Chapter 6: Testing and Student Logins

Note: For information about tests administered under the Instructional Tools tab, see the DLM? documentation.

After your organization has entered users, students, and rosters, you will use Educator Portal to obtain student login information to be entered into KITE? Client.

Depending upon your assessment program, the test sessions and login information are accessed on one of two tabs in the Manage Tests menu, either Test Coordination or Test Management. Only a few user roles (like Building and District Test Coordinator) have access to tests and login information on the Test Coordination tab, while many more user roles have some access to tests and/or login information on the Test Management tab.

This chapter first discusses the use of test tickets vs. daily access codes. Then, the chapter is divided by tasks that can be performed on the Test Management tab, tasks that can be performed on the Test Coordination tab, and tasks that can be performed on the Projected Testing tab.

Test Tickets

Note: For 2018 high-stakes, summative testing, cPass? and DLM use test tickets.

Understanding Test Tickets

Test tickets contain the students' login usernames, passwords, ticket numbers, and other information used when the student takes a test. Test tickets are generated in Educator Portal and can be accessed from the Manage Tests menu on either the Test Management tab or Test Coordination tab. If you are unsure where to locate test tickets, check with your organization.

Note: For more information on entering test tickets into the KITE Client software, refer to the Educator's Guide to KITE Client Software.

To print test tickets, you first download (or open) a PDF that contains the test tickets. Multiple test tickets are contained on each page of the PDF, so the tickets will need to be separated (cut apart) before testing begins.

Note: Depending on your organization and role, you may be able to download a CSV file with test ticket information. This CSV file is described in Chapter 7: Reports.

Test Management Tab Within Educator Portal, under the Manage Tests menu, test tickets are displayed on the Test Management tab. On the Test Management tab, you will see a row for each roster assigned to a particular test. You can open an individual PDF to print the tickets associated with one roster, or select multiple rows to create one PDF with the tickets for multiple rosters.

The assessment program name, roster name, and educator's last name are printed on the upper right side of the test ticket. The dotted lines are guidelines for use when separating the test tickets.

6.4

Test Coordination Tab Within Educator Portal, under the Manage Tests menu, test tickets for certain assessments appear on the Test Coordination tab. On the Test Coordination tab, you will see a separate row for each subject and grade level. You can open an individual PDF to print all of the tickets for a subject and grade level, e.g., all third-grade mathematics test tickets, or you can select multiple rows to create one PDF with the tickets for multiple grades and content areas.

Hint: Because the PDFs can contain multiple tickets for each student, you may save time by opening only one PDF per subject and grade level.

The assessment program name is printed on the upper right side of the test ticket. The dotted lines are guidelines for use when separating the test tickets.
