 The February Biology window is designed for students completing the course during the second trimester.
Students who completed the Biology course prior to this school year and did not fulfill a high school
science assessment requirement (e.g., ISTEP+ Grade 10 Science) should take the ILEARN Biology ECA
during the February or Second Trimester window. Students who need accommodated forms such as large
print, braille, or Spanish should take the Biology test during the February window.
3
 The April or May Biology and U.S. Government ECA window is designed for students completing either or
both courses at the end of the second semester or third trimester.
* ILEARN paper-and-pencil test windows close one week early to accommodate on-time reporting timelines.

Students to Be Tested
The Testing Program for Grades 3 through 8 and ILEARN End-of-Course
Assessments (ECAs)
Each ILEARN assessment contains standards-based multiple-choice, constructed-response,
and technology-enhanced items (online format only) developed to measure Indiana
Academic Standards. Technology-enhanced items are only available on the online test
delivery system platform.

ILEARN assessments will be administered online to all students. The online assessments
for English/Language Arts and Mathematics have a computer-adaptive segment and
a Performance Task segment. Science and Biology have a fixed-form segment and
Performance Task segment. Social Studies and U.S. Government assessments each
consist of one fixed-form test segment. The Science assessment will be computer-adaptive
beginning with the 2019–2020 school year.

NOTE: A small quantity of paper-and-pencil test forms are available for students with
documented paper-and-pencil testing accommodations and students who, for religious
reasons, object to the use of such technology. Paper-and-pencil assessment books for
all content areas contain fixed test forms.

Managing Student Demographic Information
Student data will be reported to AIR from IDOE via nightly data files submitted into TIDE.
All student data must be accurate in TIDE prior to student testing. Changes to student
data, including accommodations updates may take up to 24 hours to update. Please note
roles and responsibilities required of both IDOE and corporations and nonpublic schools.

ILEARN 3–8
IDOE will:

    ■■ Extract student data from schools’ DOE-RT or DOE-EM submissions and Indiana IEP.
    ■■ Submit names of participating students and demographic information to AIR via a
       nightly data exchange with student data submitted to TIDE.

Corporations and Nonpublic Schools must:

    ■■ Report student accommodations formally documented in a Section 504 Plan,
       Individual Learning Plan, or Service Plan (non-public or Choice) via the DOE-TA
       collection throughout the data exchange window, as needed.
    ■■ Report newly enrolled students and/or update accommodations, as needed and in a
       timely manner, via RT/EM, Indiana IEP, and/or a DOE-TA submission.

NOTE: If these updates occur during the test window, the student will be unable to test
until the day following the data update or submission.

ILEARN ECAs: Biology and U.S. Government
Corporations and Nonpublic Schools must report names of participating students and
demographic information, including accommodations formally documented in a 504 Plan,
ILP, or Service Plan, to IDOE via the DOE-TL collection.

The DOE-TL collection window for ILEARN ECA test administrations will remain open
until the day before the test window closes.

Note for Winter 2018 ONLY: IDOE reported student accommodations from the Indiana
IEP on October 15 in preparation for the Winter 2018 ILEARN Biology ECA. Schools
must update the Indiana IEP to reflect any changes approved by a student’s Case
Conference Committee after October 15. The school must then contact IDOE to ensure
that such changes are also reflected in TIDE.

The nightly data exchange from the Indiana IEP will go into effect ahead of the Spring
2019 ILEARN assessments in April.

Timing Guidance
The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) defined scheduling guidance for all
ILEARN assessments (ILEARN 3–8 and Biology and U.S. Government End-of-Course
Assessments) beginning with the 2018–2019 school year. Schools and corporations
should consider this information when creating local test schedules. Contact IDOE with
questions (INassessments@doe.in.gov).
ILEARN Assessment Structure

        ●● Mathematics: One computer-adaptive test (CAT) segment and one Performance
           Task (PT)
        ●● English/Language Arts (ELA): One CAT segment and one PT consisting of two
           segments for a total of three segments
     ■■ Science (Grades 4 and 6) and Biology ECA
        ●● One fixed-form test segment and one PT
     ■■ Social Studies (Grade 5) and U.S. Government ECA

Anticipated Average Testing Times
Untimed practice tests are available via AIR’s Secure Browser beginning October 1.
Corporations and schools must administer each online content-specific ILEARN practice
test to students at least once before students participate in the operational assessment.
Please review IDOE’s Practice Test Guidance for more details.

