Students in PSIS who attend Out-of-State Facilities or In-State Non-Approved Facilities /core/fileparse.php/51/urlt/Students-in-PSIS-who-attend-Out-of-State-Facilities-or-In-State-Non-Approved-Facilities.pdf
This guidance is intended for District Administrators with students in PSIS who attend Out-of-State Facilities or who are in In-State Non-Approved Facilities. Connecticut public school districts are responsible to test students in the Public School Information System (PSIS) who are enrolled in out-of-state facilities or are enrolled in state non-approved schools. This document includes information on how to administer the Connecticut Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Field Test, Connecticut Alternate Science Field Test, Smarter Balanced assessment, and the Connecticut Alternate Assessment (CTAA). It is also required that districts test these students in Grade 11 who are enrolled in out-of-state or in-state non-approved programs with the Connecticut SAT School Day assessment.
Learner Characteristics Inventory (LCI) /core/fileparse.php/51/urlt/LCI.pdf

This inventory will be used by  Connecticut Teachers Administering the Alternate (TEA) to describe the population of students who are assessed with the Connecticut Alternate Assessment (CTAA) and the Alternate Science. These students comprise less than 1% of the total tested student population and are students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. The LCI is required to support the determination of the appropriate assessment at the  Planning and Placement Team (PPT) and must be submitted in the Data Entry Interface (DEI) in order to register a student for participation in either Alternate Assessment (CTAA and Alternate Science).

Student Response Check (SRC) for Paper Administration /core/fileparse.php/51/urlt/StudentResponseCheck_PaperForm.pdf

This paper form may be used for the CTAA or CTAS.  The SRC is a task that the Teacher Administering the Alternate (TEA) use to evaluate the student’s ability to demonstrate an observable response prior to beginning the CTAA or CTAS. This content-neutral task provides an opportunity for the TEA to observe and confirm the student’s mode of response. The online SRC is available for the CTAA only and may be accessed via the Test Delivery System (TDS) Student Interface.
