California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

2 Purpose

Purpose

The purpose of this Webcast is to review your local educational agency’s (LEA’s) technological resources to ensure they meet requirements for the online CAASPP assessments.

6 Data Readiness

Data Readiness

CALPADS is the sole source for student demographic, enrollment, and program data for the student test registration system known as the Test Operations Management System (TOMS) All updates must be made in CALPADS. LEAs cannot update student demographic, enrollment, or program data in TOMS. Student accommodations and designated supports are not collected in CALPADS. Student accommodations and supports cannot be uploaded by the LEA until CALPADS data is available in TOMS.

7 Staff Coordination

Staff Coordination

Planning the technology components for online testing requires close coordination and collaboration among: LEA CAASPP coordinators CALPADS administrators IT/LEA technology coordinators Curriculum staff

8 Internet and Network Requirements

Internet and Network Requirements

9 Internet and Network Requirements

Internet and Network Requirements

For testing to occur, a stable, high-speed Internet connection is required since the Test Delivery System (TDS) administers tests via the Internet.

10 Internet

Internet

High-level Technology Overview

State hosted-test delivery servers

Test proctor using standard Web browser

Student using Smarter Balanced Secure Browser software application

11 Internet

Internet

Smarter Balanced Server Hosting

Consortium Hosted Item authoring, item bank, data warehouse, reporting, Digital Library

State Hosted Test delivery, test scheduling, test registration, reporting, scoring

12 Network Configuration Settings

Network Configuration Settings

To ensure proper communication and optimal performance: Configure network firewalls and proxy servers to allow traffic to the URLs, IP addresses, and ports without content filtering (see Appendix A of the Technical Specifications Manual). Give the URLs and IP addresses high priority settings if your network uses network traffic management techniques (e.g., traffic shaping, packet prioritization, Quality of Service). Configure Web proxy servers NOT to cache data from the test delivery system (TDS). Maintain a good bandwidth. To avoid timeouts during tests: Set session timeout values to be longer than the average scheduled testing time.

13 Bandwidth Considerations

Bandwidth Considerations

Number of students testing concurrently Size of test content (number of items and average size of each item) Low bandwidth: selected-response items High bandwidth: items with animations, audio clips, or American Sign language videos Reduce other Internet-enabled applications that compete for bandwidth (e.g., attendance, bell time, sending grades) Opening the secure browser and accessing a test for the first time consumes more bandwidth than accessing a test a subsequent time

14 Bandwidth Considerations

Bandwidth Considerations

Location where the secure browser is installed Installing the secure browser locally on each testing workstation is recommended. This avoids bandwidth competition that would occur if workstations access the browser from a network or shared drive. Wireless networking solutions

15 Bandwidth Considerations

Bandwidth Considerations

Minimum of 20K bits/second must be available for each student connected to a system Average bandwidth used by the secure browser for testing:

1

8K bits/second

50

400K bits/second

100

800K bits/second

5–15K bits/second

250–750K bits/second (0.25–0.75M bits/second)

500–1500K bits/second (0.5–1.5M bits/second)

Number of Students Testing Concurrently in School/Building

Average Estimated Bandwidth Consumed During Subsequent Startup of Secure Browser

Average Estimated Bandwidth Consumed During Testing

16 Determining Bandwidth Requirements

Determining Bandwidth Requirements

To determine a reasonable number of concurrent test sessions: Consider bandwidth for both online testing and all other non–testing-related Internet traffic. Run a network diagnostic. Bandwidth Checker is available on http://caaspp.org. Other network diagnostic tools are listed in the Technical Specifications Manual. For wired networks, consider using switches instead of hubs. For Internet networks, consider the speed of the Internet Service Provider’s (ISP’s) router connection.

17 Network Configuration

Network Configuration

All communication with the TDS takes place over the following Internet port/protocol combinations: Make sure the above mentioned ports are open.

Port/Protocol

Purpose

80/tcp

HTTP (initial connection only)

443/tcp

HTTPS (secure connection)

18 Wireless Networking

Wireless Networking

Maintain a ratio of wireless systems to wireless access points (WAPs) of no more than 20 to 1. 15 to 1 for older WAPs Wireless traffic should use WPA2/AES data encryption. Try out the Bandwidth Checker, available at http://caaspp.org.

19 Wireless Networking

Wireless Networking

Recommendations on the optimal number of testing workstations per wireless connection:

802.11g Access Point

802.11n Access Point

802.11g Wireless Cards

20 workstations or devices

40 workstations or devices

802.11n Wireless Cards

20 workstations or devices

40 workstations or devices

Mix of 802.11g and 802.11n Wireless Cards

20 workstations or devices

40–50 workstations or devices (depending on the ratio of wireless cards used)
