Procedures Manual for the Colorado Student Assessment Program, 2001-2002.
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver.
As the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP) has expanded, growing to 26 tests in 8 grades by 2002, new administration procedures have been needed. As these test administration procedures evolved, they were communicated through different avenues. This document consolidates the procedures to facilitate better understanding and more consistent application. All public school students enrolled in the grades tested must be accounted for in the CSAP. A large part of the manual is devoted to explaining how to handle special situations so that all students can participate meaningfully in Colorado's state testing program. The manual contains a list of Colorado Department of Education contacts and a list of important CSAP dates. Information is grouped into these sections: (1)"Responsible Practices throughout the Assessment Process"; (2) "Administration"; (3) "Accommodations"; (4) "CSAP and Students with Disabilities: Which Test Should They Take?"; (5) "English Language Learners"; (6) "CSAP Administration of Students with Special Circumstances"; and (7) "CSAP Reports." An appendix contains some additional information about testing conditions and practices. (SLD)
