2020-2021 CAASPP Test Security Affidavit for Non TOMS Users

1. Which of the following describes your role associated with the CAASPP for the 2020–2021 school year? *This question is required.

I acknowledge that I will have access to one or more of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) achievement tests pursuant to Education Code section 60640, for the purpose of administering the test(s). I understand that these materials are highly secure and may be under copyright restrictions and it is my professional responsibility to protect their security as follows:

1. I will not divulge the contents of the CAASPP achievement tests and corresponding test materials to any other person through verbal, written, or any other means of communication. This includes, but is not limited to, sharing or posting test content via the Internet or by email without the prior express written permission of the CDE.

2. I will not copy or take a photo of any part of the achievement test(s) or corresponding test materials. This includes, but is not limited to, photocopying (including enlarging) and recording without the prior expressed written permission of the CDE.

3. Except during the actual testing administrations or as otherwise provided for by law, I will keep the achievement test(s) and corresponding test materials secure until the test(s) are actually distributed to pupils when tests and testing materials are checked in and out by the CAASPP test site coordinator. Keeping materials secure means that test materials are required to be kept in a securely locked room that can be entered only with a key or keycard and, when possible, in a locked storage cabinet within that room.

4. I will limit access to the achievement test(s) and corresponding test materials by test examinees to the actual testing periods when they are taking the test(s). I understand that only pupils who are testing and LEA staff participating in the test administration who have signed a CAASPP Test Security Affidavit may be in the room when and where an achievement test is being administered.

     A. I will keep all assigned, generated, or created usernames, passwords, and logins secure and not divulge pupil personal information to anyone other than the pupil to whom the information pertains for the purpose of logging on to the test delivery system.

     B. I will not allow anyone other than the assigned pupils to log into their assigned test. I may assist pupils with using their information to log into their assigned test.

     C. I will not use a pupil's information to log in as a pupil or allow a pupil to log in using another pupil's information.

5. I will not allow pupils to access electronic devices that allow them to access outside information, communicate with other pupils, or photograph or copy test content. This includes, but is not limited to, cell phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), tablets, laptops, cameras, and electronic translation devices.

6. I will collect and account for all achievement test materials following each testing session and will not permit pupils to remove any test materials by any means from the room(s) where testing takes place. After each testing session, I will count all test booklets and answer documents before allowing any pupil to leave the testing room and/or ensure that all pupils have properly logged off the test delivery system.

7. I will not review any achievement test questions, passages, performance tasks, or other test items independently or with pupils or any other person at any time, including before, during, or following testing. I understand that this includes any discussion between LEA staff for training or professional development whether one-on-one or in a staff meeting.

8. I will not, for any achievement test, develop scoring keys, review any pupil responses, or prepare answer documents. I understand that this includes coaching pupils or providing any other type of assistance to pupils that may affect their responses. This includes, but is not limited to, both verbal cues (e.g., interpreting, explaining, or paraphrasing the test items or prompts) and nonverbal cues (e.g., voice inflection, pointing, or nodding head) to the correct answer (anything that may indicate correct or incorrect answers), or completing or changing pupils' answers.

9. I will return all achievement tests and correspondent test materials to the designated CAASPP test site coordinator each day upon completion of testing. I understand that all test booklets, answer documents, and scratch paper shall be returned to the CAASPP test site coordinator each day immediately after testing has been completed for storage or confidential destruction.

10. If I administer and/or observe the administration of an alternate assessment, (CAA) which means that I am a certificated or a licensed LEA employee and a trained examiner, I will keep all the alternate assessment materials in a securely locked room, and, when possible, in a locked storage cabinet within that room except when I am preparing for the administration, administering, or observing the administration of the assessment to pupils.

11. I will actively supervise pupils throughout the paper-pencil testing session to ensure that they are working on the correct test section or part, marking their answers in the correct section of their answer documents, following instructions, and are accessing only authorized materials (non-embedded universal tools, designated supports, accommodations, instructional supports for alternate assessments or unlisted resources) needed for the test being administered.

12. I will actively supervise pupils throughout the testing session and verify that pupils have selected the appropriate assessment for the testing session and have completed any necessary preceding test sections and/or classroom activities.

13. I will administer the achievement test(s) in accordance with the directions for test administration and test administration manuals prepared by the CAASPP testing contractor(s), or any additional guidance provided by the CAASPP test contractor(s). I understand that the unauthorized copying, sharing, or reusing of any test booklet, test question, performance task, or answer document by any means is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, photocopying, recording, emailing, messaging (instant, text, or multimedia messaging service, or digital application), using a camera/camera phone, and sharing or posting test content via the Internet without the express prior written permission of the CDE.

14. I have been trained to administer the achievement tests.