While all ILEARN assessments are untimed, IDOE defined this guidance to help schools
plan their local testing schedules. The table outlines the number of test segments per
tested content area and the anticipated average testing times for administering each test
segment. All testing times are approximate and reflect estimated time students will
likely need to respond to both operational and embedded field test items.

Scheduling Tests
How much time will students have to complete the ILEARN assessments?
All ILEARN assessments are untimed and students will proceed at their own pace. AIR
and IDOE set forth suggested testing times to assist corporations and schools when
defining local testing schedules (see Anticipated Average Testing Times, above).

Students must complete all grade-level assessments by the last day of the established
four-week assessment window.

Does it matter which content area assessments schools administer first?
Schools may administer the content area assessments in any order, but students should
complete all content area test segments before moving onto a different content area
(e.g., Students complete all Mathematics test segments before beginning any Science
test segments).

What flexibility exists for corporations and schools to schedule assessments?
The degree of flexibility is dependent on the test segment(s) students must complete.
The following guidance outlines specific considerations for specific test segments when
planning local schedules.

                                   ILEARN 2018–2019 TEST COORDINATOR’S MANUAL             5
■■ Computer-Adaptive Tests and Fixed-Form Tests in the Non-Performance Task
       Segments (All content areas)
      ●● Students may start and finish a test segment in a single day; or
      ●● Students may start and finish a test segment over the course of multiple days (see
         example):
        • The Test Administrator (TA) may have students begin a test segment on Day 1,
          and allow students to finish test segment on Day 2 (see Pause Rules on the
          next page).
      ●● Students may start and finish the Grade 5 Social Studies and U.S. Government
         ECA within a single day.
      ●● A student can enter and exit a test with the TA’s approval an unlimited number of
         times while the student’s test is active.
    ■■ Performance Tasks (Mathematics, English/Language Arts, Science)
      ●● Students must complete the CAT/fixed-form test segment (Non-Performance Task)
         and Performance Task (PT) for a given content area on at least two separate days.
         Students should complete the CAT/fixed-form test segment first (example, below).
        • Day 1: Students complete the Mathematics CAT segment.
        • Day 2: Students complete the Mathematics PT.

        Non-Performance                                       Performance Task
             Task
      ●● TAs may not administer the CAT/fixed-form test segment and PT to students in a
         single day.
      ●● Students must start and finish the Mathematics Performance Task within a single
         day. Students must start and finish the Science Performance Task within a single
         day.
      ●● The ELA Performance Task consists of two segments that must be administered to
         students over two consecutive days. The first segment must be administered on
         Day 1 and the second segment must be administered on Day 2:
        • Day 1 (Segment 1): Students complete passage-based items.
        • Day 2 (Segment 2): Students complete a passage-based extended writing item.
        • In the event that a student starts an ELA PT segment but is unable to finish it by
          the end of the day, (e.g., the student becomes ill, the school has a fire alarm, etc.)
          the student should proceed and complete the test segment the next school day.
        • Once the student begins an ELA PT segment, it will expire in three (3) business
          days. If a student is unable to complete the segment within three business days,
          the CTC or STC must submit an Irregularity Request in TIDE, complete and
          submit a Testing Irregularity Report to IDOE, and receive IDOE approval before
          the student will be allowed to complete the remaining items in the segment.

6       ILEARN 2018–2019 TEST COORDINATOR’S MANUAL
Pause Rules
Corporations and schools may find it necessary to pause a student’s CAT or fixed-form
test segment to accommodate a short break (e.g., student restroom visit) or an unexpected
test irregularity (e.g., sudden illness, weather emergency, unplanned fire alarm).

