Training of Teachers Who Will Be Raters • As part of annual spring TELPAS Training of Teachers Who Will Be Raters • As part of annual spring TELPAS administration procedures training, holistic rating training requirements are reviewed with raters, as well as information about how to access the online training and calibration components • In addition, raters receive training on assessment procedures such as how to assemble writing collections, how to record students’ proficiency ratings, etc. CISD CTC Training - TELPAS Holistic January 2015 12

Two Types of Training • Online basic training course • This course is for Two Types of Training • Online basic training course • This course is for new raters. • It provides instruction on using the PLD rubrics and gives raters practice rating students in each language domain. • There are separate courses for K-1 and 2 -12. • Online calibration • This is for ALL raters. • Raters use the PLDs to rate students in each language domain. • Raters have three opportunities to calibrate on assigned grade clusters CISD CTC Training - TELPAS Holistic January 2015 13

Training & Calibration Grade Clusters • Raters must know their assigned grade cluster to Training & Calibration Grade Clusters • Raters must know their assigned grade cluster to select the appropriate online training. • Raters should consult with their campus testing coordinator if they are unsure of their assigned cluster.

Raters with Students in Multiple Grade Clusters “within” Grades 2 -12 • Raters are Raters with Students in Multiple Grade Clusters “within” Grades 2 -12 • Raters are required to train and calibrate in the cluster in which they have the most ELLs. • As a best practice, these raters should also review online basic training course practice activities in the additional cluster(s). Example: A grade 2– 5 ESL teacher has most of her ELLs in grade 3. She must complete training and calibration in grades 3– 5. As a best practice, she should review the online practice activities for grade 2 to check her readiness to apply the rubrics appropriately. CISD CTC Training - TELPAS Holistic January 2015 15

Raters with Students in Multiple Grade Clusters that “include” Grades K-1 • Because of Raters with Students in Multiple Grade Clusters that “include” Grades K-1 • Because of differences in the instructional content and rating rubrics, these raters must complete training and calibration for K-1 and at least one other cluster in 2 -12. • Raters with more than one additional cluster should train in the cluster in which they have the most ELLs. • As a best practice, these raters should also review online basic training course practice activities in the additional cluster(s). Example: A grade 1– 3 ESL teacher has most of his ELLs in grade 2. He must complete training and calibration in grades K– 1 and 2. As a best practice, he should review the online practice activities for grades 3– 5 to check his readiness to apply the rubrics appropriately for his 3 rd grade students.
