CAASPP: CAA Test Examiner Tutorial Is Available Now in Moodle
ELPAC email update, September 7, 2021.
Dear California Educator:
The 2021–22 California Alternate Assessment (CAA) Test Examiner Tutorial is now available in the new Moodle Training Site (Moodle):
- General Section—available now
- CAA for Science Section—available now
- CAAs for English Language Arts/Literacy (ELA) and Mathematics Section—available December 2021
Prior to administering any CAA for Science embedded performance task (PT), test examiners must complete both the General and the CAA for Science sections to obtain the CAA for Science Certificate of Completion.
Test examiners administering CAAs for ELA and mathematics can return December 2021 to complete that section and obtain the CAAs for ELA and Mathematics Certificate of Completion.
A Moodle user account is necessary for all test examiners. Your local educational agency (LEA) California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) coordinator should contact you soon 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.
Completing the Course
To receive the CAA for Science Certificate of Completion, test examiners must view each video completely and answer all of the "Checks for Understanding" questions correctly in both the General and CAA for Science sections. A check mark to the right of each item will indicate successful completion.
Download and save or print the Certificate of Completion for reference. Your LEA CAASPP coordinator and test site coordinator can confirm your completion status by accessing the LEA Moodle Account Reporting feature.
Planning Guides and Form Assignments
The CAA for Science consists of four embedded PTs that can be administered in any order, beginning September 7, 2021, through the end of the school year or July 15, 2022, whichever comes first. The Administration Planning Guides and form assignments are available on the following web pages:
- CAA for Science Administration Planning Guides : These guides help with early planning and scheduling of the embedded PTs.
- CAA for Science Form Assignments or CAAs for ELA and Mathematics Form Assignments : The form assignments web pages are searchable by county, LEA, school, or County, District, School (CDS) code.
Please note that the form number for science may be different than the form number for ELA and mathematics.
Test examiners who have questions about the administration of the CAAs should address them to the CAASPP test site coordinator.