The pause rule applies only to the CAT or fixed-form (Non-Performance Task) test
segments. There is not a pause rule for Performance Task (PT) test segments. If a
student pauses their PT and logs out, they will be able to log back into the component and
access the PT where they left off before pausing the test as long as the PT is not expired.

During a Computer-Adaptive Test or Fixed-Form Test Segment
 ■■ If the student pauses a Non-Performance Task test segment for less than 20
    minutes, the student may revisit and/or change answers to previous test items
    within the current test segment.
 ■■ If the student pauses a Non-Performance Task test segment for more than 20
    minutes, please note the following:
    ●● The student must log back in to the student interface.
    ●● The student will be presented with the screen in the test delivery system containing
        the item(s) he or she was working on when the test segment was paused (if the
        screen contains at least one unanswered item) OR with the next screen containing
        a new test item (if all items on the previous page were answered by the student
        before the pause).
    ●● The student is NOT permitted to review or change any previously answered items,
        even if they are marked for review (with the exception of items on the screen that
        contain at least one item that was not yet answered by the student).
    ●● The student may change any answers on the screen if the screen contains both
        answered and unanswered items. The student may not go back and return to
        previous screens and cannot change answers to items on previous screens.

       Example: A single test screen in the test delivery system has items 4–10. A
       student answers items 4–7 and pauses the test for more than 20 minutes. When
       the student resumes testing, he or she can change answers to items 4–10 but
       cannot return to items 1–3 on an earlier screen.

       Example: A single test screen in the delivery system contains items 8–11 and
       a student answers all of those items before pausing the test for more than 20
       minutes. When the student resumes testing, he or she will begin on item 12 and
       cannot return to items 1–11.
Test Timeout (Due to Inactivity)
As a test security measure, any student will be logged out of test segment after 20 minutes
of inactivity in either the Non-PT or the PT segments. Activity is defined as selecting an
answer or navigation option in the test segment (e.g., selecting [Next] or [Back] or using
the Mark for Review drop-down list to navigate to another item). Simply moving the
mouse around the screen will not count as test activity. The student must actually select
something on the screen.

                                    ILEARN 2018–2019 TEST COORDINATOR’S MANUAL            7
■■ The student will receive a warning message 60 seconds before timeout occurs.
    ■■ The student must log back in to resume testing.
    ■■ The student may not revisit items on a previous screen in the current test segment
       after a timeout.
    ■■ The student who logs back in after a test timeout must complete the unfinished test
       segment he or she was working on before starting the next test segment in same
       content area.

Test Expiration for Online Assessments
All assessments (Performance Task and Non-Performance Tasks) must be
completed before the end of the established test window.

A student’s Non-Performance Task segment remains active until the student completes
and submits the test or until the established test window elapses. It is recommended
that students complete the Non-Performance Task segment of the test within five days of
starting the designated content area. Students must start and complete the Performance
Task within a single school day. All assessments (Performance Task and Non-Performance
Tasks) must be completed before the end of the established test window.

Students Absent During Test Administration / Make-up Testing
Upon return to school, the student must begin testing with rest of class per the testing
schedule. The school must then administer any remaining test segments in the content
area the student missed while absent before starting a new content area assessment.
The student must complete all his or her grade-level assessments before the end of the
test window.

Additional Scheduling / Timing Notes
    ■■ A constructed-response item is considered answered if the student has taken any
       action within the response area. This includes random keystrokes (e.g., “sdkjfasdgi”),
       one or more spaces using the spacebar, and clicking anywhere on any open-ended
       item (e.g., Short Answer, Table Input, Hot Text).
    ■■ Students who pause their tests for more than 20 minutes will no longer have access
       to the item’s digital notepad. The students will still have access to global notes they
       have recorded in the test delivery system for the test component.
    ■■ In the event of a technical issue (e.g., power outage or network failure), students
       will be logged out and their tests will automatically be paused. The students will
       need to log in again upon resuming their tests.
    ■■ Students must complete a paused test segment before starting the next test
       segment in the same content area (e.g., Mathematics, ELA).
    ■■ A student’s test remains active until the student completes and submits the test or
       until the established test window closes.

