Rotating Score Validation Process for the Initial ELPAC

Rotating Score Validation Process for the Initial ELPAC

Approximately 10 percent of local education agencies (LEAs) in California have been identified by the California Department of Education (CDE) to take part in the Rotating Score Validation Process (RSVP) for the Initial English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC). These identified LEAs will return their scannable kindergarten through grade two Writing Answer Books to the testing contractor Educational Testing Service (ETS) after all domains have been administered, locally scored Writing and Speaking scores have been entered in the Data Entry Interface (DEI) and parent notification of the results have been completed. This process will help to produce item statistics for the Initial ELPAC, validate scores and provide technical assistance for scoring.

Initial ELPAC Edition 1 paper–pencil assessment

  • RSVP and non-RSVP LEAs follow the same process of entering scores and responses into the Data Entry Interface (DEI). Enter scores for the Writing and Speaking domains and responses for the Listening and Reading domains into the DEI for each student.
  • Securely store used Answer Books administered until June 30, 2021.
  • LEAs will not return 2019–2020 Edition 1 Initial ELPAC materials to ETS.

Computer-based Initial ELPAC

  • RSVP LEAs will administer the Writing domain to students in K–2 using the scannable 2020–2021 Form 1 Writing Answer Books. Non-RSVP LEAs received nonscannable Form 1 Writing Answer Books.
  • RSVP and non-RSVP LEAs will administer all other domains to students in kindergarten through grade twelve using the TDS. The Listening and Reading domains will be scored through the TDS. Speaking scores for all grades must be entered in the DEI. Writing scores for K–2 must be entered in the DEI and Writing scores for grades three through twelve must be entered in the Teacher Hand Scoring System (THSS). Student responses in the TDS will automatically be received by ETS for back scoring as part of the RSVP process.
  • Official Student Score Reports will be available in TOMS after all domains have been administered and scored, within less than 24 hours.
  • LEAs must return their scannable K–2 Writing Answer Books to ETS after parent/guardian notification of the results has been completed and a pre-identification (Pre-ID) label has been received for the student. Only Answer Books completed by students should be collected and sent to ETS. If students were administered the Initial ELPAC remotely and did not complete or return the Answer Book to the LEA, LEAs do not need to return these Answer Books to ETS.
  • The audio capture during the Speaking domain is not mandatory if students are administered the Initial ELPAC remotely.

The following are mandatory steps to be completed:

  • Pre-ID labels and Group Identification Sheets (GIS) are generated monthly based on when an official Student Score Report has been generated in TOMS.
  • Pre-ID labels are to be attached to the Answer Books prior to shipping to ETS; do not send Answer Books without the Pre-ID label attached. You must confirm that the student name on the Pre-ID label matches the student name on the Answer Book. Pre-ID labels will be shipped to the LEA automatically based on the schedule in the Materials Return Dates table in the next section.
  • Follow the instructions in the 2020–2021 Initial ELPAC Rotating Score Validation Process User Instructions for Test Materials Handling After Testing web document.

Comparison Report

  • Guide to the 2020–2021 Initial ELPAC Score Comparison Report (Coming Soon!)
  • With the computer-based Initial ELPAC, ETS raters will only score the Writing domain to compare the local scores entered in the DEI (for grades K–2) or the THSS (for grades 3–12).
  • Comparison reports will be posted by mid-November, mid-December and a final file by end of January 2021.
  • An email notification will be sent to the LEA ELPAC coordinator when a comparison report is available for the LEA.
