It was hard to sit through the training and the quizzes could not calculate the % correctly.


This course is designed to fulfill the Oregon Department of Education Test Administration training for the 2015-2016 school year.  These modules must be completed yearly, and a test assurance form must be signed by the TA prior to staff being allowed to administer any part of the OAKS Online Testing System--Including OAKS Science, ELPA 21, and the Smarter Balanced Assessment in Reading or Math.

The primary objectives of these trainings are as follows:

  • Help TAs understand the roles and responsibilities of Test Administrators.
  • Understand how to use the Test Administration Manual (TAM) to understand requirements for a valid test administration.
  • Learn what's new in the OAKS Online system.
  • Learn where to find resources and tools
  • Understand how to appropriately administer accommodations and supports.

At the end of the training modules you will be asked to take two-three quizzes.  The first will cover the Test Administrator Overview, Test Security, and Accessibility Supports (which are required for all TAs).  The second one will cover the specific tests you are administering (SBA, OAKS Science, ELPA21).  You will need to take the quiz for each assessment were you serve as a TA.
