You can view/manage individual student state testing info via **Student Data>Modify Student>State Tests>State Testing Data**.

There are tools you can run to update some of this info on the **NJ>NJSmart>Tools>Assessment Tools** screen as well.

Some fields may also be updated via **Student Data>Mass Change**.

*Here is a webinar about using the various tools we have added in to update these fields**.*

**Specific tools for NJSLA/Start Strong fields that can be run via NJ>NJSmart>Tools>Assessment Tools**:

**X.1 - Copy Assessment Test Info Fields from one Assessment to another**

All data in 'From' assessment (Session Name, Test Code etc.) will be copied into 'To' Assessment. All data in 'To' assessment will first be removed before copy

NOTE: There is a subject dropdown for you to update the specific subject (MATH, ELA, SCIENCE) - so you would have to run it for each one.

Make sure you select a School in the "For Student in" field when using this tool.

**X.2 - Mass Update Assessment Test Info Fields**

There is a subject dropdown for you to update the specific subject (MATH, ELA, SCIENCE) - so you would have to run it for each one.

__Note:__ there is a similar tool in **Student Data>Mass Change** for this. Select "Assessment Testing Data" in Step 2 to access it there. Make sure you select a School in the "For Student in" field when using this tool.

**A.0 - Create Student Lists for Block Testing **

This will create a student list for students enrolled in semester courses. Students will be added to this list if they

- Are in grades 09, 10 , 11 or 12.
- Are already set with a test code of ELA09, ELA10, ELA11, ALG01, ALG02 or GEO01
- Are enrolled in a course in the selected semester (below) with a NCES SCED code of 01001 ELA09, 01002 ELA10 or 01003 ELA11 (if ELA is included in selection below), or with a code of: 02052 Algebra I, 02053 Algebra I Part 1, 02054 Algebra I Part 2, 02055 Transition Algebra, 02056 Algebra II, 02106 Trigonometry/Algebra, 02071 Informal Geometry, 02072 Geometry, 02073 Analytic Geometry, 02074 Principles of Algebra and Geometry, 02075 Particular Topics in Geometry, or 02079 Geometry Other (if MATH is included in selection below).

**A.1 - Populate student's "Test Code" for MATH**

Pre-Secondary Students Test Code set based on grade level (e.g. MAT03, MAT08). Secondary students will have the following test codes set based on NCES SCED code of courses found in the students current year schedule.

- ALG01 if student scheduled into 02052 Algebra I, 02053 Algebra I Part 1, 02054 Algebra I Part 2, or 02055 Transition Algebra (and 52052 Algebra I if 7 or 8th grade option selected))
- ALG02 if student scheduled into 02056 Algebra II or 02106 Trigonometry/Algebra
- GEO01 if student scheduled into 02071 Informal Geometry, 02072 Geometry, 02073 Analytic Geometry, 02074 Principles of Algebra and Geometry, 02075 Particular Topics in Geometry, or 02079 Geometry Other (and 52072 Geometry I if 7 or 8th grade option selected)

- New option, "Exclude students based on NJSmart Federal HS Math Testing Req field." added to tool A.1 - Populate student's "Test Code" for MATH.

The following codes will qualify for exemption:

A = Student registered for and/or took the Algebra I assessment in high school.

C = Student took Algebra I in middle school and registered for and/or took the Geometry assessment in high school.

D = Student took Algebra I in middle school and registered for and/or took the Algebra II assessment in high school.

E = Student took Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II in middle school

**A.2 - Populate student's "Test Code" for ELA **

### Students will have test code set based on grade level (e.g. ELA03) or Secondary NCES course (e.g. ELA10 for 01002)

- Students with "Exempt Taking ELA" set to true on their State Tests screen with an active ESL/LEP record and in their first year of enrollment in th US will be set to EXELA - LEP Exempt.

- New option, "DO NOT assign Test Code of ELA10 to students" added to tool A.2 - Populate student's "Test Code" for ELA

**A.3 - Populate "Test Code" for Science**

### Students will have test code set based on courses NCES codes or grade level.

- Students with "Exempt Taking Science" set to true on their State Tests screen will receive no test code.

**B.1 - Populate students "Test Administrator" or "Staff Member Identifier" or "DLM Educator Identifiers" fields with their current Homeroom or Print Period Teacher in 202X-2X.**

- If the HR teacher is marked as a shared teacher and the "Shared/Co Teacher 1" field is filled out on the shared teacher record, the staff member in the "Shared/Co Teacher 1" field will be used as the examiner.

**B.2 - Populate students "Test Administrator" or "Session Name" fields based off of their Scheduled Courses in 202X-2X.**

**READ CAREFULLY**

This tool will examine each student's schedule. For Math, if a course is found in the selected MP with an NCES SCED code equal to one of the following:

02052 Algebra I, 02053 Algebra I Part 1, 02054 Algebra I Part 2, 02055 Transition Algebra, 52052 Algebra I, 02056 Algebra II, 02106 Trigonometry/Algebra

02071 Informal Geometry, 02072 Geometry, 02073 Analytic Geometry, 02074 Principles of Algebra and Geometry, 02075 Particular Topics in Geometry, or 02079 Geometry Other

then the Test Administrator (or Session Name) for MATH will be updated with the teacher of that course.

For English, if a course is found with an NCES Subject Code of 01 or 51 (English Language and Literature) then the Test Administrator for ELA will be updated with the teacher of that course.

BE AWARE that if a student is scheduled into more than one course with a NCES Subject Code of 01 or 51 within the selected MP, then one of those courses will be chosen randomly and selected

as the Test Administrator (or Session Name) for ELA. It is not advised that you run this process for ELA if this is the case.

For Science, if a course is found with an NCES of 53234, 53235, 53236, 53238 or NCES Subject Area of 03 (Science) then the Test Administrator for Science will be updated with the teacher of that course.

BE AWARE that if a student is scheduled into more than one course with a NCES Subject Code of 03 within the selected MP, then one of those courses will be chosen randomly and selected

as the Test Administrator (or Session Name) for Science. It is not advised that you run this process for Science if this is the case.

You may choose to update only Math or only ELA or only Science in the selection method below. The Test Administrator (or Session Name) field will only be updated if a teacher is found based on above criteria.

**B.3 - Populate students "Session Name" field based on "Test Administrator" field.**

**B.4 - Populate students "Session Name" field based on Student Homeroom**

**B.5 - Populate students "Class Name" Identifier field based on "Staff Member Identifier" field. **