8       ILEARN 2018–2019 TEST COORDINATOR’S MANUAL
General Information
Test Security
All Test Administrators and Proctors must be trained in proper test security procedures,
sign a Testing Security and Integrity Agreement, and adhere to test security procedures.

It is unethical and shall be viewed as a violation of test security for any person to:

 ■■ Capture images of any part of the assessment via any electronic device;
 ■■ Duplicate in any way any part of the assessment;
 ■■ Examine, read, or review the content of any portion of the assessment;
 ■■ Disclose or allow to be disclosed the content of any portion of the assessment
    before, during, or after test administration;
 ■■ Discuss any ILEARN assessment item before, during, or after test administration,
    unless the item has been released by IDOE;
 ■■ Allow students access to any assessment content prior to scheduled test
    administration;
 ■■ Allow students to share information during or after test administration;
 ■■ Read any parts of the assessment to students except as indicated in the Test
    Administrator’s Manual or as part of an accommodation;
 ■■ Influence students’ responses by making any kind of gestures (for example, pointing
    to items, holding up fingers to signify item numbers or answer options) while
    students are taking the assessment;
 ■■ Instruct students to go back and reread or change responses after they have
    finished their assessments since this instruction may only be given before the
    students take the assessment;
 ■■ Review students’ responses;
 ■■ Read or review students’ scratch paper; or
 ■■ Participate in, direct, aid, counsel, assist in, encourage, or fail to report any
    violations of these test administration security procedures.

Additional security violations for paper-and-pencil testing include the following:

 ■■ Reading or reviewing any assessment book during or after testing;
 ■■ Changing any student’s response in an assessment book;
 ■■ Erasing any student’s response in an assessment book;
 ■■ Failing to return all assessment books and other test materials following each
    scheduled test administration session. Schools and corporations are required
    to maintain documentation of a secure check in and check out process for test
    materials.

                                    ILEARN 2018–2019 TEST COORDINATOR’S MANUAL           9
Test Administrators and Proctors may not assist students in answering questions. Test
Administrators and Proctors may not translate, reword, or explain any test content
for students. No test content may ever be discussed, copied, paraphrased, reviewed,
posted, texted, emailed, or photographed before, during, or after test administration.

Maintaining the security of all ILEARN test materials is crucial to obtaining valid and
reliable test results. Therefore, all test materials must be kept in locked storage, except
during the actual test administration. All user account information must be maintained
as secure information. Access to secure materials must be restricted to authorized
individuals only (e.g., Test Administrators and Test Coordinators). Do not photocopy or
duplicate any portion of the assessment books or other secure test materials at any time.

New for 2018–2019: Student Access Cards are comprised of the student’s first and last
name, and his or her 9-digit Student Test Number (STN). When combined, a student’s
name and STN become secure information that must be protected per student privacy
laws. Schools may compile this information locally or download from TIDE in advance
of testing. If using Student Access Cards, Test Administrators must distribute the correct
Student Access Card to each student to access the designated assessments and collect
all Student Access Cards immediately following each test session.

Secure test materials include, but may not be limited to:

 ■■ Student Access Cards containing student names, STNs, and/or birth dates
 ■■ student rosters containing STNs and/or birth dates
 ■■ accommodations reports containing student names, STNs, and/or birth dates
 ■■ paper-and-pencil assessment books (used and unused)
 ■■ read-aloud scripts
 ■■ used scratch paper

Non-Secure test materials include, but may not be limited to:

 ■■ ILEARN Test Coordinator’s Manual (TCM)
 ■■ all ILEARN Test Administrator’s Manuals (TAMs)
 ■■ packing materials (e.g., boxes, shipping labels).

It is the direct responsibility of all individuals who administer the test to follow security
procedures. Test security procedures and ethical testing practices are fully discussed
in the Indiana Assessment Policies, Administration, and Security Manual for the current
school year.

Test Irregularities and Security
Interruptions to Testing
Schools must not schedule an interruption to the school day, such as a fire drill, that will
in any way affect students during any day they are taking the ILEARN assessment.

