Extended Assessment: Test Administrator Training Info

Background: To administer Extended Assessments to students in the state of Oregon, educators must be appropriately trained as either a Qualified Assessor or a Qualified Trainer of the Extended Assessments. Educators who are trained in the process of administering the Extended Assessments to students are referred to as Qualified Assessors (QAs). Educators who are trained to administer the assessments as well as to train others in the administration of the assessments are referred to as Qualified Trainers (QTs).

To be a Qualified Assessor
Individuals interested in becoming Qualified Assessors will be trained by current QTs (i.e., have either refreshed and/or re-qualified or have been trained and qualified by state-level trainers this year). Qualified Assessor trainings and updates will be scheduled by their local Qualified Trainers to occur between November and the close of the assessment administration window (cf. Current Test Schedule PDF on the Extended Assessment website http://www.ode.state.or.us/teachlearn/testing/admin/alt/ea/testschd_1314.pdf PDF).

To be a Qualified Trainer
Individuals who were Qualified Assessors last year and have the necessary permission from their districts to become a Qualified Trainer will be trained by state-level trainers in one of the regional trainings scheduled to occur in November (cf. “New Qualified Trainer and Qualified Assessor Training Notice” PDF on the Extended Assessment Training webpage: http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=2689).
