BEST Plus Scoring Refresher Training - July 26, 2012
Registration is closed for this event
This session is designed to strengthen the scoring accuracy skills learned by trained test administrators in the initial training workshop. Participants will refresh their understanding of the scoring rubric and recalibrate their scoring in order to ensure reliable and accurate scores in Listening Comprehension, Language Complexity, and Communication. Through the use of the Scoring Refresher Videos, the Scoring Activity Video, and the Scoring Refresher Workbook, test administrators will determine their scoring accuracy.
Each participant and their administrator will receive a final Scoring Activity Feedback Sheet. On the Feedback Sheet, overall performance scores will be given for each of the three scoring rubric components. In each of these components, scores will fall into three categories of scoring accuracy:
These Feedback Sheets will give program managers and staff the opportunity to remediate areas of scoring difficulty to ensure that only those who are able to score accurately participate in BEST Plus test administration. Scoring Activity results will be sent to both the participants themselves and their agency’s program manager.
Program managers must ensure that test administrators with “unacceptable” results participate in remediation activities either in-house or through the RAEN. Participants will meet with the RAEN’s BEST Plus trainer for the final remediation activity.
Test administrators should review the Test Administrators Guide and bring it to this session. Test administrators who have completed this training within the past year should bring their Scoring Refresher Workbooks. Those attending this session for the first time will receive workbooks.