10     ILEARN 2018–2019 TEST COORDINATOR’S MANUAL
The Test Administrator must immediately note the circumstances and time if an
interruption in testing occurs due to severe weather, technology failure, a fire alarm, or
any other natural or man-made occurrence.

If several students (i.e., an entire lab, classroom, school) experience a
technology-related issue(s) with the assessment immediately contact the Indiana
Assessment Help Desk at 866-298-4256.

Test Irregularities
TIDE allows Test Coordinators to indicate exceptions as irregularities (i.e., re-open
test, re-open test segment) that occur to the standardized test environment to manage
system access. IDOE is formalizing policy regarding the implementation of the
test irregularities request process. This guidance will be communicated prior to the
operational window to Test Coordinators. Formal documentation is required in addition
to the TIDE submission. Forms are accessible at the following location:
https://www.doe.in.gov/assessment/indiana-assessment-policies.

Test Invalidation
Participating in ILEARN is an opportunity provided to every student by Indiana law. Any
decision to invalidate a student’s test denies him or her the right to results and must
be weighed very carefully. Any time that a test is invalidated, it must be discussed with
the student’s parent or guardian. The ILEARN Report of Invalid Test form, located in an
appendix near the end of each Test Administrator’s Manual, provides a line to document
the school’s notification of the parent or guardian.

A test must be invalidated for a variety of reasons, such as when a student cheats, works
in a test segment other than the one being administered, or marks most or all answers
randomly during a given test segment. The Test Administrator must document any
invalidation and report it to the principal or Test Coordinator immediately following the
administration of the affected test segment. Test invalidations must be requested in TIDE.
Please consult the TIDE User Guide for details on how to request a test invalidation.

To invalidate a paper test, follow the instructions for returning scorable paper materials.
Paper tests will need to be invalidated in TIDE following the instructions in the TIDE
User Guide, which can be done 10 days after the paper test has been returned.

If it is determined that a student’s test needs to be invalidated. Look at the Student in
Sessions screen and take note of the test that needs to be invalidated. Once a test
has been invalidated, it cannot be reversed and the test cannot be scored.

Mathematics, English/Language Arts (ELA), and Science assessments each consist of
more than one test segment and therefore have specific invalidation requirements that
must be followed to ensure the entire test is invalidated. Invalidations must be requested
on each test segment – including two test segments for Mathematics and Science and
the three test segments for ELA. The ILEARN Grade 5 Social Studies assessment and
the optional U.S. Government ECA each consist of one test segment and only require
one invalidation request to invalidate the entire test.

a test.

Online Testing
Computer and Device Preparation
Each student workstation (testing device) must meet the specifications and be prepared
according to the instructions provided in the Technology Setup for Online Testing Quick
Guide, available on the ILEARN Assessment Portal (https://ilearn.portal.airast.org/).
An evaluation of device and network readiness may occur through utilization of the
Network Diagnostic Tool and/or an (optional) Infrastructure Trial. An Infrastructure Trial
simulates the loading and processing of an operational test administration. Instructions
for running an Infrastructure Trial and the required Statewide Readiness Test can be
found in the Indiana Technology Readiness Guide for AIR Assessments 2018–2019,
accessed in the Indiana Assessment Portal under Technology Resources located at
https://indiana.portal.airast.org/.

Corporation Test Coordinators must confirm with local IT staff that assessment devices
have been configured for online testing ahead of the required Statewide Readiness Test
on January 23, 2019.

Online Practice Test
Schools are required to administer the online practice test to students at least once for
each content area before students take the online assessment. Test Administrators must
allow students with testing accommodations ample time to practice with the appropriate
accommodations, such as Text-to-Speech, before administering the online assessment.

Practice tests are administered using the same Test Administrator interface and student
Secure Browser used to administer the operational tests. Test Administrators should
follow the same processes and testing guidelines for administering practice tests as
they will follow for operational tests.

Before Test Administrators administer the online practice test and the online
assessment, the must refer to the Test Administrator Manual for information regarding
the responsibilities of the Test Administrator and the setup and administration of the
online tests.

