GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS


Reminder: Annual DTC Training Requirements (REPEAT)

This is a reminder that District Test Coordinators (DTCs) must participate in the annual test security and administration training provided by ODE. DTCs who do NOT participate in annual test security and administration training will have their current access to the OSAS system revoked after the final ODE-facilitated webinar and may not receive important updates sent to the DTC listserv thereafter. For more information, please see the “Reminder: Annual DTC Training Requirements” article posted in the August 9 A&A Update.


TEST ADMINISTRATION


ELPA


Warning Message When Creating Multiple Temp IDs For Same Student

If you need to create a second Temp ID for students taking the ELPA Screener assessment, you will receive the “Student Existed Warning” message. This message alerts you that the student already has a Temp ID, and it does not prevent you from creating the new Temp ID. You are able to move ahead with creating the Temp ID by clicking the Continue button. You will then proceed to the “Add Student” confirmation message.


ELPA21 Braille Form Order Window Now Open (REPEAT)

This is a reminder that the English Language Proficiency Assessment for the 21st Century (ELPA21) is available in a paper/pencil Braille format. To order, District Test Coordinators should complete the 2018-19 Braille Order Form and submit it by October 2, 2018.

If you have questions, please contact your Regional ESD Partner.


ACCOUNTABILITY & REPORTING


First Period Cumulative ADM Collection Window Opens September 27

The collection window for First Period Cumulative ADM opens September 27 at 1 PM. First Period ADM is the submission of ADM records for the period of July 1, 2018 to October 1, 2018. You can find information about the First Period Cumulative ADM collection on the ADM Resources page and in the web training from September 20.

If you have any questions, please contact your Regional ESD Partner or Amanda Hiaasen at 503-947-5674.


17-18 Report Card Narrative Data Collection Closes September 28

The Report Card Narrative Data Collection will close on September 28, 2018. The Report Card Narrative Data Collection is located within the Achievement Data Insight (ADI) application. If you do not have access, please contact your District Security Administrator.

The collection allows you to save your work in progress and come back to it later. Narratives must be submitted, not just saved, before ODE will publish them. You will see a row of green checkmarks on the maintenance page when the narrative for an institution has been successfully submitted. ODE strongly recommends previewing your submission in both English and Spanish before submission.

Training on how to submit the Report Card Narrative was conducted on June 5, and a recording is available. If you have questions regarding the Report Card Narrative Data Collection, please contact Elyse Bean at 503-947-5831 or your Regional ESD Partner.
