CAASPP: CAA Test Examiner Tutorial Is Available Now in Moodle
CAASPP email update, August 9, 2022.
Dear California Educator:
The 2022–23 California Alternate Assessment (CAA) Test Examiner Tutorial is now available in the Moodle Training Site (Moodle) .
The Test Examiner Tutorial covers general information and highlights best practices for the administration of the CAA for Science and the CAAs for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. The tutorial does not contain any secure content.
A Moodle user account is necessary to access the tutorial. Your local educational agency (LEA) California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) coordinator should contact you with information about how accounts will be set up for your LEA.
As a test examiner, you will access the tutorial using the Moodle enrollment key provided by your LEA CAASPP coordinator.
The CAA Test Examiner Tutorial contains three sections—General, CAA for Science, and CAAs for ELA and Mathematics. All test examiners must complete the General section of the tutorial and at least one subject area section to receive a certificate of completion.
Test examiners will receive the CAA for Science Certificate of Completion upon completion of both the General and the CAA for Science sections, and the CAAs for ELA and Mathematics Certificate of Completion upon completing both the General and the CAAs for ELA and Mathematics sections.
- Form assignments for the CAA for Science are available on the CAA for Science Form Assignments web page.
- Form assignments for the CAAs for ELA and Mathematics will be available in fall 2022 on the CAAs for ELA and Mathematics Form Assignments web page.
Please note that the form number for science may be different than the form number for ELA and mathematics.
Second scoring is the process of having another test examiner score the same student's rubric-scored items simultaneously, yet independently, from the student's primary test examiner (TE). The purpose of second scoring is to establish and document standardized scoring procedures and evaluate the validity of the rubric-scored items.
A subsection of LEAs assigned to Form 2 for the CAAs for ELA and mathematics will be required to participate in second scoring for test validity purposes. Second scoring assignments will be available fall 2022. Test examiners assigned to second score should be sure to complete the "Second Scoring"portion of the Test Examiner Tutorial.
CAA for Science Planning Guides
The CAA for Science consists of four embedded performance tasks (PTs) that should be administered one at a time in any order, beginning September 6, 2022, through the end of the school year or July 17, 2023, whichever comes first. Administration of an embedded PT should begin as soon as related instruction is taught. CAA for Science Administration Planning Guides are available to help with early planning and scheduling of the embedded PTs.
Test examiners who have questions about the administration of the CAAs should address them to the CAASPP test site coordinator.
