (not sleep) at
their own pace. Students may not be directed to
speed up or slow down.
2011
37
During Testing Procedures
• Students must remain seated during testing
and are not allowed to talk while test
booklets are open.
• Students are not allowed to work on a
previous section of the test or a section that
has not yet been administered.
• Brief breaks in the testing room are allowed
at the discretion of the test administrator.
• Lunch breaks are permitted, however
students must remain as a group and be
monitored by a trained test administrator so
they do not discuss the test.
2011
38
Time Requirements for Testing
• All TAKS tests are untimed. Each student must be
allowed to have as much time as necessary to
respond to every test item.
• Districts are not required to test beyond the
regular school hours, but they are free to do so if
they so choose.
– UT-UCS guidelines for state testing – All campuses will allow at
least one additional hour beyond the normal school ending time
for students to complete their TAKS tests.
– It is important for all campuses to begin testing within the first
hour of the school day to allow students adequate time to
complete their TAKS tests.
2011
39
Dictionaries and Thesauruses
• It is required to provide English-language
dictionaries and thesauruses to students for the
following TAKS, TAKS Acc., and TAKS-M tests.

students.
• It is allowable for students to use their own
calculators.
• Districts are required to ensure that all
calculator memory is cleared and all additional
applications are disabled for testing.
2011
41
Grade 3 Mathematics Reading Assistance
• Grade 3 math reading assistance is part of the
standard administration for all students taking TAKS,
TAKS Accommodated, or TAKS-M.
• Upon the request of the student, the test
administrator may provide assistance by reading any
word, phrase, or sentence of a test question or
answer choice that the student is experiencing
difficulty reading.
• Permitted on an individual basis only for any grade 3
student who requests it.
• Test administrators do not receive an additional copy
of the test to provide mathematics reading
assistance.
• Reading assistance is not an oral administration.
Reading the entire grade 3 math test is an oral
administration.
2011
42
After Testing Procedures
• The test administrator must inspect the
answer document to be sure the student
bubbled in answers as instructed. This is also
the last time to have students erase stray
marks and darken answer choices if needed.
• After student testing materials are collected,
students may be allowed to quietly read
books or leave the testing room. (Must not
disturb others still testing.)
• Immediately after each test session, the test
administrator must return all test materials to
the campus coordinator.
2011
43
Test Accommodations
2011
44
Testing Accommodations
• Accommodations are practices and procedures that
provide equitable access during instruction and
assessments for students with special needs.
• Accommodations are intended to reduce or even
eliminate the effects of a student’s disability or
limitation; however, they do not reduce learning
expectations.
• The accommodation must be documented in the IEP
or IAP for the student and must be used in regular
instruction and assessment for the student.
2011
45
Accommodations Manual
• Contains information about accommodations
for TAKS, TAKS (Accommodated), TAKS-M, LAT,
and TELPAS Reading tests.
• Accommodations provided are documented on
the answer documents.

Campus, Group, and Class
Identification Sheets
• There is only one campus & group ID sheet and only
one Class ID sheet form for all TAKS versions
• There must be at least one class identification sheet
for each test group.
• A separate campus and group identification sheet
must be completed for each group and testing
program tested.
• Incorrect counts on the identification sheets will
delay the processing of our results and score reports.
• Check that the number of answer documents match
the number indicated on the identification sheets.

Packaging Materials
• Separate scorable from nonscorable
materials.
• Separate voided answer documents from
voided scorable test booklets.
• Use a paper band to band each group of
scorable materials.
– If you have all of a group in one band
then you may leave the band blank.
– If you have more than one banded set
for a single group then write the
campus, grade/test/form information on
the band and number 1 of #, 2 of #, etc.
