From Tuesday, June 10, through Monday, June 30, School Test Coordinators must enter and assign TA numbers to all LEAP and GEE test administrators via the Test Administrator System.

Test administrators must use their assigned number for all LEAP and GEE tests they administer.

The summer administration of LAA 2 will not use TA numbers.Summer Remediation Field on LEAP andLAA 2 Answer DocumentsField H1 needs to be coded for any student who participated in summer remediation provided by the school or the district.General AlertsSchool Test Coordinators (STCs) must assign TA numbers Tuesday, June 10 Monday, June 30, and verify that all LEAP and GEE used documents have a TA number coded in field H2. Failure to code the TA number could result in a testing irregularity.

Security checklists must be used to track materials. Electronic copies are available on www.LEAPweb.org. Be sure to indicate on the checklists which unused answer documents received Test Not Taken labels. Put student names on the checklist.

STCs must use the provided resealable plastic bags for the return of LEAP and GEE approved home study program and LEAP nonpublic school students answer documents to the District Test Coordinator (DTC). Nonpreidentified bar-code labels from testing sites must not be affixed to answer documents for these students; the DTC will affix nonpreidentified labels with site code 998 or 999 after testing as needed.

STCs must return district office documents (security checklist copies, testing irregularities documentation, the Oath of Security and Confidentiality Statement) in the provided envelope. The DTC should return the envelope for subsequent pickups as needed. Scan required paperwork whenever possible.

STCs must provide test administrators a list of students approved for accommodations, as well as the accommodations the students are to receive.

When testing students approved for accommodations, test administrators must make sure they provide the assigned accommodations and code the provided accommodations on the students answer documents.When packaging materials for return, stack secure materials according to security numbers. This will aid in verifying materials against security checklists.Returns 1 and 2: Used answer documents for more than one grade or content area may be boxed together but must be stacked by grade and by content area.Returns 2 and 3: The School Test Coordinator at a testing site may box LEAP and GEE materials together, but LAA 2 materials must be boxed separately.Return 3: Test booklets must be boxed separately from unused answer documents, but materials for more than one grade and content area may be boxed together.
