Test administrator training modules

As part of the TEA’s ongoing efforts to improve security measures in the state’s testing program and to help ensure that test results are meaningful and valid, the Student Assessment Division has developed web-based training modules for test administrators. This online training, which currently consists of the three modules below, is optional but strongly recommended. It is designed to supplement the mandatory training required of all personnel involved in testing.

Module 1: Active Monitoring Module 2: Distribution of Test Materials Module 3: Proper Handling of Secure Materials

Assessment Management System Webinar Training

Training webinars can include prerecorded presentations, FAQs, and more.

2020-2021 Webinars
Webinar Trainings for Administration Activities and Interim Assessments

A series of webinar training opportunities for administration activities will be offered in 2020-2021. Due to space limitations, district testing coordinators and technology coordinators who want to participate must register to attend these trainings. Space is limited to the first 1000 registrants for each training session. Registrants will receive an email from no-reply@zoom.us. Use the Zoom link provided in the email to log into the webinar on the day of the training

UPDATE: In response to the extension of the spring 2021 STAAR online administrations from two weeks to five, and the implications this change will have on scoring and reporting, ETS will host four live training sessions of the Online Testing Preparation for Spring 2021 webinar in February and March to provide multiple opportunities for district and campus personnel to listen and ask questions. The content presented in each session will remain the same and will follow standard ETS webinar format.

To accommodate this change, ETS will not have spring versions of the Overiew of the STAAR Online Testing Platform and the Technology Staff Network Configuration, Secure Browswer Installation, and Device Set Up webinars because there are no scheduled updates to the secure browser application and no new personal needs and preferences (PNPs). District can continue to access the recordings of the webinars from the fall in the District and Campus Coordinator Resources on the 2020-2021 Summative Webinar Recordings(Fall) webpage.