Paper-and-Pencil Practice Test
Schools are required to administer the paper-and-pencil practice test to students before
administering the paper-and-pencil test. The paper-and-pencil practice test is located on
the pages immediately leading up to the first test segment in each
paper-and-pencil assessment book. Once students have completed the practice test,
the Test Administrator must administer the first test segment. The Test Administrator
may first provide a short break, but must administer the first segment to students on the
same day as the practice test segment. Any subsequent segments in the assessment
book may be administered to students as time allows throughout the test window.

Chapter 3 During Test Administration
Support During Testing
During testing, a Test Administrator should not attempt to resolve technology issues if
doing so is disruptive to students. The Test Administrator must have a way to contact
the School Test Coordinator or Technology Coordinator without leaving the room
unattended.

Additional troubleshooting information is available in the TDS User Guide, available on
the Indiana Assessment Portal. If school personnel continue to have difficulty, they may
contact corporation personnel, or they may contact the Indiana Assessment Help Desk
toll-free at 866-298-4256 or by email at airindianahelpdesk@air.org, or by using the
chat feature: https://indiana.portal.airast.org/chat.stml.

In the event of a technical issue (e.g., power outage or network failure), students will
be logged out and the test will automatically be paused. The students will need to log in
again upon resuming the test.

Online Test Administration
The Test Delivery System (TDS) Online Testing System has two components:
 ■■ Test Administrators (TAs) use the TA Interface to create and manage test segments
    for student testing. Test sessions are created for students in a classroom being
    administered a test.
 ■■ Students use the Secure Browser to take the tests included in the test session.
 ■■ Two online testing devices are required for student testing for both practice and
    operational tests; one device is needed for the TA to initiate sessions, and the
    second device is for students.

TA Interface: Login and Test Setup
1. On the ILEARN Assessment Program Portal (http://ilearn.portal.airast.org), select
   your user role.

Chapter 4 After Test Administration
Test Coordinators primarily handle post-test administration activities for students who
test on paper-and-pencil versus online due to policies surrounding the return of secure
and non-secure testing materials.

When the test administration is complete, the STC prepares all materials for return. To
prepare the materials for return, school personnel use the School Packing List that came
with the original materials to ensure that all materials that were assigned to the school
are returned to the scoring vendor. A school packing list will be sent for all materials.

ALL printed test materials must be returned to the scoring vendor, regardless
of whether they have been used. All materials are delivered to Corporation Test
Coordinators for return to the scoring vendor. The Test Coordinator must verify that
the contents have all been returned and will seal the boxes after confirmation. Test
Administrators will return all test materials to the Test Coordinator after testing has
completed each day. Test Coordinators must return the following test materials to the
scoring vendor within 7 calendar days (5 business days) of the close of the test window
in order for student responses to be scored.

Please see Appendix C for additional information about returning paper-and-pencil
testing materials.

20     ILEARN 2018–2019 TEST COORDINATOR’S MANUAL
Appendix A:
Scribed Response Directions
The student should know the identity of the scribe before the day of testing. The scribe
should be familiar with and have experience scribing for the student. If the scribe is
unfamiliar with the student, the scribe and student should have the opportunity to
practice the scribing process together prior to taking the assessment. A one-on-one
test administration should always be used when a scribe is needed. The scribe should
ask the student to spell out loud any word he or she thinks is not within the range of
the student’s vocabulary or spelling abilities. A scribe should never read the reading
comprehension portions of the assessment to a student, nor should he or she coach a
student or hint to a student the meaning or spelling of a word.

The scribe must write/type exactly what the student dictates, without adding any
capitalization or punctuation unless directed by the student. No presumption is made
about whether a pause is indicative of the use of a comma, a period, or any other
punctuation.

