ELP Assessment Update April 2018

WIDA Alternate ACCESS Materials Return

May 4 is the deadline for all secure WIDA materials to be picked up by UPS. Materials that are not picked up by May 4 will be considered late and scoring of these tests will be delayed. Please ensure that you have return labels for your materials (these are ordered through DRC’s help desk). If you need Do Not Process labels, UPS labels, or DRC Return labels, all of these are  ordered through the DRC held desk.

Please also ensure that all of your testing booklets have a student-specific or school-specific label on them. If you need school-specific labels, please send Leslie Huff at OSPI the information below immediately. The labels will take 4 to 5 business days to arrive in your district and must be on the booklets for them to be scored.

ELPA21 Screener: Kindergarten Round-Up Upload Tool

We have received feedback and identified a need for districts to be able to bulk upload incoming Kindergartners into TIDE for the purpose of ELPA21 Screening. With that in mind we have created an application in WAMS for mass uploading your pre-enrolled 2018-19 Kindergarten students. Please note that this is available in addition to the existing procedure for adding individual students with Temp ID’s (for more details on Temp ID’s please review page 4 of the SRMAAG).

You can find this application in WAMS > Assessment Operations > Pre-Id > Kindergarten Round-Up. Files that submit successfully will validate that SSIDs being uploaded to TIDE are real SSIDs that have been issued to students. Only use this upload for Kindergarteners. All students uploaded will be assigned KG automatically.
