Test Administrator Training

All test administrators for all state assessments are required to be trained for each state assessment they will administer. To support test coordinators, RIDE has developed a Test Administrator Core Training that covers topics applicable across all state assessments.

The presentation is editable so that schools can include information about their cell phone policy, process for tracking secure materials, testing calendars, and any other test administration information specific to their school.

Please note that this training is a core training and intended to supplement assessment-specific materials and administration information. It does not take the place of any online training modules required for test administrators prior to administering certain assessments.

  • The Test Administrator Core Training Presentation - ACCESS and Alternate ACCESS for ELLs [PPTX] (posted 11.16.2021): This presentation is required as part of training for test administrators involved with planning and administering the ACCESS for ELLs or Alternate ACCESS for ELLs tests. Sections of this presentation can be edited by district and school administrators to include district and school policies and procedures that all test administrators should know before testing begins.
  • The Test Administrator Core Training Presentation - DLM, NGSA, RICAS [PPTX] (posted 2.8.2022): This presentation is required as part of training for test administrators involved with planning and administering the DLM, NGSA, or RICAS state tests. Sections of this presentation can be edited by district and school administrators to include district and school policies and procedures that all test administrators should know before testing begins.

Test Coordinator Resources

All test coordinators are required to participate in the RI State Assessment Program (RISAP) General Policies Overview training in addition to the test coordinator trainings for the state assessments that will be administered in their district/school.

The RISAP overview test coordinator training took place on January 19 as the second portion of the January Test Coordinator Monthly Webinar, and is posted separately (from that webinar) below.

The assessment-specific trainings will be posted in the sections below: ACCESS, RICAS, NGSA, and DLM trainings are already posted; PSAT10 and SAT will be posted in March.

NEW! RIDE has posted a Spring 2022 Test Coordinator Training FAQs document (2.25.2022) with questions asked during the RISAP Overview, RICAS, and NGSA test coordinator trainings.