When the student has finished dictating, the Test Administrator must present the
response to the student for review to ensure accuracy and approval before advancing
to the next question (e.g., “Did I write exactly what you said?”). For paper-and-pencil
assessments, the scribe must use a No. 2 pencil if recording student responses in
the student’s assessment book. The scribe must begin each response with the word
“scribe” in the response area for paper-and-pencil or online assessments. Do not write
“scribe” if a student does not respond or test in a given section; just leave it blank. Notify
your School Test Coordinator of any student that has scribed responses to make sure
the document is returned correctly for scoring.

Test Administrators must review the Accessibility and Accommodations Guidance
(https://www.doe.in.gov/assessment) for more information about scribing protocols.

Appendix B:
Large Print and Braille Editions
Refreshable braille is available in the Test Delivery System. Students who are blind or
have low vision may use this online tool for displaying braille characters to read text
output. Students who utilize this accommodation on a regular basis should be assigned
this online tool instead of the braille paper form. Large print and braille paper-and-pencil
materials will be packaged by school and shipped to the corporation for distribution by
the Corporation Test Coordinator. Contact your Corporation Test Coordinator before
requesting any additional large print or braille test materials.

Corporation Test Coordinators should assist schools to ensure that all processing
requirements for large print and braille materials are met. Refer to Appendix C in this
manual for instructions.

Appendix C:
Paper-and-Pencil Testing – For Test Coordinators
General Rules for Paper-and-Pencil Testing
The ILEARN ELA, Mathematics, and Science paper-and-pencil assessment books
contain the following segments:

 ■■ Practice test segment
 ■■ Non-Performance Task segment
 ■■ Performance Task
    ●● ELA will have two Performance Task segments (“Part 1” and “Part 2”) while
       Mathematics and Science will only have one Performance Task segment.
The ILEARN Social Studies and U.S. Government paper-and-pencil assessment books
contain the following segments:

 ■■ Practice test segment
 ■■ Non-Performance Task segment (Note: There are no Performance Task segments
    in the Social Studies and U.S. Government assessment books).

ELA, Mathematics and Science paper-and-pencil assessment books display the
Non-Performance Task segments separately from the Performance Task segments.
Students may not return to a previous segment of the test once it has been completed.

Student standard print and accommodated assessment books and read aloud scripts
are secure test materials. Maintaining the security of all test materials is critical to
obtaining valid and reliable assessment test results. All test materials must always be
maintained in locked storage, except during test administration. All individuals who
administer ILEARN assessments must follow security procedures.

Before Testing
Pre-ID Labels and Blank Student Labels for Assessment Books
Paper-and-pencil materials are sent to corporations for distribution to the schools
within the corporation. CTCs must affix Pre-ID labels on the front covers of students’
assessment books. Students who are pre-identified as needing standard print paper
assessment books prior to January 15 will receive their Pre-ID’ed assessment books
with a label already affixed to the front cover of the assessment book.

Blank student adhesive labels can be used in conjunction with TIDE to print individual
student Pre-ID information for students who were not pre-identified prior to the materials
due in district date, or for students who use accommodated assessment books. For
information on how to print out an individual student Pre-ID label using TIDE, please
refer to the TIDE User Guide, which is posted to the ILEARN Assessment Portal. If a
student is missing their Pre-ID information, Test Administrators should contact their

                                  ILEARN 2018–2019 TEST COORDINATOR’S MANUAL               23
school Test Coordinator. Blank labels are included with all paper-and-pencil materials
shipments. Please contact the AIR Help Desk if additional blank labels are needed.

CTCs will distribute the materials to individual schools upon receipt. Schools should
immediately inventory the materials to confirm that there are enough materials for
all students to test prior to testing. Corporations who need additional standard print
assessment books as well as accommodated assessment books can order these
materials in TIDE using the Additional Materials Orders (AMO) feature. Please let your
Corporation Test Coordinator know if you need to order additional materials for any of
your students.

Please make sure that all boxes are kept so that assessment books can be returned
after testing is completed.

Instructions for Administering Braille and Large Print Tests
Test Administrators must provide users of both braille and large print versions of the test
with sufficient time to complete the test. The STC should provide Test Administrators
with braille and large print kits as appropriate. The following materials are included in
the braille and large print test kits.

                   Braille Test Kits                  Large Print Test Kits
