Handbook of Test Security

High stakes tests are the gatekeepers to many educational and professional goals. As such, the incentive to cheat is high. This Handbook is the first to offer insights from experts within the testing community, psychometricians, and policymakers to identify and develop best practice guidelines for the design of test security systems for a variety of testing genres. Until now this information was scattered and often resided inside testing companies. As a result, rather than being able to learn from each other’s experiences, each testing entity was left to re-create their own test security wheel. As a whole the book provides invaluable insight into the prevalence of cheating and “best practices” for designing security plans, training personnel, and detecting and investigating misconduct, to help develop more secure testing systems and reduce the likelihood of future security breaches. Actual case studies from a variety of settings bring to life how security systems really work. Examples from both domestic and international programs are provided. Highlights of coverage include: • Best practices for designing secure tests • Analysis of security vulnerabilities for all genres of testing • Practical cheating prevention and detection strategies • Lessons learned in actual security violations in high profile testing programs. Part I focuses on how tests are delivered for paper-and-pencil, technology-based, and classroom testing and writing assessment. Each chapter addresses the prevalence of the problem and threats to security, prevention, and detection. Part II addresses issues essential to maintaining a secure testing program such as planning and monitoring, physical security, the detection of group-based cheating, investigating misconduct, and communicating about security-related issues. Part III examines actual examples of cheating-- how the cheating was done, how it was detected, and the lessons learned. Part III provides insight into security issues within each of the Association of Test Publishers’ four divisions: certification/licensure, clinical, educational, and industrial/organizational testing. Part III’s conclusion revisits the issues addressed in the case studies and identifies common themes. Intended for organizations, professionals, educators, policy makers, researchers, and advanced students that design, develop, or use high stakes tests, this book is also ideal for graduate level courses on test development, educational measurement, or educational policy.

The Common Core State Standards are a set of standards for Kindergarten through 12th grade that have been adopted by 45 states in an effort to ensure that all U.S. students are equally prepared for college and careers. But no change in educational policy will ever meet with universal approval, and this change is proving controversial for many reasons. Parents are getting secondhand, biased information in many cases, and lack a clear understanding of what these standards are and how they will affect how and what their children learn. Idiot's Guides: The Common Core Standards will help parents, students, teachers, student teachers, and administrators understand the details of this far-reaching initiative. In it, readers get: A history of the development of the standards-how they came to be, where they have been implemented, and how they compare with those of other countries. An outline of what makes these standards different from previous statewide and standards. Details and examples of how students' classroom learning will change under the Common Core. Ways parents can help students at home--including how to help with homework that may be quite different than what they remember. A breakdown of the standards for English, math, and literacy across other subject areas, by grade level. Answers to the most commonly asked questions about the Common Core. Information on the assessments that students will take as part of the new curricula.

Supporting students and teachers moving toward Common Core State Standards The move to Common Core State Math Standards represents two significant transitions for teachers and students. First, the new standards identify rigorous mathematics content that often exceeds previous expectations. Second, the vision for the Common Core encompasses a series of Mathematical Practices that include skills, processes, and attitudes that can only be developed through extensive experience with skillfully facilitated problem solving and effective discourse. To facilitate these TRANSITIONS, Walch Education has developed this collection of problem-solving tasks that target the new content and embody the new practices. Request a free task These 11 tasks will help you to infuse existing curriculum with both the content and the practices of the Common Core and support problem-based teaching and learning. Each task takes only 20â 30 minutes for students to complete with another 10â 20 minute debrief to enhance reasoning and communication, and to crystallize understanding. For the teacher: background information and implementation suggestions links to relevant resources, content, and research a series of suggested questions to encourage problem solving, reflection, and discourse, guiding rather than leading students For the students: a meaningful context that may transcend traditional school subjects opportunity to collaborate and to grapple with real problem solving
