Required Training Components
District Test Coordinators (DTCs) must participate in annual test security and administration training provided by ODE. For 2016-17, DTCs must independently review the 2016-17 ODE-provided recorded training modules below by November 1, 2016 and register for one of the required ODE-facilitated Webinar sessions scheduled for November 8 - 10, 2016. DTCs must also use the ODE-provided training modules when conducting School Test Coordinator (STC) and Test Administrator (TA) trainings within their district. To provide flexibility in conducting local STC and TA trainings, ODE has posted each training module in both a recorded video format as well as the PowerPoint file with presenter notes. For a full description of training requirements by role, please refer to Section 1.5 Training Requirements of the 2016-17 Test Administration Manual.

After watching all 2016-17 ODE-provided training modules, DTCs must complete the 2016-17 Training Survey by November 1, 2016. The purpose of the training survey is to check for comprehension of the test security and administration requirements and to provide DTCs with an opportunity to submit questions they would like addressed during the ODE-facilitated Webinar sessions.
