Resource Description

This Test Coordinator’s Manual (TCM) for summative assessments is intended for staff (District Administrators, District Test Coordinators, and School Test Coordinators) who play a role in the administration of Connecticut Comprehensive Assessment Program online assessments. This manual provides procedural and policy guidance to administer each assessment. All policy referenced in this guide should be applied to the following tests for the Connecticut Comprehensive Assessment Program: Connecticut Alternate Assessment (CTAA) for English language arts (ELA) and mathematics; Connecticut Mastery Test and Connecticut Academic Performance Test in Science (CMT/CAPT Science); Smarter Balanced for English language arts (ELA) and mathematics.

This presentation was used for the 2017 District Test Coordinator Workshop.  It is intended for Test Coordinators.

This guide provides an overview of the individual student score reports generated for the Smarter Balanced assessments in English language arts/literacy and mathematics. It may be used by teachers and administrators to help interpret a student’s assessment scores as seen in the Online Reporting System (ORS).
