Submit new assessments for students at each reporting period. EoC, CCR, ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY SCREENER (NMELPAPT), Home/Heritage Language and the NM Language Usage Survey (LUS) assessments must be submitted at each reporting period. Title I Part D Assessment Data may be submitted at any reporting period, but will be reviewed and verified during the EOY collection and as needed during the summer collection.
- Dual Discrepancy Model Assessment – In identifying children with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD), effective July 1, 2009, public agencies MUST implement the Dual Discrepancy Model in grades K-3. A Dual Discrepancy exists when the student both performs below the level evidenced by grade-level peers AND also shows a learning rate substantially below that of grade-level peers. (NMAC 126.96.36.199)
- Early Childhood Assessments – Students who enroll in the program MORE than 30 days from the end of the school year require an EARLY CHILDHOOD “ENTRY” assessment in all three content areas (ex. BEHAVIOR ENTRY, SOCIAL EMOTIONAL ENTRY and LANGUAGE ACQUISITION ENTRY. This includes students receiving Speech Articulation Only services. Submit the ENTRY and EXIT EARLY CHILDHOOD assessment only ONCE in the school year in the first reporting period after the test is administered (40D, 80D, 120D or EOY). The ENTRY test for EARLY CHILDHOOD assessments must be administered within 30 DAYS of the child’s program start date in the current school year. The EXIT test for EARLY CHILDHOOD assessments is administered at least six months after the ENTRY test was administered. An EXIT test is required if the student was enrolled in the program for at least six months. Standard Achieved Code is now used to collect the PROGRESS ASSESSMENT VALUE and is to be submitted into STARS for each of the Early Childhood EXIT Assessments. Discontinue use of the Standard Achieved Code for the Early Childhood ENTRY assessments. When determining the student’s PROGRESS ASSESSMENT VALUE, utilize the Childhood Outcomes Summary Form (COSF).
- ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY SCREENER (NMELPAPT) is used to logically represent the current screening/placement test for potential EL students. This is only for the Placement/Screening Assessment for the initial identification of EL students in grades 1-12. Not for Kindergarten Students.
- WIDA Access Placement Test (WAPT) is used to screen potential EL students in Kindergarten ONLY. The test has three domains;
- Listening and Speaking – submit on the 40th day and only for new students thereafter.
- Reading – submit on the 120th day and only for new students thereafter.
- Writing – submit on the 120th day and only for new students thereafter.
- Language Usage Survey (LUS) is used to identify potential EL students based on the parental responses regarding the child’s use of language. Submit on the 40th day and only for new students thereafter.
- Home/Heritage Language Proficiency Assessments (for students enrolled in a Bilingual Multicultural Education Program). According to BME statute and regulation, the home language means a language other than English that is the primary or heritage language spoken at home or in the community. The heritage language means a language other than English that is inherited from a family, tribe, community or country of origin.
- Student Assistance Team (SAT) referral
- Career College Readiness Exams-Exams include ACCU, AP, COMP, IB, PLAN, ASVAB, TABE, KEYS. EXAMS may be administered at any time. CCR courses/exams are used for evaluating career and college readiness. Test data can be submitted on 40, 80, 120, and End of Year. ACT, ACT Aspire, AP, SAT, PSAT and SATSUB will be provided to the PED by the College Board and therefore do not need to be submitted to the PED.
- End of Course Exams (EoC) Exam administered after the completion of a course or a set of courses. The PED offers numerous state-produced EoCs, and districts have the option of developing their own with state guidance and approval. EoC test data can be submitted into STARS on 40, 80, 120, and End of Year. Each EoC is identified by a subject, grade range, and version number which together make up the Assessment Fact Item Description. Specific version numbers and Item Descriptions are permissible only during specified date ranges. (See link below for reference to list of versions, Item Descriptions and date ranges.) District-created EoCs that are available for statewide use are also listed on the table with specified version numbers. EoCs may be administered during specified testing windows only. These windows are established and published by the Assessment and Evaluation Bureau on an annual basis. EoC exams may be used in teacher evaluation and for high school students to demonstrate competency in math, reading, writing, science, and social studies to meet graduation requirements. All EoCs have Frameworks that identify the assessed standards.
